Honaker Family Assn.
In responce to your last posting concerning Florence S. Honaker: you said no information was available - I discovered the following so far. The original Martin Honaker was born March 1856 and died 2/28/1916; may have been a decendent of the pioneer Martin Honaker that came to Russell County, Va. in 1793, that one was born about 1770 and died about August 20, 1848. According to personal notes that my Aunt wrote for me before she died, her grandfather -Martin Honaker, died in 1916. The Martin born in 1856 married Frances L. Rose who was born 2/18/1856 and died 1/19/1921. She was from Tazewell, Va. Please note: from my Aunts info to me about her grandmother Frances the date agrees exactly with her grandmother's death. Martin and Frances were married on 4/26/1875. She was the daughter of John Rose who was born in 1831 and Elizabeth Hale who was born in 1831. They were married 9/12/1850.
The 1900 census list Martin and Frances along with these children: Nicholas, born 12/1885; Melvin H. born 3/1888; George W. born 5/1893; Catharine J. born 8/1877 and Cora born 1885. Please note: from my Aunts note to me: My Grandmother Florence had a sister named Cate and another sister that she didn't have a name for. My grandmother Florence's brother's were Bud and Nick.In the 1930 census Russell County - New Market district, they have Florence Honaker Franklin's bith about 1897. Please note here from my family's info when asked about grandmother Florence's bith, they told me there had been a fire that destoryed lots of birth records. Can you see how exited I am. When my mother died I found several old addresses with peoples names in her belongings and I today have written two letters to people I don't even know and sent them pictures of my grand parents and my mother hoping for a responce soon. I do not live in Alexandria now I live in Texas, but I still have family there and I hope to be there in the Spring.
