In 1850 at the age of 6, Charles Addison Honiter moved to Scotland County, Missouri, from Delaware County, Ohio, with the G. W. Harvey family. Family records and a handwritten copy of his obituary suggest that William and Mary (Bean) Honiter of Ohio were his parents. This, however, is contradicted by 1850 census data suggesting he was living next door to them with a widow named Elizabeth Honiter and her children just before moving to Missouri. Correspondence with another researcher studying the Honiter family in Delaware County, Ohio identifies George and Elizabeth Honiter as Charles' parents. This is further verified by settlement of the estate of George Honeter dated 29 March 1749 in which Charles is named as an heir. William Honeter, who was thought by the family to be Charles' father was actually an older brother.
Except for his service in the Civil War, Charles spent the rest of his life in Scotland County. On August 15, 1864, he enlisted in the Union Army as a private in Company I, Regiment 39, Infantry of Missouri. Following the war, he returned to Scotland County and married Mary Salina Collins, daughter of Silas Perkins Collins and Sarah Anna (Thomas) Collins, on January 1, 1874, in Memphis, Missouri. The couple farmed in Union Township and raised their three children there: Parley Clifton, Zilla Anna, and Beulah Benton Honiter.
Note: The last name has many spellings: Honiter, Honitor, Honeter, Honneter, Honnetter, etc. The family in Missouri used the spelling Honiter.
