I just came across a copy of a page from a book that was sent to my mom from one of my father's cousins (family of Richard Hall Bonham). The information regarding Richard's father is not close to the information I have documented.
"Nelson Malachi Bonham, son of Sam Bonham, was born in one of the Carolinas when a small boy he with his parents and three sisters moved to Maryland. His father died when he was young and William Bonham was made guardian over Nelson Malachi and his three sisters." p. 27
Does anyone recognize any of this information?? I have done some fairly extensive research and can't find anything to support even a part of this story.
