John, you descend from Hans Jacob Honaker, who landed at Philadelphia from Switzerland in 1749. A tremendous amount of research has been done on the family.
Please contact me at email@example.com or by mail at Honaker Family Assn., 105 Indian Bayou Drive, DESTIN FL 32541. You will want to purchase a few things including a composite picture we have of various views of Colonial Williamsburg's rifle attributed to Abraham Honaker, first American generation in your line. Two family histories also are available.
