Albert Sidney Bonar was born on November 7, 1866, and passed away Monday morning, April 1, 1946, at the Jewish Hospital, Cincinnati, at the age of 79 years, five months and 24 days.

 He was the son of the late Charles and Elizabeth Yelton Bonar.  He was the oldest of eight children and grew to young manhood on the Bonar home place, where he was born.  His father died when he was a young man and he remained on at the home to give his mother tender care and comfort for the remainder of her life.

 For the past seven years he has made his home with his nephew, Ralph Conover.

 He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Minnie Wallace of Cincinnati; four nephews, Ralph Conover of Caddo, Charles Bonar of Detroit, Michigan, Verner Wallace of Blanchester, Ohio, and Lew Wallace Jr. of Cincinnati; three nieces, Mrs. Pearl Cummins and Mrs. Margaret Miller of Cincinnati and Mrs. Ann Frazier of Cleveland, Ohio.

 "Uncle Bert," as he was called by his friends, was a progressive citizen.  He was quiet and unassuming, was ever ready to do good for some one, and to help whenever possible to lighten the burden of his fellowman.  His quiet disposition covered a kind heart, and his religion was one of works as well as faith.  Mr. Bonar joined the Pine Grove Church when a young man.

 Funeral services were held at the Pine Grove Methodist Church Wednesday, April 3,  at 2 P.M.  Rev. D. V. C. Black was in charge, assisted by Rev. E. L. Griffy.

 Two beautiful songs, "Lead Kindly Light" and "Abide With Me," were rendered by Mr. and Mrs. Howard Fossett.  Mrs. Roscoe Tucker and Frazer Norris, accompanied by Mrs. George Morris.

 The remains were laid to rest in the Lenoxburg Cemetery.  Thomas & Fossett, undertakers, were in charge.

 The pallbearers were Emery Moore, H. V. Pugh, Arnold McClanahan, George Morris, Hall Sharon and Gaylord Morris.
