I'm wondering if any geneology record wizards might be able to help with a mystery/brick wall.
My great great grandfather was John Bonin. He was born between 1854 and 1857 in Prussia (sometimes noted on records as Prussia, Poland or Polish Germany or Germany.) He immigrated to Wisconsin with his parents and siblings in the late 1860s.
He married my great great grandmother Anna Glomski in 1884, a daughter of another set of Prussian immigrants.
- I found John and Anna's marriage record.
- I found John, Anna and many of their children in the 1900 US Census.
- I /CANNOT/ for the life of me find John, Anna or any of the younger children that should still be living with their parents in the 1910 US Census.
- I find Anna Bonin in the 1920 US Census now listed as "Head" and noted as "Widowed."
- John and Anna's last child was born around 1906.
So, I deduced:
- John Bonin must have died between 1906 and 1920..
- I cannot find a death record, a gravestone/tombstone and, without being able to find the family in the 1910 Census, I cannot confirm/deny if he was still alive in 1910.
Can anyone perhaps find out when John Bonin died?
Can anyone find his family in the 1910 US Census?
Profile linked, but here is pertinent info.
Born - August 1957 (but have sen it noted in Censuses as low as 1854 - hard to pinpoint.)
Father: John/Johann Bonin
Mother: Johanna Bonin (Grubich)
Wife: Anna Bonin (Glomski - sometimes noted as Klumsky, Glomsky, Glumsky, etc. It gets spelled incorrectly a lot!)
