    Dorsey Honeyman. One of the most prosperous and successful agriculturists of Miami county, Dorsey Honeyman is a representative of the best class of exponents of modern, farming, and his splendid tract of 235 acres in Monroe township gives evidence of his good management and progressive tendencies. He has passed his entire life in this community, having been born on his father's farm in Monroe township, June 24, 1866, a son of Andy and Mary (Pearson) Honeyman. His parents were lifelong farming people here and enjoyed the respect and esteem of all with whom they were associated. Of their four children, two are living: Dorsey; and Esther, the wife of Albert McManus, now a resident of California. Dorsey Honeyman received a public school education in his youth and was reared to the vocation of farming, which he adopted when he entered upon his independent career. Possessed of intelligence, ability and industry, he made rapid headway in his chosen calling, and his career has been one of continued advancement, characterized by his timely acceptance of such opportunities as have appeared. As he has prospered, he has added to his holdings from time to time, and now farms his entire 235 acres alone, save for the occasional assistance of his daughters. His improvements are modern in character and his buildings large, well equipped and attractive. Mr. Honeyman is primarily a general farmer, but also raises some live stock, and has been equally successful in both departments of his work. He married, March 31 1887, Anna, daughter of John and Sophia E. (Keller) Stockslager, well-known farming people of Union township, Miami county. To Mr. and Mrs. Honeyman there have been born five children: Guy C., who has a position under the United States Government, at Dayton; Bertha, who died in infancy, and Ethel, Dessie Ellen and Clara Golden, who reside with their parents. While Mr. Honeyman has not sought public or political preferment, he has been at all times a good citizen and a supporter of worthy movements, both in times of war and peace. His business integrity is unquestioned and he has numerous friends in Monroe township of long standing and established sincerity.
