Boner Family


First Generation

Joseph William Boner was born in 1747 in Lower Lusatia, Germany, and came to NC prior to 1771, in which year he married Margaret Elrod in Hope NC. He died in 1786.


Second Generation

Children of Joseph William Boner and Margaret Elrod
Joseph Boner (1773-1840) m. 1) Christine A. Hummel (ca. 1780-1826),
2) Anna Margaretha Gerber (Carver) (1792-1863)
Joshua Boner (1774-1836) m. Benigna Transou (1789-1856)
Isaac Boner (1776-1856) m. Dorothea Elizabeth Meyer (1778-1854)
Mary Boner (1779-1785)
Sarah Boner (1782-1822) m. Benjamin Hauser (1783-1857)
Alsha (Aaltje?) Boner (1787-1816) m. William Johnson (1786-1835)

A slight problem: Joseph William Boner is supposed to have died on 13 Aug 1786, according to the Forsyth County cemetery records book. Alsha Boner was not born until 12 Jul 1787. Either one of these dates is wrong, or Alsha doesn't belong in this family.


Third Generation

Theodore Boner House, Clemmons Vicinity

According to local tradition, this one-and-a-half-story log house which stands close to the Yadkin River was built by Theodore Boner. The house may, however, have been the resident of Joseph Boner who is mentioned in the Moravian Records in 1833. The Boner and Miller families lived on the east bank of the Yadkin River north of the present highway bridge beyond Clemmons. Although one chimney on the Boner house has been destroyed, the other one is a large brick chimney with a decorative cap. Some weatherboarding has fallen from the Boner house revealing neatly cut, half-dovetailed log joints. -- Courtesy of the City-County Planning Board, Winston Salem, NC
