Joy,
I am directly related to August and Lena and Robert and Hattie. My grandfather was James Boness who was raised as Robert and Hattie's son, but was really their grandson. Robert and Hattie had three? daughters Isabel (who is James' real mother, so my great-gradmother) Ivah and possibly another one. They also had a son Harry, who was killed at a young age in a car-train wreck. I do not have the rest of my "research" with me right now, but I may have a little more to share. Please contact me, you have helped me out A LOT too.

Where in Wisconsin did your Boness relatives live? My great-great grandfather Herman Boness came to Clinton, Wisconsin from Garrin, Kolberg, Pommern which is just up the road from Simoetzel a few miles. Herman's parent's were Johan and Maria (Schulz). He had a brother Ludwig/Louis and a sister Caroline. I also have some Hahn ancestors from Baldekow which is just accros the Kreiher River from Simoetzel.

Hope this is helpful

I am a descendent of Charles Boness (son of August and Lena). According to the marriage certificate for Charles Boness and Lilly Denny, Lena's maiden name is Caroline Lemerich. Charles had 3 children, 2 of whom (Sadie and Joseph) survived to adulthood. Charles is out of the picture by 1900 . . . Lilly lists herself as a widow in 1900 census in Eau Claire. Not sure if Charles died or abandoned the family. Lilly changed her name to Bonness (double n) not long afterwards and moved to live with her uncle in Milwaukee, where she died in 1919. Her son, Joseph Bonness (nee Boness) married and had 6 children, >40 grandchildren.

My ggGrandparents, Johann Martin Bonness(later Boness), from Gandelin, Kr. Kolberg-Korlin, Pomerania and Henrietta Butenhof, from Zarben, Kr. Greifenberg, near Gandelin came in 1874 to Milwaukee. These towns are not far from Kolberg. They had 5 boys. Johann and August Herman I have no records for although they were. alive in 1915. I believe thay had no children. I found several Bonness's in Treptow, Kr Greifenberg.
