Missing Man Found Dead in Motorboat
Harborton, Va. - The body of Lynwood Bonniwell, 43, was found yesterday in his outboard motorboat two miles north of Nandua Creek on the Eastern Shore. Bonniwell, missing since Tuesday,. had been the object of a search early Wednesday. He had left his home in Harborton to go oystering at Scarborough Island. A Coast Guard amphibious plane from Elizabeth City, NC spotted Bonniwell's boat adrift five miles southwest of Pungoteague Creek. Dr. JL DeCormis, coroner, ruled the death the results of over exertion and exposure. He was the son of Grace Smith Bonniwell and the late George A Bonniwell of Harborton. Besides his mother he is survived by three sons, Newell, Philip and Benny Bonniwell of California; three sisters, Mrs. Kathleen Albrecht of Fuchlid, O, Mrs Hartense Poynter and Mrs. Gracie Ann Bonniwell of Felton, Del., three brothers, William and George A Bonniwell Jr., of Harrington and Milfred Bonniwell of Exmore, and grandmother, Mrs. L.N. Hornsby of Harborton, and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2pm in the Williams Funeral Home in Onancock with Rev. Robert Painter, pastor of the Evergreen Methodist Church of which he was a member, officiating. Interment will be in the Mt. Holly Cemetery in Onancock.
