Hans Jacob HONEGGER – not really a brick wall

Door 10Few families know their history as well as the descendants of Hans Jacob Honegger (Honaker), a Swiss-German immigrant who sailed to Philadelphia in 1749. Credit is given to:
– Nadine W. Larson who researched Honegger’s ancestors and wrote “Hans Jacob Honaker – From Switzerland to America”, 1987, 249 pgs.
– Frieda Patrick Davison who edited “Honaker Family in America” (Gateway Press, Inc., Baltimore, MD, Copyright 1998 by The National Association of Hans Jacob Honaker Families)
– The National Association of Hans Jacob Honaker Families as they continue to make annual updates to the above book as well as publishing a quarterly newsletter.

My line is through Hans Jacob’s son Frederick Honaker who married Rachel Wiseman. They are buried in Rehoboth Church Cemetery, Union, Monroe County, West Virginia.

**I’m hoping someday FamilySearch.org will have the images of the Swiss records online so that I can see the documents that Nadine used to add 8 generations to his family tree back to the 1500s.

When I’m not doing genealogy and blogging, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful Luxembourg countryside.
