Honness, James E., a native of Tompkins county, born in 1828, came to Caton, in 1853 with his brothers, Benjamin and Joseph, buying 171 acres where he has since resided. Joseph died here in 1888. and Benjamin in 1893. Mr. Honness is a staunch Republican. Benjamin F. Honness was in his early days, and for a number of years after moving to Caton, engaged in teaching; his success and prominence as such gave him a standing and influence to that extent that he was elected to the office of superintendent of schools in the town where he had for many years served as teacher. His counsel was much sought after on all questions of importance where educational matters were in question, and freely given when desired. His death was a great loss to the community where he lived.
