    Eli W. Honeyman, farmer; P. O. Troy is a prominent farmer; his parents, John and Mary Honeyman, of Virginia, were pioneers, who emigrated to Miami County early in its settlement. John was a soldier in the war of 1812 we regret that so little can be learned of them. Eli was born in Miami Co., May 14, 1834; Sept. 29, 1859, he was united in marriage to Miss Annie, daughter of John and Mary Miller. They were also pioneers, and should have a place in this history; their children were ten in number, four only survive; Albert, whose sketch appears in connection with other noted men of Monroe Township, Thomas J., Rhoda Z. and Annie, the wife of Eli Honeyman. They have been the parents of seven children, of whom Oliver M., Willis R., Mattie and Ory, survive; Oliver was born March 7,1863; Willis, Dec. 11, 1865; Mattie, May 27,1872 ; Ory, Jan. 4,1874.
