A. A. Bonner Dead

The Famous Horseman a Victim of Pneumonia

A. A. Bonner, the horseman, died in New York on Tuesday of last week. Mr. Bonner was born in Brooklyn in 1852 and in 1866 was graduated from Clark and Fanning's Mount Washington collegiate institute. In 1887 his father made over the entire business and responsibility of publishing the New York Ledger to his three sons, A. Allen, Robert Edwin and Frederic, by whom the publication has since been conducted under the name of Robert Bonner's sons with A. Allen Bonner as treasurer and financial manager. Mr. Bonner had a stock farm and summer home near Oceanic. At his stock farm he kept and raised many highly bred horses. Among the horses that Allen Bonner has owned are the famous trotters Alcantara, Alma Mater, King Rene, Jr., and Crepe Lisse. King Rene, Jr., is considered one of the handsomest horses ever exhibited in the New York horse shows.

About two weeks ago Mr. Bonner returned from Oceanic to his home in New York, suffering with the grip, which developed into pneumonia and caused his death. He leaves a wife and two sons.
