About Rebecca Bonham (Parke)
2. Moses Bonham, was born 1750 in Chester Co., PA; married in 1769 Rebecca Parke**; died 1782 in VA in the Revolutionary War.
- *There is no known documentary evidence that Moses and Rebecca Parke Bonham had any surviving children. However, Hazie asserts that they did have one son, Moses Bonham, Jr., who married Ann Morrison about 1804. She was reportedly an Irish immigrant. He served in the War of 1812 after which they lived in Knox County, Ohio, where he died about 1815. Hazie further attributed two sons to Moses and Ann Morrison Bonham, viz., Thomas Morrison Bonham and Rev. Moses Bonham, Jr., from whom issued a substantial group of descendents. Concomitantly, Thurtle and King stated that, "The widow of Moses Bonham, Rebecca Park Bonham, came with five sons and daughters to the Rye Valley" in Wythe County, Virginia. If true, with the exception of the putative Moses, Jr., none of these sons and daughters are known to history. Alternatively, in his work Howard E. Bonham, in referring to Moses Bonham, Jr., stated that he was reluctant to accept him as a son of Moses & Rebecca.
