  • Name Samuel* Bonham 
    • many many DNA matches who are descended from the Runyons, which is a strong case that Samuel is indeed son of Hezekiah Jr. and Martha Runyon. However, guess it's possible there could be some other connection to explain these matches; but for now looks promising.

    Notes 
    • *Hazie attributed four additional children to Samuel, Jr. and Ruth Bowyer Bonham, viz., Samuel, III; Peter; Benjamin; and Elam. Of these, Peter was almost certainly the son of Amariah Bonham and, although various civil records attest to the existence of the others, there is no substantial evidence of their parentage. Even so, it is probable, even likely, that at least some of them are descended from Nicholas Bonham. Nevertheless, Howard Bonham concluded that Samuel and Ruth Bonham had no children with the possible exception of Catherine, who died as a young child.
