I have a copy of the Bonar Genealogy transcribed by Dorothy Elizabeth Rine Brown and copyrighted in August 1969. The genealogy contains 550 pages. Does anyone know or has anyone attempted to update this book since 1969? It appears as if any descendants born after 1965 do not appear in this book.

After publishing "Bonar Genealogy" Dorothy Brown received a lot of additional information particularly on the connection to the Bonars in early day Harford and Baltimore Co., MD and on descendants in Kentucky. She intended to publish a supplement, but never did.

Charleen Spalding has collected a lot of unpublished additional information. Her e-mail address is: spalding@montana.com

Jeff Shomaker: We had contact a couple of years ago. You refer to the Bonar Genealogy book published in 1969 by Dorothy Elizabeth Rine Brown. I would like to do an update because my mother's line of Bonars was apparently not included in the book. On page 469 under Descendants of Barnet Bonar (I), Charles Bonar and Drucella Dickerson Bonar's second son Henry (Dickerson) Bonar is the source of my family. But I find nothing further about his wife or descendants in the book. Henry Dickerson Bonar was my great, great grandfather. I have the lineage down to my generation, but lack considerable information on my mother's siblings families, and I am attempting to turn it up.

To which Bonar do you trace your lineage? Is it possible Henry Dickerson Bonar, or some other branch of the family?
While I am interested in updating the genealogy book, there seem to be so many other family lines, I am not sure I want to undertake building all of that information. Have you done so by any chance, or know anybody who has?

Please let me know of your interest. Thanks, Dick Gordon

There has been another book on Bonar with more recent lines in it. The person who did it was Wilma Bonar. She's located in KY, but has no e-mail address. My sister and I just happened upon it on our trip to gather more info on our line of Bonars in KY. I have an address if you would like it. Or, it may be better if I have her contact you. I believe it's $20.00 for her book.

If you want more info, please contact me by e-mail. I'm posting this under my sisters account. Mine is justintme1@hotmail.com.

Let me know.

Re: Bonar genealogy: Donegal Ireland roots?

Surnames: Bonar from Donegal Ireland
I assume that book has its Bonar roots from Ireland. Can you tell me which county or townland it refers to?

My Bonar roots are from Lettermacaward parish, Derrylaconnell, Donegal, in that vicinity.

My great grandfather Patrick McGeehan (b 1867) was a Bonar. His mother was Mary Bonar who married Connell McGeehan. Patrick emigrated to Philadelphia around 1890. His mother came from a large Bonar family, with many descendants still living in that beautiful part of Ireland.

I saw this book many, many years ago, and as I recall 90% of the book traced the many and varied lines of the Bonar family down to the then-present.
Can you post, briefly, what is said about the first Bonars in America?
Does the book seem to be well-researched with original sources cited?
Thanks for any info you can provide all of us.
