Bonnie Mariah Rankin Morrow, is my gg-aunt, because she is the sister of my gg-grandmother, Nettie Moore Rankin King Monell.
Bonnie was the daughter of William Milton Rankin (1842-1897) & Mary Jane Moore (1846-1914), born 14 August 1892 in Tennessee, the youngest of 12 children.
In about 1910 Bonnie married William Virgil Morrow (1892-1972) in Alabama at the age of 18 and had 5 children:
1) Mary Evelyn Morrow Hicks (1919-?);
(2) Helen Marie Morrow Black (1921-?);
(3) William Howard Morrow, Sr. (1925-2009);
(4) James Herschel Morrow (1928-?) and
(5) Ruth Morrow Nicholson Bastin (1931-?).
Bonnie died at the age of 60 in Jefferson County Alabama. Her obituary appeared in the Birmingham News, Birminghma, Alabama, at page 36:
