John Honeyman1,2

M, b. circa 1729, d. 18 August 1822
John Honeyman
     John Honeyman was born circa 1729.1

     John was
"a distinguished character in the war of the Revolution. It was said at the time that he was a Tory and Loyalist and the "Spy of Washington" in the service of the British army. Much has been said for him and against him. The feeling against him was very strong especially amongst his own neighbors who accused him of driving off their cattle and selling them to the British. A jury was formed to consider the charges and made their decision in an inquisition against him bearing date, State of New Jersey, Somerset County, June 9. 1778, chargiilg him with .. oomforting the enemy." It is on file in the office of the Secretary of State at Trenton and it is interesting to note the number of ancestors mentioned in this work who signed the inquisition: among them were Hendrick Stryker, Thomas Skillman, Reynier Veghte, Peter Stryker, Joseph Hageman, Gerardus Beekman, John Voorhees, Abraham Voorhees, Abraham Ditmars, Abraham Beekman, Christopher Beekman (great-grandfather of the author of this book whose great, great, great, grandfather Ruloff Van Dyke, then an old man, was a member of the Committee of Safety that ordered the investigation), Garret Voorhees, and Martin Nevius. John Honeyman was captured a number of times but always escaped and it was a curious thing that each time he was taken before General Washington and was in secret oonference with him for an hour or so and always escaped in the niight. This is explained by Judge Van Dyke, one of his descendants, as being because he was really working for the American army and while appearing to be a spy for the British, he gave valuable information to General Washington."
on 9 June 1778 at New York.3

     John, married Mary Henry circa 1779.4,5

     John Honeyman died on 18 August 1822.1

     John Honeyman was buried at Lamington Presbyterian Cemetery, Lamington, Somerset, New Jersey.6,7 He was a
Revolutionary War spy for George Washington (b. June 20, 1729, Armagh, Ireland - d. August 18, 1822, Bedminster, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA) He married Mary Henry (1738-1801) of Colerain, Ireland on September 22, 1764 in Philadelphia and had the following children: Jane Honeyman (c1766-?) who married John William Henry (1763-?) and later married George Armstrong (1761-?); Margaret Honeyman (c1767-?); Mary Honeyman (c1769-?); John Honeyman II (1769-1830) born on September 09, 1769 in Bedminster who married Catherine Covert (1773-1859); Eleanor Honeyman (1772-?) born on April 06, 1772 in Griggstown who married Abraham Porter and moved to the western part of New York; James Honeyman (1776-?) born on May 26, 1776 in Griggstown, who married Mary Miller; and Sarah Honeyman (c1780-?) who married Abraham Van Dyke. His wife, Mary died on June 24, 1801, and John then married a widow in 1804: Elizabeth Estelle who was previously married to a Burrows. Donald W. Larson writes: "[He was] born [in] Armagh, Ireland 1729 of Scottish Parents, the son of a poor farmer. Like his brothers and sisters, he received little formal schooling. He worked as a farmer tending cattle, and plowing and planting fields till he was about 29 years old. At that time in 1758 he was conscripted by the English to fight their wars in North America. He was placed aboard the frigate Boyrie, the same boat as Colonel James Wolf, bound for Canada to fight the French. Colonel Wolf stumbled on the stairs and was caught by John. In appreciation of this valor, he took John's name and said he would see him when they landed. He made John his Body Guard, with orders to be with him all the time. He served under Colonel Wolfe and was there at the Siege of Louisburg fortress in Nova Scotia. The Colonel became general after that battle and then commanded the army that attacked Quebec. In 1759 at the Battle of The Plains of Abraham in Canada, Wolfe was shot. John carried him to his shelter where he died. It is possible that the famous painting by Benjamin West, has John Honeyman in it, but he is unidentified. John was given an Honorary Discharge from the Army and came down to the States. Wolfe had told him to look up Washington. He located him and Washington knew about him, as he had been in that battle. He made John his Private Spy. Before this happened he married Mary Henry of Colerain, Ireland, in Pennsylvania. They had several children. After Mary died on June 24, 1801, he married widow Mrs. Elizabeth Burrows in 1804. He died August 18, 1822, at 93 years of age. He is buried in the village churchyard at Lamington, New Jersey. there is a memorial to him in Washington's Crossing State Park, on the New Jersey side of the Delaware, where Washington and his ragged army landed, on the stormy night of December 25, 1776, on their march to the Battle of Trenton. There a plaque stands, put up in 1930, bearing this legend: Dedicated in Memory of John Honeyman Who Served Washington and the Continental Army as a Spy, drink of the fount of liberty let posterity inherit freedom. This man truly helped form what is now the United States of America. Note: There was a place called the Van Doren mill about one mile from the Honeyman home at Griggstown. It is thought that one of John Sr's children married a Van Doren, hence the later name, 'A. Van Doren Honeyman'. When the Revolutionary War was going against Washington, it was decided that John should go back to the British side as a 'Tory', where he could watch all their maneuvers. He worked as his Trades of Weavers, Butcher & Cattle Buyer. He found that the British were planning on a big celebration for Christmas at Trenton, New Jersey; and rules would be relaxed and a lot of drinking would be done. John started for the American side on the pretext of looking for cattle. He soon spotted a cow and ran after it, as he cracked his whip the noise attracted guards, Who had been warned to watch for the 'Tory' and capture him. He stumbled and they caught him. After a tussle, he was taken to Washington, Who dismissed the guards, after congratulating them on their capture. After considerable conversation, Washington recalled the guards telling them to feed the "Tory" and lock him in a small hut called a prison, it had no window, a pad lock was put on the door. Soon after a fire was seen in the vicinity, everyone went to fight it. In the morning the door was still locked but no prisoner was there. He went back to the British side and told of his escape. John went to another town to stay. While John was away until the end of the war, his family were threatened and ill treated by the neighbors, until one day a letter was read to them as follows: New Jersey American Camp, November A.D. 6, 1776. To the Good People of New Jersey and all whom it may concern: It is hereby ordered that the wife and family of John Honeyman of Griggstown, New Jersey; the notorious 'Tory' now within British lines and probably acting as a Spy, shall be protected and hereby are protected from all harm and annoyance, from every quarter, until further orders. This does not provide protection for John, himself. On December 25, 1776, with the information obtained by John, Washington captured Trenton, New Jersey; this was the beginning of the end of the war." (bio by: Richard Arthur Norton (1958-. ))

Hon. John Van Dyke, husband of Mary D.Strong
     Hon. John Van Dyke, son of Abraham Van Dyke and Sarah Honeyman, was born on 3 April 1807 at Lamington, Somerset, New Jersey.1,3 Hon. John Van Dyke was a Representive in Congress, Mayor of New Brunswick and Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey after 1825.4

     John, at age 34, married Mary Dix Strong, daughter of Prof. Theodore Strong LL.D. and Lucy Dix, on 7 October 1841.1

     In 1859, John was
"appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court of New Jersey and was seated upon the bench. But he rode and drove everywhere through the length and breadth of the state, in the darkest hours of the war, talking at every village and cross-road, telling the people that we could not fail with Lincoln at the helm. In order to uphold the government credit, then at its lowest ebb, he told another thing to his Jersey constituency, namely: that he had put every penny he could beg or borrow or command into government bonds, so sure was he that the government obligation would be met. It was a well-known man who was speaking, a bank president, and a Supreme Court Justice. His words had some weight in sustaining the drooping credit of the government."5


     Hon. John Van Dyke died at age 71, on 24 December 1878, at Wabasha, Wabasha, Minnesota.1,6,3

     An unknown person was layed to rest at Riverview Cemetery, Wabasha, Wabasha, Minnesota.7
