Bio and Links
I have been fasinated in Geneology as a child. When I was 13 I came across letters written by my maternal great grandmother. She was enquiring about her family and where they came from. It was fascinating to read the letters and learn about the ancestors you have never met. It was then that I seem to have gotten bit by the geneology bug.

I love finding information on family and finding pictures of ancestors. It is wonderful that Findagrave has a site where we can honor our dead. Our ancetors should never be forgotten and this is why when I leave flowers on my memorial page or other memorial pages, I leave Forget Me Not Flowers. Our ancestors made us who we are today and we must appreciate that. I love leaving flowers on other memorial pages and I hope others will do the same. Everyone has a story to tell. It is only right for the living to remember the dead, even if they are not related to us. They are related to someone. It's only right to honor them.

UPDATE 11/10/13: I have noticed that pictures and information I have posted about my ancestors have been republished on sites like ancestry.com and geneologly.com. While I don't care that they are used I would like at least for those people to site where they received the information and pictures. Its like plagiarism to me. You are stealing someone's information that may have taken them years to find out and trying to get away with saying it's yours.

Update 4/5/2014

Received a phone call from someone saying that a picture that was found on find a grave was not the wife of my uncle. I have changed the information but next time instead of YELLING OVER THE FREAKIN phone can you calmly tell me. Or better yet there is a message board on find a grave that goes directly to the person that posted the pictures. All you had to do was send me a message and I would have gladly changed it. Thank you.

RE: Ernest Gray Bonham
Yes, he was.
Wanted to leave you a point of information about Simeon Smith Bonham's wife. Ramsey was the name of her second husband, Abiezar Clark RAMSEY, a Methodist Circuit Rider. They married on August 4, 1837 in Oak Hill, Butler Co., AL. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Amanda Wardlaw. I came across this information when I was doing research for our church history and used a book my husband had on hand here in our library. Our church was founded in 1851 and the people who came to this area came down what has come to be called the Georgia Road by way of Rome, GA and Blount County, TN on to Fort Payne, Ashville, Old Cahaba or Trussville, now, down to Elyton, Montgomery, and on to Mobile to take crops to be shipped. I found the entry in The FEDERAL ROAD through Gerogia, the Creek Nation, and Alabama 1806 - 1836. I know that Simeon and his brother, James Butler, came to Montgomery to practice law. The book mentioned was written by Henry DeLeon Southerland, Jr., and Jerry Elijah Brown. Ten miles south of Montgomery Bonham's was located through travel on a "wretched" road. James Stuart and a 26 year old man named Phineas Taylor Barnum were traveling by stagecoach from Columbus, GA to Montgomery where Barnum caught a steamboat for Mobile. Stuart (a Scotsman) was keeping a journal of his travels in 1820 and so was another man named Adam Hodgson who had written about the terrible condition of the road where the horses had gotten tangled in vines and bagged down in the swamps from Evan's Tavern to Bonham's. Simeon had died and Amanda was left with the running of the plantation and the stagecoach stop.These men wanted breakfast. Mrs. Bonham was in no mood to prepare breakfast for the men. Stuart described her as "the worst tempered American female" he'd met in his three years of travels in his THREENYEARS in NORTH AMERICA, 2 vols. (New York: J. & J. Harper, 1833) 2: 111, 113-114, 115. However, in his own MEMOIRS of a METHODIST CIRCUIT RIDER, Abiezer Clark found Amanda Wardlaw Bonham much the opposite and loved her greatly. She died on June 30, 1854 and in additon to her four children by Simeon, she gave Rev. Ramsey seven children. I told my own grandchildren to remember their manners because our sins will sometimes find us out and be written about by others.

Ernest Gray Bonham
Amy, this is the information I have on Roberta Tuller and her research which may be found online:
An American Family History, John Lothrop & Hannah Howse by Roberta Tuller, tuller.roberta@gmail.com

It is lengthy. Look for the George Bonham and Family History. There is an email for Mrs. Tuller and you may reach her there. I did.

Good hunting!

RE: Ernest Gray Bonham
Ernest Gray Bonham was my grandfather and Horace Edgar or Edgar Horace Bonham was my great-grandfather. I never knew either of them and Una Cross Bonham was my grandmother. They had all passed on before I was born in 1950. I have lots and lots of information and photos of Martin Luther Bonham's grave in Louisville's Middle Settlements Methodist Church Cemetery not too far outside of Maryville, TN. Look up Roberta Tuller and her work on the history of the Bonham family beginning in Masssachusettes and New Jersey. She has done some amaziing research! I thought it was very interesting that you are a Fuller. This should really surprise you, Amy, Samuel Fuller's parents died during the first year after the MAYFLOWER landed. He lived with her uncle Dr. Samuel Fuller, whose home is still standing as I understand it. Most interesting reading. I need to do lots more!
Have a good evening. Suzi

Bonhams in Birmingham, Jefferson, AL
Hi Amy,
I am the oldest daughter of Conrad Gray Bonham, son of Ernest Gray Bonham. I found your name on the "Find a Grave" site. I live in Springville, St. Clair Co., AL presently and am interested in finding out how we are related. I am aware of the Fuller relationship way back about 1620 and the marriage of Samuel Fuller to Jane Lathrop and their daughter Hannah to Hezikiah Nicholas Bonham. Looking forward to getting in touch with you.

Mae (Hall) Crayne Holland
Hi Amy,

Mae was the mother-in-law of my 2nd cousin once removed, Donald Richard Hayes. According to the obituary I found on the Browning Genealogy & Obituary Search website, Mae was first married to Edgar Crayne on 01 Dec 1929 and after his decease, she married Rev. Charles E. Holland on 03 Oct 1993. Mr. Holland preceded her in death on 19 Feb 1998.

Mae's Find-a-Grave memorial number is 64544181.

I hope this helps.

William Bonham in Jefferson Co, AL
I think you may have your William, son of Euclid and Nancy, confused with a William O. Bonham who has the same date of death in Jefferson Co. Alabama. His parents were Perry and Missouri Bonham.

Regards, MaryP

Isom Edwards 47266583
I believe I am in some way related to Isom Edwards. My gg grandfather, John Berry Edwards is listed on the 1850 census with him. John's daughter, Minerva Elizabeth "Lizzie" Edwards is my great grandmother.

I cannot tell if John is a child from perhaps a prior wife of Isom, as Isom would have been 18 when John was born in 1835 or perhaps a nephew. Mary is too young to be his mother.

If you have any information that could shed light on the parentage of John Berry Edwards in your family line, I would be most appreciative.

Yvonne
