NICHOLAS L. HEANEY, who makes his home in Plumstead township and has followed stone cutting throughout his entire life, was born at Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania, October 12, 1855. His father, Thomas Heaney, was born in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, in 1818, and in early life learned the saddlemaker's trade, which he followed for a number of years. He also followed butchering for some years at Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania, and continued actively in business up to the time of his death, which occurred in 1862, when he was about forty-four years of age. He held membership in the German Reformed church. His first wife was prior to her marriage a Miss Ott, and there were five children by that union: John, deceased; Lizzie; Nancy; Taylor T.; and Lydia. For his second wife Thomas Heaney chose Miss Mary Ann Swartz, and they had two children, the daughter being Eva S., who died in childhood.

Their son, Nicholas L. Heaney, was born during the residence of his parents at Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania. He acquired his education in the common schools, and his life has been quietly and unventfully passed, yet it has been characterized by many estimable qualities, including reliability in business and progressiveness in citizenship. In his youth he learned the stone-cutter's trade, whch he has since followed and has also carried on agricultural pursuits, being a farmer of Plumstead township. He married Miss Mina C. Cress, and they are widely and favorably known in the township where they reside.
