Death's Harvest: Mr. F. Styrus Honaker died on Monday morning, May 27, 1907. He was taken with a stroke of paralysis as he was about to arise from his bed on that morning and died about eleven o'clock. He and his wife had been visiting some of his old friends and neighbors for a few days and was not permitted to return to his home which has recently been with Mr. James J. Green, a son-in-law, but died at the home of Mrs. Rebecca Honaker, the widow of his brother, John Honaker.

Mr. Honaker was born October 23, 1827 so was in the latter half of eightieth year. He was born in Greenbrier County and has lived for most of his life in the county. When about thirty years of age he removed to Augusta County, Virginia and resided there for about sixteen years.

It was during this residence in Augusta that the civil war began and he enlisted and was a member of Captain' Morris' Company of Edgar's Battalion. The writer of this sketch has heard him spoken of as a brave soldier. As a man, he was of kindly and sympathetic bearing among his fellow men, quiet and not a man of many words but still loved the company of others.

He was a member of the Salem Church and before the stroke that occasioned his death had expressed himself as expecting the summons and as ready when it should come. In his death he was blessed, for he passed away with very little, if any suffering.

He leaves an aged wife and five living children to mourn his departure, two sons, J. T. and J. W. Green, all residents of the county.
