Julia A. George, Widow of Capt. Elijah Bonner

I’ve been looking for this for awhile. It’s a death notice for Julia A. George, printed in The Baltimore Sun in April of 1913. She lived on Bolton St. in Baltimore. Thankfully someone posted it and others on a Maryland genealogy site.

BONNER-On April 24, 1913 JULIA A., aged 78 years old, widow of Capt. Elijah Bonner. Funeral will take place from her late residence, No. 2003 Bolton St. on Sunday at 2.p.m. Interment in Baltimore Cemetery.”

Julia A. George is listed on the 1850 census living in the city of Baltimore with my ancestor Wesley Calvin George and his mother Elizabeth. She is Wesley’s cousin. Elizabeth is her aunt. Living with them is Julia’s future husband, Elijah Bonner. At this point he’s working as a waterman, but will rise through the ranks, becoming a captain.
