Boner PA>TN abt 1805 - any info please!

The family here in Tennessee has been looking for quite some time to find where our branch of the Boner/Bonars come from.
Here is all the distant family info. that we have:

In 1833, at Davidson Co., TN, Henry Bonar applied for pension for Revolutionary War service, stating that he enlisted in York
City, PA, and served the PA Line. His stated age was 78, meaning he was born around 1754-55. I have not been able to find
his name on any muster rolls to confirm this.
In 1800 there is a Henry Boner found in the Manheim, Lancaster Co.,PA census.

My Henry moved on to Tennessee in early 1800, supposedly around 1805. The family doesn't know his wife's name.

One of Henry's sons ( if there were more we don't know ) was Henry II Boner.

Henry II married Margaret Huggins in Davidson Co., TN. Hopefully his children's names sound familiar to a researcher they
were named as follows:
James, John Henry, Mary Ann Jane, Elizabeth (Aunt Puss), and Christopher Stump (Christopher is named after an early Mid.
TN settler).

We have been trying to find where our Boner/Bonar family hails from for years to no avail.
Thoughout our Tennessee history the name has been spelled variously as Bonar, Boner, and Bonner
Hopefully one of you can find a connection, or point us in the right direction.

God bless and I do hope to hear from you soon!!!
