    I’m just browsing, my mothers maidenname was Bonnett. there is a lot of history on the Bonnetts from the early17 amd 18 century. My family settled around Wood county and Wirt county. Samuel Bonnett brother of Lewis was supposedly responsilbe for keeping the family together after their parents , his father was Jean Jacque Bonnett who died in 1732. My grandfather was Russell Ray Bonnett. I remember him telling me we were related to the Goffs. Is their any way I could confirm this?
