Bonney-Baker connection
Gary, upon reading the will of my 3x great-grandfather, James Baker of New York, I saw that he left a bequest to the five daughters of Benjamin Bonney. James Baker's mother was Anna Bonney, daughter of James Bonney & Anne Frazee, but I cannot determine the exact connection between James Baker and the five Bonney sisters. Do you know anything about this bequest? In addition, James Baker's father, Abraham, died intestate and a Peres Bonney was appointed administrator. Do you know which Peres Bonney this might have been? Thanks very much.

memorial # 54175582

I am Rosella Cullen, I maintain the Find a Grave memorial # 54175582 for Rachel Amanda Pumphrey Bower Flowers and I recently noticed that you added a note wanting to be contacted if I was related, I sent you an e-mail with this information in it but have not received any answer from you, so I thought I would try a message on here and I hope to hear back from you soon.

Rachel was my Great Great Grandmother, so I guess we are distant relatives as you say you are related to her. I am not sure I have any information that you would want but I am willing to share with you if I do. I have been hunting for information as to where Rachel's first husband Samuel H. Bower was buried and can't track it down so I was wondering if you knew?

My Great Grandmother was her daughter Alice Emeline Bowers Hughes and I have pictures of her that I could share.I was wondering if you had any information about where Rachel and Samuel's other children are buried as well as her children by Joseph M. Flowers, and if you might have any pictures of Rachel or any of her children?

I have searched long and hard trying to find out out where Rachel's father Joshua C. Pumphrey is buried since he doesn't seem to be buried in Rominger Cemetery in Iowa where Editha is buried, if you have any pictures of him as well I would love to see them?

I would love to here back from you in the near future.

Angela Cotrell
My husband and I just finished spending the summer searching through Parkwood Cemetery to fulfill photo requests, but could not find Angela Cotrell's marker. If you call the office for the location of her marker, I would be glad to photograph it for you. LShue

James M Pumphrey
Hi Gary, You stated that you had some info on James M Pumphrey. I believe his wife married Joe Comer after James' death. Was his wife Anna Wright and do you know anything about where she may be buried? Thanks, Comer

Orilla - should be Edith Orilla
Hi Gary,

I am descended from Ezekial through Orilla, but her name is really Edith Orilla. I don't have her birth certificate, but my information comes directly (in transcription) from her daughter Inie (Ina?) May (Bonney) Gage.

She wrote one-page biographies of her parents Edith Orilla (Bonney) and Benjamin Franklin Gage, which I have (also in transcription). I also have pictures of both of them, which I will post them on when they are digitized.

Hello. I am new to the Find a grave website and just saw your post on my mother's page. My mother is Waymuth Joyce Weeks, but I am not aware of any connection to your family. Can you please tell me why you think we are related?

You are welcome. I was delighted to find Ms. Pumphrey. The headstone would have been beautiful when it was new.
