About Hezekiah Bonham, III

The following recently published information seems to firmly establish that she was a daughter of Hezekiah Finley. Nehemiah & Eunice were probably brother & sister. Proof tha t Hezekiah Bonham is the father of Eunice, wife of James Fi nley, is found on page 106 of "Court Orders of Wythe County , Virginia 1790-1791; 1795-1810: 14 Sep 1803: "James Finle y and Unis his wife late Bonham approved by the oath of Neh emiah Bonham that Unis is the daughter of Hezekiah Bonham o f Frederick County, Virginia, and a sister of Robert Bonham , deceased, late of Baltimore." The Nehemiah Bonham who i s commonly cited as the father of Eunice Bonham, wife of Ja mes Finley, was not old enough. Rev. Nehemiah Bonham's diar y covering the years 1828-1838 has survived as a private ma nuscript in the North Carolina State Archives and may she d light on the matter. It is on 20 feet of microfilm. Nehem iah was an itinerant Presbyterian minister in western NC an d VA, eastern TN, SC, and northern GA.. In a letter from Re v. Thomas B. Stratton to Eldridge Todd Finley of Dunlow, W V dated 22 Dec 1932 he states that his grandmother's maide n name was Eunice Bonham and that her mother's name was Mar y Cordrey. I'm removing the question mark I'd placed afte r Hezekiah's name on my own WorldConnect site years ago. K . L. Dyer

Hezakiah married Mary Codrey, daughter of Unknown and Unknown.
