She and her mother moved from New York to join her father in Scotland County, Missouri, when Mary was four, arriving on September 22, 1856. The family settled in the Brock community in Union Township. Mary married Charles Addison Honiter on January 1, 1874, in Memphis, Missouri. They had three children: Parley Clifton, Zilla Anna, and Beulah Benton Honiter. Mary died of tuberculosis at a young age, leaving her children in the care of her husband and her mother Sarah Anna (Thomas) Collins. She was a talented artist and some of her sketches survive today in the hands of her great great grandchildren.

Mary Salina (Collins) Honiter
Mary S. Honiter, who departed this life March 8th, was the daughter of Silas P. and Sarah A. Collins. She was born in the state of New York, July 23d, 1852. Her parents came to Scotland county, Missouri, when she was about four years old. Her father died September 30th, 1860, leaving his daughter and a younger son to the care of their mother, who remained upon the farm her husband entered. Here Mary grew to womanhood and was converted and joined the M.E. Church in 1871. She was united in marriage to Chas. Honiter Jan. 1st, 1874. She passed to rest on the afternoon of March 8th, 1894, leaving three children--one son and two daughters--the youngest seven years old, who with her husband, mother, brother and many of her life-long friends, now mourn her loss. Her whole life was an illustration of high Christian character. Patient under years of physical suffering, cheerful under affliction, a devoted mother, a loving daughter, a kind sister, an affectionate companion has passed away, whose memory will be long cherished and be a constant blessing to her children and those who knew her intimately. Her remains were borne to the church at Brock, where appropriate services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. S. W. Jones, after which internment was had in the cemetery near. Truly, “He giveth His beloved sleep.
