Notes


Henry Smith Bonney (b. 1822) and family were residents of Pike County, Miss., and were involved primarily in the newspaper business. In the early 1840s, Henry Bonney established a newspaper in Holmesville, publishing the Holmesville Whig, which became the Quarto Whig and eventually the Planter's Free Press. In the late 1840s he traveled to New Orleans and worked on the New Orleans Bee and the Commercial Bulletin. In 1851 he returned to Holmesville and worked on the Southron, eventually buying up this business and establishing the Holmesville Independent, which he ran until 1862 when he joined the Holmesville Guards. In the early 1870s he lived at Osyka and Magnolia, Mississippi, and worked on two short-lived projects, the Osyka Reporter and the Eureka Centralian. He then returned to Summit and established the Summit Sentinel. His son, Nelson P. Bonney, also worked in his father's business and became the owner of the Sentinel.


Henry Bonney's wife was Evelyn French Adams (1833-1890). Their children were Nelson P. ("Buddie"), Flora Adams (1857-1936), Varina ("Rena"; 1866-1951), Ladie (d.1894), Clarence D. ("Boy"; d. 1922) and Robert M. ("Rob"). Flora eventually made her home with Will and Rena Head in Terry. For a period, Boy worked in New Orleans on the Times Democrat and later the Picayune. At one point, ca. 1892, Rob worked for Will T. Head, Sr. in Terry, where he settled.


The papers of Henry Smith Bonney and family reflect family and business concerns. Correspondence consists largely of letters between members of the Bonney family and related families, the Adams, Gibsons and the Boxleys (who were either related or had close connections with the family) concerning family and local news. There is also correspondence concerning the newspaper businesses run by members of the Bonney family. Financial, legal and business papers include receipts for subscriptions and advertisements, invoices, deeds of conveyance, inventories, notices issued by the county clerk and certificates. Writings include an autobiographical account of Henry Bonney's career, genealogical material, academic notes and poetry. Manuscript volumes consist of accounts, memorandum books and a sentiment book. Printed items and newspaper clippings include items related to family news.

**************
Vaden had these notes: Lived at Hartsville. Had a grandson in Carthage who was a doctor (per Cicero Sloan's Bible record) Rita Sloan Jenkins refers to him as "Alfred
(Archibald)"


Documented information supplied by Kelley Austin (Great, Great, Great Grandson of James Samuel Sloan) and Elizabeth Douglas (Great Granddaughter of James S. Sloan) to Angela Burks (wife of Shubal E. Burks who was the Grandson of James S. Sloan) in turn Angela gave the information to her daughter-in-law, Denell Burks (wife of Ronald Burks, Sr. who is the Great Grandson of James S. Sloan).


Early ancestors of the Sloan family settled in the fertile Tennessee River valley of North Alabama in the early 1800's.


Sloan : Scottish/Northern Irish patronymic name from the Anglicized version of the Gaelic Sluaghadhan , a diminutive form of Sluaghadh . The family emigrated from Scotland to Northern Ireland during `Great Plantation' of Ulster during the reign of King James I. Sir Hans Sloan (1660-1753) a collector of papers, manuscripts and curios, donated his holdings to the government, and they became the basis for the British Museum.


Possibly the Alfred Sloan listed in 1870 Limestone Co., AL census (#91):
Sloan, Alfred 58 farmer 400 300 TN
Jane C. 50 VA
Indiana 20 AL
Elander 16
Thomas 14
Lucy 12
Charles 10
Harrison, Pas 73 VA


and 1840 Limestone Co., AL census (p. 169): Sloan, Alfred 1 - - - 1 1 - - 1
Monita Horn thinks he married a cousin.
