I am looking for any information anyone may know/recall about James Bonus and Family. James was married to Matilda Deforest and had severeal children. My great grandmother, Viola has James listed as her father on her marriage certificate, but I can not find any information on her otherwise. If you know any information on Viola (Lottie) Bonus (married John William Evans). Please contact me.
