In Reply to: Re: John Bonnieman Scotland by George Freeman of 37

Hello George...I just now seen your posting..It seems we may have something in common here!..My Gr.Grandfather Alexander Bonnyman was born in Folkabers Scotland,he went to New york when he was 18 yrs. old, and married Elizabeth Eastman b.in Oxbow, New York they later moved to Ontario Canada.The name "Bonnyman" was changed to "Bonniman" by my Gr.Grandfather when his son Franklin Alexander(my Grandfather Bonniman) was born approx. 1879 in Ontario Canada, he also had a brother named "Earl" who married Jesse Ann,(my Gr.Aunt by marriage to my Gr.Uncle Earl Bonniman.. I don't know her maiden name but possibly could get it for you, she was also born in Scotland. Earl was in WW1 at Camp Hughs 1916.. I hope this helps you out here, I'll be very anxious to hear back from you, there could be a good possibility that "some" of OUR information we have could be connected in some way or another???...The "BONNIMAN" name is not a very common one...and the Obituary you posted...could also mean something to the Bonniman research..since my Gr.Grandfather moved to New York...maybe he had a brother named "John Bonniman" who later moved to the U.S.?? I maybe able to find out...As This is the very FIRST time I've seen "BONNIMAM"( My Maiden name!!) spelled the SAME way as MINE!!!..Could you please send any information you may have about the "Bonniman's" and I will do the same I would really appreciate it, maybe we could work together on this "MYSTERY"!!As I can find very 'little" about my Gr.Grandfather and Gr.Grandmother ...Hope to hear back soon...
Best Wishes...Pat Bonniman/Bonnyman
