"Indiana Land Entries, Vincennes District, 1807-1877", by Margaret R. Waters, pg 212.


Wayne Rousseau (Stretch) EMail: [email protected] 9/1/1998 formerly: [email protected] 12/96


Will of Samuel BASS, Sr. Will Book One, Northhampton Co., NC. dated 13 August 1789, proved December 1790. Will 290 p.408 abstract in "Genealogy Abstracts of Wills, Northampton Co., NC 1759-1808" by Margaret Hofmann, 1975.


This information written by Cecil Lewis Bonner and from family members known to him personally.


Information taken from 1910 Mississippi census records.


James C. Bonner's " Migration Pattern of the Descendants of Thomas Bonner," A Family History, states that Thomas and Elizabeth Duke Bonner's family Bible list William as being born 13 Sept. 1803. William is my (Cecil L. Bonner's) Great-Great Grandfather. The Pickens Co. Ala. 1870 cecsus record shows William to be 70 years old which would indicate he was born in 1800. Lucy, his wife is shown to be 65 years old in the 1870 census record. The 1880 Pickens Co. Census shows William Bonner to be 77 years old which would put him born in 1803. Lucille (Lucy) Smith is not shown in the 1880 census which indicates she was dead. In checking the Church records of Arbor Springs Baptist Ch. Pickens Co. Al., the name William Bonner is listed on a page dated 16 Nov. 1872. He was granted a letter of dismissal from the church. No mention of Lucille Smith.


This information taken from Migration pattern of Thomas Bonner, a Family History, by James C. Bonner. Some information furnished by Vincent and Rebecca Bonner of Oklahoma City, Ok.


Linnis Martin Bonner was a Charter Member of the Coalfire Baptist Church, Coalfire community, Pickens Co., Al.
