Daughter of E. Messenger and Rebecca Pagett. Wife of Charles Bonnell.

Elona's date of birth has been edited to the facts from her death certificate and not her headstone.

Discrepancies are Cemetery book says 1856, 1900 US Federal Census says, January 1852, stone reads 1853-1942 and the IL Stillbirths says date of death is 9 Oct 1942, aged 90.

The date has been changed to reflect the death certificate until further information is gleaned.
