Honeywell, Ira 1774 - 1852
Draper [settled in 1814]
In Feb 1811 Ira Honeywell moved into a cabin which he built during the previous winter. He brought with him his wife Charlotte Andrews 1785 - 1861, who he married in Prescott on 29 Nov 1801 and their son Rice 1802 - 1885. He received the land, Nepean Twp, Con 1, Lot 26 OF (Ottawa Front) from his father Rice Honeywell 1760 - 1839, on condition that he settle it.
Ref; Ottawa Past and Present pg 25, 26
Their son Rice married Margaret Hare 1805 - 1890.
I have not been able to find a Family History on the Honeywell Family
Hare family Ref; G-169 'Tales of the Hares' Ottawa Br. Library Dewey# 929.271 H222

The Honeywell's lived in isolation for 3 years till a Draper settled nearby and only stayed for less than a year. When researching another family I found the following in 1852 Census Canada East Ottawa County, now Pontiac Co, Clarendon Twp p.1d,2a (3) a James Draper, age 77, born in US,
a carpenter and a Quaker. Would these be the same person? I know there are Draper families near Shawville
