Regarding my last message I should have stated this refers to the Bonar/Bonnar family (there were 2 spellings of the surname used )

Hi Gill,

My Great Grandfather was James Bonnar, he was married to Sarah Bonnar (Cairns) and lived in Greenock. The only street i have searched is Cartsburn Street. James father was Daniel Bonnar and mother Sarah Bonnar (McPake) who possibly lived in Dellingburn Street which isnt far from Cartsburn.

One of James and Sarah's kids was my Grandmother Annie Bonnar McNab who married Donald McNab from Wemyss Bay Street Greenock. Annie sadly died during child birth in 1939 but had a brother called James Bonnar although i haven't done any research on him at the moment.

This info may be of some help if it's the same family. If i can help in any other way just let me know

Best regards

Alan
McNab and Bonnar
MacLennan
McVean
