|Death: ||Aug. 23, 1936|
According to Earlene, a great great niece of Bill Bonner, William "Bill" Bonner was born in Warren County, Tennessee to Miles and Clarissa Bonner. He was 4 years old on the 1860 census, so his tombstone doesn't reflect his correct birth date (Aug 1855 on 1900 census). He was the husband of Drucilla Hutcheson, sister of Sidney Hutcheson. Dru died in the early 1900's.
A scan of the brief obituary for P. R. Bonner (obviously Bill Bonner from the information included) is shown with the pictures on this page. Earlene indicated that she had no idea as to where the initials in the obituary came from. She said that according to one of his granddaughters (one of Jack Bonner's daughters) that she met in 2007, his name was William Isaac Bonner. He was W. I. Bonner on the 1900 census as he was on his marriage record to Drucilla Hutcheson in 1893. It should also be pointed out that the obituary furthers the proof that the date on the gravestone is incorrect. Since he died in 1936 at 81 years of age, that would also reflect a birth year of 1855.
