Hi.

I am trying to find information on a particular ancestor in my husband's family tree - Bartlett Brooke Bonnell(b. 1887 in Brooklyn, NY.)
He was the son of Anning Digby Bonnell (1842- aft. 1920)and Agatha Gertrude Dakin (1865-1903) His parents were both originally from Canada.

Bartlett (or Brook as he was often called) had a sister Gertrude (Young)(Chase)and a half sister, Muriel Isobel Wade (Randall).

Brook fought in the French Foreign Legion in WWI, losing a leg due to wounds suffered. He also won a number of prestigious medals. He was an accountant and he married Isobel L ?, sometime between 1920-1934.
By 1942, Brook and Isobel were living in Red Bank, Monmouth NJ. She died in Nov. 1979 in that same place but I have yet to find his record of death. I am assuming 1950-1965-ish

I have his French Military records but they don't have a lot of additional info that I didn't uncover before - just a better sense of the timeline of events.

Anyone have these folks in their tree? I'd love to hear from you and share info.

Thanks
Joann
