Eliza Jane Bonner, daughter of Dr. John Bonner and Eliza Feribry Williams, was born 12 December 1840 in Wilcox Co., AL. She moved to Freestone Co., TX with her parents and lived in their home in Bonnerville. Eliza Jane Bonner never married and died of measles at her parents' home 29 June 1871.

From "The Ledger" Fairfield, TX July 1, 1871

Died on the 19th of June, 1871 at 20 minutes before 7 o'clock p.m., Miss Eliza Jane Bonner, daughter of Dr. John Bonner and Mrs. Eliza F. Bonner, of measles.

One by one the fairest flowers are snatched away from earth. The pure, the noble, the good, by a mysterious Providence are cut down and doomed to mingle in the dust from whence they came. In the death of Miss Bonner, society has been deprived of one of its noblest and best jewels, her aged father and mother of an affectionate and dutiful daughter, and her brothers, sisters and relatives of one whom it was their pride to love and cherish, and whose examples in all that was laudable it is pleasant for her many friends to try to imitate.

May life who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb, and did not forsake the Savior of man while he tasted the bitter cup, console and soothe the aged parents, the weeping and mourning relatives in their deep affliction and irretrievable loss.
