So is "bony" the possessive form of "kony" meaning "that one" or "that"

It is the animate form, used mainly for humans (and animals if the speaker chooses):

[Demonstrative pronouns] make a simple distinction between animate (B-class) and inanimate (K-class). In addition, there are two sets of pronouns depending on distance. Thus:

  • kesy "this (inanimate)"
  • bisy "this (animate)"
  • kony "that (inanimate)"
  • bony "that (animate)"
