We don't know how much you know about the family. Cora was fifth generation from the Swiss immigrant Hans Jacob Honaker, through his eldest son Frederick, born in Philadelphia. We did not know until seeing your posting that she ever had any children, and our dates for their birth appear wrong. If you would be kind enough to let us know how you are related to her, please send your data to Honaker Family Assn., P.O. Box 3636, Alexandria VA 22302. We will add it to the supplement to our 1998 book, Honaker Family in America. Thank you. Your cousin, Tom Hanlin.

32. Thomas Davidson[4] Honaker (Samuel Sams[3], Jacob[2], Frederick[1]). Born 11 Jul 1837 in Willow Bend, Monroe Co. (West) Va. Died 29 Jan 1922 in Guthrie (also reported as Sissonsville), Kanawha Co., W.Va. He was a gunsmith. Family legend is that he was a good singer. A West Virginia roster of Union soldiers lists a Thomas D. Honaker who was a sergeant in the 7th Cavalry, Co. E. Thomas Davidson lived in West Virginia and is the only presently-known Thomas D. who lived there in the correct timeframe.
       He married America Harrison, daughter of Alexander Harrison and Elizabeth Unknown, 8 Aug 1861. Born ca. 1845.
