Notes for Mary Bonnett
Wagoner (see Pg. 56) lists 7 children for Mary Bonnett and John Wetzel . She says that " Captain John Wetzel and his family went south, along with members of the Bonnett and Six families."

Several Zane Gray novels feature Captain John Wetzel's son, Lewis Wetzel, born 1763. He was, supposedly, a legendary Indian hunter and frontier hero.
