I think I have him here.

Benjamin Honaker; born August 28, 1836 in Virginia.  Died June 6, 1905 in Elmo, Missouri.  He was an Ohio Volunteer Infantry soldier in the Civil War.  He married Louisa J. Abbott on Dec. 31, 1863 in Marion, OH.  She was born on May 31, 1841 in Licking County, OH and Died May 16, 1934 in Elmo, Missouri.

Children: Elliott; b May 13, 1867-----Elizabeth J.; b Oct. 9, 1869;married Alexander Horn------Mary; b Oct. 18, 1871------Fred; b Sept. 7 1875-----James b; July 24, 1877----Vera b; April 2, 1879.......Clara b; June 1882----Houstan b; Aug. 18, 1887

Im thinking that his father was Jacob Honaker and his grandfather was Abraham Honaker.

It appears that Benjamin had a brother named James who was born Feb. 28, 1843 and died while in the Ohio Volunteer Infantry from fever on April 28, 1864.

You get a double whammy there:)

Apparently their father, Jacob moved the family from Montgomery County, VA to Marion County, OH.  Green Camp Township, Ohio in 1839 or 1840.

Let me know if you think this is him.
