Right. When Honaker Family in America was published in 1998, We had Jake's generation and children, but were not able to get any information on families of the children except for Nettie, Opha, and Fred. Since then we have gone some further and have the following, which also needs to be updated for the book's next edition which we are starting to work on now. Very glad to hear from you. Would you be able to help us?

For starters need your dad's newspaper obituary, full date & place he married your mother, her full date & place born, her father's full name, her mother's full maiden name. Full given names of you nine children, your full date & place born (Saxon?)

Please e-mail to me at, or mail to Tom Hanlin, 362 Calle Escada, Santa Rosa Beach FL 32459. If you would like a sample copy of the Honaker Family Newsletter, send your mailing address.

Kind regards, your cousin, Tom Hanlin, volunteer, Honaker Family Assn.
