Hans was born to Hans Jacob Honaker (Honegger) and Anna Bleyer Honaker in Pratteln, Baselland, Switzerland a bit more than a year before the family sailed for America on the H.M.S. Crown in May 1749.

He was the young couple's first and only child. Due to absolutely deplorable living conditions aboard ship, both little Hans and his mother became gravely ill and never saw the New World.

This information is taken from "Hans Jacob Honegger- From Switzerland to America" by Nadine W. Larsen. (bio abridged by William Mehlhouse)
