The Hull Family
Thank you, Joyce. You've been busy! This family has been difficult for me to track due to unmarked graves and my lack of access to newspaper records. My relative, Malinda Bonham, married Walton W. Hull. She helped with the inventories of some of her siblings probates. Her handwriting is incredibly beautiful! You've helped tremendously in honoring them with memorial photos and information.

Thank you so much, Joyce. I have been having major computer problems & I've been occupied with joining the DAR so I'm a little behind on my messages right now. I appreciate all of your hard work & look forward to seeing what else you find.

RE: Amanda Kelley
How can that be corrected? I've seen it, and wanted it corrected for years. Also, Amanda's last name is spelled "Kelley", like her father's name. I've never found a grave for him in Hancock County, but I firmly believe he lived with Nancy until he died. She used her Bonham surname late in life, I suppose because of the number of children she had with Johnson Bonham. I've searched the online newspapers at, but they do not have newspapers from Findlay, OH. That's a real burden for me since I have SO MANY relatives there.

Amanda Kelley
Thank you for finding Amanda. I have looked for her for 20 years, without success. She was the only child born to Nancy (nee) Oliver Bonham and her second husband, Mr Kelley. She lived with her 1/2 brother, Isaac Bonham and was a caregiver for many of her 1/2 siblings. I believe she had angel wings! Thank you for honoring her. Hows did you obtain the information to locate her?

RE: Zachariah Bonham Family
Yes, Zachariah Bonham remarried, but I don't recall her name (maybe Katie Koontz). Fred Fishell Bonham, was murdered by his sister, Blanche Bonham Halsey. It was widely covered in the newspapers at the time. He was an invalid at the time, and it is speculated that she was weary of caring for him. Shot him in bed, in the back of the head with a shotgun. She was convicted and incarcerated. Since Blanche was the last to die, I wonder who took care of having her name and dates placed on the monument?

Zachariah Bonham Family
I want to thank you for photographing and posting the grave marker for my Bonham family relatives. This helps me to make sense of some of the things that happened to them. Theirs was a sad story. It is certainly true that a picture is worth a 1000 words. Peggy O'Leary

RE: Spitler
You are correct. My "thank You" post for the Spitler grave was intended for someone else!
For over 20 years, as long as I've been researching our family history, I've wondered where Edward Walton Bonham's wife Anna Neuman Dillinger was buried. I ordered the genealogy book for Maple Grove cemeteries, but couldn't find her in there. A picture tells the whole did you discover the name of her 2nd husband? All I ever found was his last name, Dillinger. (I don't have access to court records in Texas.) I so appreciate the family plot information, as well. I didn't realize that there was an unmarked grave for Violet Bonham Plank, which answers another mystery for my research! Thanks to you!

Thank you so much, Joyce. Her son was married to my great-aunt. I assumed that her husband, Philip, would be on the same monument so I don't know if he has a separate monument.
