Most Honakers in America descend from 1749 Swiss immigrant Hans Jacob Honaker. One of his sons born in the upper Shenandoah Valley was Martin[1]. Your line is Martin[1] (settled in present-day Honaker, Va.) Isaac[2], Martin[3], Elias[4], Morgan Thomas[5], Lorine Mildred[6], Brenda, Bradley, Darlene, Dawn[7].

We are very short of information on the last few generations of your family and would sure appreciate your help. Could you give us the full names, full birth dates & places of you four kids, for openers? Does your mother still live in Hurleyville, N.Y.?

Where do you live? May be able to suggest a library that has our 1998 book, Honaker Family in America, 1,437 pages. You are on p. 700. Our book covers the known descendants born in America. A prior book, not in print now, takes the family history back to 1500s in Switzerland.

With kind regards, your cousin, Tom Hanlin, volunteer, Honaker Family Assn., Inc., P.O. Box 3636, Alexandria VA 22302-0636, 703-751-7321,
You might want to get our newsletter, $15 a year for 6 issues. Our next reunion is in Honaker, Va., in August.
