Portrait of Isaac & Elizabeth Boner, Salem, NC, ca. 1835

The January 2007 issue of ANTIQUES magazine on p. 190 pictures a lovely double portrait, ca. 1835, of Isaac (1776-1858) and Elizabeth (1778-1854) Boner. Isaac was a hatter in Salem, NC. No other information about the couple is given in the article.

The portrait is in the collection of the Wachovia Historical Society and is currently on loan to Old Salem Museums and Gardens, Salem, NC.

This fine portrait should be made known to the Boner family. I am scanning it in case any of the descendants might like a copy, either by email or by postal mail. Someone in the Boner family ought to have it--it is too good to be missed by the family. It may not have extensive genealogy value, but it certainly does have a whole lot of family and historic value.

My email address can be found by clicking on my underlined name above. Please respond by EMAILING ME DIRECTLY and NOT by posting a reply on this genforum site, which I might not see.

If it were a portrait of a Pease couple, I'd certainly want someone to do the same for me.

Bill Pease, Lancaster, PA
