Boner may be from Boughner

In researching my family tree, which is "Boughner" I found they Imbarked from Rotterdam Holland aboard two ships and disembarked at Philadelphia on 29 Sept 1753.The ships were "Two Brothers" and the "Rowland". Two more came earlier on the "Loyal Judith" landing on 3 Sept 1939. The first family arrived on 26 Aug 1735 aboard the "Oliver".Apparently they never spoke english and their names were spelled Bough Buchner,Bugner,Bougher Boner and Boughner and it wasn't until much later on the census reports that they got the names straight. The Reference is Penn German pioneers by Strassburger and Hinks, Vol 1, A publication of the original list of arrivals in Philadelphia from 1727 to 1898, by genealogical Publishing Co, Baltimore, 1966. Just thought someone might be interested.
