Surnames: Bonhomme
Joseph and brother Emil Bonhomme family are in my direct line. I have all info on this family EXCEPT Joseph who moved to Texas. All other brothers and sisters were born in New Orleans to French parents, moved to Owensboro and Louisville, Ky. where father Jean Baptiste Bonhomme had a market/shop in the French quarter, on corner of Bourbon and St Phillipe Steets, believed this building is the one still in existence. Have not moved into Europe with this family. We have been to New Orleans twice to search and would welcome info on Joseph W. and his family. Will share info we have :) Lou Shetlon, 619 Musket Dr., Ellettsville, In 47429; 812-876-4071; louella47403@yahoo.com.

Jean Baptiste Bonhomme & Marie Mary (Miller) came from France to New Orleans. They had 7 children (2 boys possibly twins?): Paulina; Emilius J.; Mary Sibila; Regina; Jean Baptise (b. 26 apr 1874) and Joseph Walter (b. 26 Apr. 1874) & Mary Louisa. Joseph Walter Bonhome-I have two dates of birth (26 apr. 1874 in New Orleans and 07 Feb 1876 in Owensboro, KY). Joseph was the one brother who joined the circus and Emil was the "hobo". Joseph married to a Ida Mae Biggs (no info on her as yet). They had 2 sons. One died of diptheria and Signor Joseph Bonhomme was born 7 Feb. 1898. Signor died 02 Jan 1969 in Marshall, Harrison Cty., Texas. Signor married 4 times and the last wife was Ollie (Olivia or Olive?) Beatrice (Chapel-Chappel-Chappell (?)

Signor and Ollie had 3 daughters and 1 son (my friend Signor J. Bonhomme-he goes by John Bonhomme now living in West Valley City, Utah (RealOldePhart@msn.com). I've tried to go further than Jean Baptise Bonhomme-ca. 1836 in France but have not found a clue. You might want to contact John at the above email and see what he can provide to fill in any blanks you have on his family.

I will be in Owensboro, Ky on Sat. is there a possibility of making contact with you? I believe you have also done research on our Kost line. How can we set up a contact point without giving out phone #'s over the internet? LOU

My family is looking for information on our great grandmother. The story goes that she was left at the Circus and adopted by the Bonhmme family. Our roots are in Marshall, TX.
