Thank you! I have some of the info that you sent me, but not all.
My Nathaniel Robertson had a son William Robertson who married
Elizabeth Bonner. William had a brother/sister Francis. The use of
the pronoun "her" in the record with Francis?'s name is confusing. I
don't know if William's Francis was a brother or sister.
I am trying to learn if my Elizabeth Bonner Robertson, born 1793,
was related to William Bonner. He didn't have a daughter named
Elizabeth, but he had a brother Densy? (spelling is messed up on the
census) who may have been my Elizabeth's father. I am looking in
Spartenburg, Edgefield and Laurens, and now Charleston.
William, Elizabeth and their sons Nathaniel J. , Tyre, and John A.
moved to Lowndes County, Al.
Gratefully, Freda Roberson Noble
