Our 1998 book, Honaker Family in America, is a descendancy on all the family that we knew existed when it was published in 1998. Coming down from the immigrant in 1749, we have Martin, Isaac, Martin, Elias, Morgan Thomas, Madison O'Coy (called Bob), Richard Dean, reportedly died 1993 in Pennsylvania. Could this be your father? It is the only Richard Dean we know of, but we don't know what we don't know.
