According to Online Family Trees, this is Nancy Elizabeth "Betty" Cockrell, daughter of Thomas and Sarah Collie Cockrell. Dr. E. Russ Williams in his book "Founding Families of the Ouachita Valley" disagrees, and states she was the daughter of John and Sarah D. Dickerson Cockrell. She married William Franklin Bonnette, probably in Jackson parish around 1875. According to Dr. Williams' book, they were the parents of John Thomas, William, Ira Dew, Eleanor and Novie. The 1900 Census shows John T., Willie E., Arnie, and Elmer I. Nancy states she was the mother of nine, but only 5 are still living. Her birthdate was listed as "Un[known]".
An 11 year old son Ira D. is on the 1910 census, and by that time Nancy states she was the mother of 9 and only 4 are alive.
