Wife of John G. Honeywell.

John G. Honeywell was married in La Salle County, Illinois on March 29, 1868 to Frances B. Parker. One record lists her as a native of Washington County, Illinois, but this may very well actually be Washington, Tazewell County, Illinois. Frances B. Parker is believed to have been born on December 15, 1851. In 1850, the following Parker family is found in Woodford County, Illinois;
1850 Federal Census, District 56, Woodford Co., IL
James Parker, 80
Mary Parker, 65
James Parker, 30
Milldrew Parker, 25
Martin Parker, 23

There is a marriage of a James Parker to an Avey Bruce found in Woodford Co. on February 16, 1851 which may be the James Parker, age 30, of above.
