Due to the document's legibility, these other name-variations are possible:

Bonny River - Second Falls
Page 17 of the Muster Roll records
compiled by D.R. Jack, earlier described, also contains the following
who were Bonny River - Second Falls area settlers. Earlier,
Mr. Jack also included one name, John EUSTACE, 93rd. Regt. ? as part of
the muster by Lieut. Sam. BLISS; I believe this assumption is in error.
