James Bonner

M
      The family tradition is that the family is of Scotch-Irish ancestry though nothing is known of the family before arriving in America. The supposition is based on some early references to the family among the Scots-Irish and their membership in the Presbyterian church for many generations.

In the "Surnames of County Donegal" by Arthur Spears that appeared in "Irish Roots Magazine" Issue 2, 1995 pages 27-29 there is this information about the surnames Crampsey, Bonner. "Crampsey, Crashy, Boner, Bonar, Bonnar are names which, when totalled, are quite high on the list of County Donegal names. The names are particularly evocative of the county. McLysaght gives these names little attention and then only under Kneafsey, a form unknown in Donegal. McCrampsey, O'Crawsey are also believed absent today. Formerly, the name approximating to these forms was usually spelled Crampsey in Donegal, but by far the more usual was Bonner or Boner and is so today. On the face of it, the Gaelic Cnamsighe seems to connote something like "Boneman" in English (cnamh, accent over the a, is the Irish for 'bone'). The user of Bonner especially, but also to some degree Boner, as anglicised, was probably to avoid the suggestion that the holders might be of the knacker trade. It is suggested that the name may derive from an old Irish word for priest 'Cruimthir' the suffix 'thir' being easily interchangeable with 'sighe'. The alternative derivation seems doubtful unless it has some reference to a skeletal ancestor, hardly someone to be proud of.

In Ulster the Bonner, Bonnar forms are most commonley met with. Besides the Irishowen part of County Donegal, it is concentrated in Derry and in Counties Londonderry and Tyrone. Dublin has one Cramsie in the telephone directory and a small number of Boner/Bonners. The family are apparently not given to roving. No doubt they emigrated to America in the early seventeenth century as did many others and the name will appear there in any of its several forms including Neaphsey or O'Crawsey as well.

Greg Coffey (Greg_Coffey@juno.com) quotes a letter from Aunt Mattie saying "James Bonner bought land of one James Patterson in 1768--of Firmnaugh Township, Mifflin Co., PA James and Martha Bonner deeded one and six-tenths acres of their land to the Associate Reformed Church of Firmnaugh to be used to the Church purposes and a God's acre forever. Here lies the bodies of James
and Anne Reid, James and Martha Bonner, and also John Bonner and other relatives. All his children settled at Chillicothe, Ohio about 1813--with the exception of John, who settled at Dayton, Ohio. Of the children, Nathaniel, John and Jane kept up a fellowship as long as life
lasted."1
James was listed as the head of a family on the 1790 Census at Fermaanagh, Juniata Township, Mifflin Co., PA.

John Bonner

M, d. circa January 1785
     John Bonner was the son of James Bonner. He married Sarah Walker at Cumberland Co., PA, circa 1778. John died circa January 1785 Deborah Coffey says died 1795 in Mifflin, PA. at Cumberland Co., PA. Deborah Coffey says died 1795 in Mifflin, PA.. John's will was probated. D244-245The notice of the sale of his property appears in "The Carlisle Gazette & The Western Repository of Knowledge" on Wednesday, 17 September, 1794: "To be sold agreeable to will of John Bonner, deed, plantation on which he lived, 300 a., in Mifflin Co, Milford Co., Midland Township., adj. river Juniata, 1/2 mile from George Patterson's Mill. James Bonner, near the premises, James Bigham & William Bigham, Lancaster Co., Chestnut Level, Ex'rs."1
     John immigrated, on 6 February 1768. Destination: at Newcastle, PA. He bought property at Patterson's Landimg, across the river, in 1773.2,3 He made a will on 13 November 1784. D244-245The will names his wife Sarah, his sons David and William, his daughters Judith and Margaret, his sister Mary and (her daughter?) Sarah. The executors are his bros. James Bonner, James Bigham, and William Bigham. The witnesses were Charles Cunningham, Samuel Patterson, and James Patterson. John will his land in equal shares to his wife Sarah, and his five children.

Because his son James died before John, his estate was administered by his son-in-law Thomas Ghormley, the husband of Judith Bonner. His heirs received the transfer of Thomas Ghormley land in Walker Township, Juniata Co., for 67 cents. They in turn sold the land to the heirs of Samuel Custer..1 He was a Revolutionary War soldier. After his death his land went to his wife and children. In 1802 the son David sold hjis interest in the land to his sister Judith (now Ghormley) and his sister Margaret (now Curren). Judith and Margaret divided the land 111 March 1811 - Judith getting 122 Acreas and allowance and Margaret getting 159 acres and allowance. The widow's portion remained in Margaret's tract. Sarah, the widow, and her daughter Margaret sold their tract 16 May 1811 to Philip Kilmer and in 1879 this was the farm of Peter Kilmer. Judith sold her portion 23 Apr 1818 to Michael Brandt and this (in 1879) was the farm of Mrs. Hartman and W. Turbett and part of the A.J. Turbett farm. W. Turbett resided in the stone home built by Judith and Thomas Ghormley. The stream of water passing through these tracts is known as Bonner's run.

On 24 Jun 1820 the family transferred from the Hop Run church to Greenfield. In 1826 the members were 1) Nathaniel the son of John, brother of Judith Ghormley, 2) Jane the wife of Nathaniel and the audghter of Thomas and Judith Ghormley, 3) Martha the daughter of John, ister of Judith, and the wife of William Stewart, 4) Jane the daughter of John and sister of Judith, and 5) Judith the daughter of Nathaniel and Jane.3
