WHY I AM INTERESTED IN THIS FAMILY:
Bonisteel (Bonesteel, Bonsteel) is a common name in early Sidney Township records. John Bonisteel (#10 below) married Catherine Surnberry and they came to Sidney Township in the Quinte area from Dutchess County. His brother Jacob Bonesteel (#14) who married Christian Welch settled in Dundas County, This Jacob is the very first Bonesteel to set foot in Canada. He joined the (Jessop's) Loyal Rangers in 1777 and came to Upper Canada right after 1783. Their nephew Henrich Bonisteel (#38) married Anna Rose Bush and they settled in Sidney. One of  Henrich's sons married into the Yager line that I have researched. 

Carol Stuart has done extensive research on the family and her database is at Bonisteel, Bonesteel, Bonsteel  at World Connect. Carol's email address is visible on her WorldConnect page and she welcomes new information. Thanks to Carol for being supportive of this page.

In the Sidney Minute Book  1790-1849, the name is spelled variously: Bonestale, Bonistale, Bonisteel, Bonesteel, Bonestill, Bonestal, Bonastale, Boneastale, Bonestell and Bonasteel.

Below is a 4 generation report showing part of Carol's work to date. Pioneers who came to Canada are highlighted in yellow.
