Samuel Bonnett

Samuel Bonnett (1738 1789) Samuel Bonett was born in 1738 in Paoli, Chester County, Pennsylvania, the son of Jean Jacques and Anna Marie Bonett.  He married Mary Elizabeth Lorentz in Chester County, Pennsylvania in 1755.  They had twelve children.  Samuel moved to the Cedar Creek area of Frederick County, Virginia (later Hampshire County, West Virginia).  Samuel received a land patent dated 1766 for the purchase of 205 acres of land in that area.  This land was sold in 1777 and the family, with the exception of their son Henry, moved over the mountains to Harrison County, (West) Virginia.  He obtained a land grant there for 400 acres.[1]  Samuel died on December 17, 1789, from the fall of a tree.[2]
