"No one lived after he decided ter kill 'em, no one except you, an' he'd killed some of the best witches and wizards of the age - the McKinnons, the Bones, the Prewetts - you were only a baby an' you lived."
Rubeus Hagrid to Harry Potter[src]

Mrs Bones was the mother of Amelia Bones and Edgar Bones. She was killed, along with her husband, by Voldemort during the First Wizarding War.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Mrs Bones presumably had a third child, as her granddaughter, Susan Bones, was the niece of both her daughter Amelia and her son Edgar.
