Just found this guestbook site and was reading through all comments when I came across Mary Kent Shockeys comment about having a picture of Jacob Deemer, who was her g,g,grand father. We are very interested in finding a copy of that picture because he is our g,g,g,grandfather. Does anyone know where we can contact her . We tried her e-mail address but it must have changed. What a great site. the photos are great
hoping to hear from someone

Hi!

My name is LOUIS BONZON, am 21 years old and am living in east Africa, Tanzania, I was born in Kilimanjaro. My dad's name is Louis Bonzon, and this is the story from him.
Our grandfather came to Tanzania in 1930's.He was from Swiss and he was having a contract with Tanzania government of building the airports. When the contract ended he continued life in Tanzania. He was living in Lushoto with my daddy doing hunting and buying minerals from local people and selling them in Nairobi.
My dady says that we have two relatives in the USA. He just knows them as Antoinette and Lucas Bonzon but we are not sure where they are in this world. Our grandfather died in 1986 and they buried him in Lushoto.
If anyone knows anything about this Bonzon I would like to hear from him. Also I welcome everyone who would like to visit Tanzania, climb the mountain Kilimanjaro and go in different national parks to see our amazing animals. For those who will come to Dar es Salaam I will offer accommodation.
Thank you

My grandfather was Walter Earl Bonzo, a son of I believe, Harrison Bonzo. My grandfather was born around 1887? and was married to Emma Giehring. He had I believe seven or eight brothers and sisters. There names were Ed, the oldest, Orrie, Emmett, Mae and I can't seem to remember the rest. My grandfather had three children, Zelda Mae, John, and Lois Naomi. Lois was my mother. This is all I have for now but will write more when I find out more info.

I am looking for information on a Jean Bonzon and his wife, Louise Besaneon, probably born in the 1840's in Switzerland. I believe in Davos or Glarus, Switzerland. They had, at least, one son, Gustave Louis Bonzon, who came to the US (I don't know how) in 1881, and resided in Highland, Madison County, Illinois. Does anyone have information on Jean and Louise?

I was born and raised in Beaver County. My connection is on my mother's side in the Steffler line. I didn't know about the Bonzo connection until about five years ago when I went to PA to visit my aunt who put me in touch with another relative who had already had the genealogy chart which someone else had compiled. I passed the information on to cousins who in turn gave me this online address.

Thanks a million to all you Bonzos out there!
I was looking for the meaning of a name : Thiven
A French couple named their son Thiven and are trying desperatly to find the name's meaning. I stumbled accross them in a forum (I answer questions about Homeopathy as I'm a Homeopath) and since they do not speak english, decided to try to help them, they have been all over the place in France, trying to find out without luck. I stumbled on your site by mistake (a very happy one) and found some answers. On behalf of this unknown couple, many many thanks!
Good luck in your quest for the Bonzos, you site is helping other non-Bonzos too!!!

Keep up the good work

My Great-grandfather was Louis B. Seifried. He was the son of Sophia B. Bonzon who was the daughter of Peter Lewis Bonzon. She married Christian Siefried.
Louis B. Siefried married Anna Elizabeth Bausch and had (I think) 3 living children Marie Seifried, Mathilda Sophia Seifried and Louis Jr. that dies as a small child.
Mathilda Sophia Seifried is my grandmother.
She married John Donald Crawford in 1931 in Pitts.
They have two living children.

He has 11 children, most of them live in California. I would like to find out more about our ancestry.

Comments:
Other people with the last name BONZO?? And all those years I had to live with that screwy name and it wasn't even correct...I was always told it was Dutch/German. But my Bonzos family never let the truth get in the way of a good story. This is my first time on this site, and I loved it! Though I am not sure what "line" I need to be looking at. My great-grandfather's name was Ernest Robert Bonzo, I think his father's name was Jake. There is a Jacob D. listed under Peter Lewis but there is nothing to click on for him. Can anyone help? (I guess I need to make some calls...)
I guess I missed the reunion, I was in Kentucky in July too, visiting my relatives (I live in California.) Please add me to your distribution, I would love to be included next time.

Did these pages help? very interesting!
Comments:
As a French teacher, I've always found the phonetic sound of "Bonzo" to be very interesting, as it sounds just like the French pronunciation of "bons eaux," which means "good waters." Because of this I always wondered if the name was French, not German as I'd been told. Thank you for your research & the information on the name "Bonzon." Does anyone know if this has a meaning, in any language, particularly German?

What needs to be added? a spelling correction in French translation
Comments:
Need to correct the spelling of the name of "Isaac Bonzon," since it's usually with 2 A's (including in the reproduced marriage certificate), yet the translator (or "inputter") changed it repeatedly to 2 S's (Issac). Not to be picky, but when researching names, spelling DOES count! :)

My 1st cousin twice removed was Napoleon Bonaparte Musgrave who married NANCY EMILY CHAPMAN daughter of JACOB CHAPMAN and MARY BONZO b. July 31, 1869. I THANK your "leader" for this information and also for keeping me on your family list, it's been fun watching all of you grow. Good luck on your family reunion, sure wish I didn't live so far away, I might be tempted. My Musgrave family has roots in Beaver PA., Scioto Ohio and New Sewickley twp., all of which I've seen on your WebSite. Thanks again for including me as your "shirt tail" cousin.

I am trying to find the correct connection to the Bonzo line. My g-g-grandmother was Margaret Lillian Powell, born in 1826. Her mother (according to my grandmother) was Elizabeth Bunzo, born around 1800 in France. However, another related researcher, thinks our line goes through Sophia Bonzo and Joseph Powell. I am still trying to figure it out...

I was born in Rochester, Beaver County, Pa on April 8, 1935
Father: Paul James Miller, born: Sept 26. 1892; Mother: Beatrice Elizabeth Powell Miller, born May 25, 1900; Father: Ira Powell, Mother: Orpha Duncan Powell, Sister: Zeta Powell Miller(Married to James A. Miller-brother of Paul Miller above)
Ira Powells brothers--Addison and Roy. Ira Powell operated a grocery store in Rochester, Pa and a relative(connection not known) lived in basement of Ira Powell's residence, named Harry Bond. One wonders if he was a distant relative who changed his name.

Are you a Bonzo too? Yahn
Did these pages help? Yes!
Comments:
I happened across your site while typing in my father's name: ERLE BRIERLY YAHN from Ellwood City, PA.
His father (my grandfather) was ERLE B. YAHN (sr.), his mother (my grandmother) was ELIZABETH NORMAN CAMPBELL YAHN.
My grandfather's brother was CLARENCE WESLEY YAHN (who died the year I was born), his father was MARTIN L. YAHN, and his mother was BELINDA CABLE YAHN.
I would very much like to know if we share any common descendants; it appears likely given the commonality of Ellwood City and certain names like Wesley and Erle.
Could you tell me whether Martin L. Yahn was a brother of any of your ancestors. Or perhaps the common thread is Clarence Yahn?
Thank you for an absolutely wonderful site! (And I really appreciate the warning about certain pages taking a long time to load!)
My husband thinks it's very funny that a Bonzo married a Yahn, as in Bedtime (Yawn) for Bonzo. Groan.

I discovered that my grandfather name was Donald Bonzo (10/27/25-04/27/89) and his wife was Edna Bonzo (02/04/30-02/01/92). He lived in Cythiana, KY. Using your photo album and another source it appears as though his father was Ernest R. Bonzo, and his father was Jacob R. Bonzo, and his father was Peter Lewis Bonzo, and his father was Jean G. Bonzon. Somebody please contact me if this is correct or if they have any further information.

I am grandson of Mary Louise Bonzo & George L Bonzo by their daughter Mary L. Bonzo Vournazos. My mother passed away in March 2001. She had a brother 17 years older than she, Earl Dudley Bonzo. (Usually spelled Earle) Uncle Earle died several years ago in Portsmouth, Ohio. For many years. my great uncle, Doctor John W. Bonzo, lived with us in Portsmouth. He was a dentist by profession. He served in the Spanish Americal War where his marksmanship and hunting skills landed him the job of Company Hunter with the responsibility of keeping the Company supplied with fresh meat. He died well past 100 years old in the VA hospital in Huntington, W. Va. My duaghter has all the family pictures and is preparing family albums. As soon as I get them back I can post pictures of both Mary L. Bonzos (mother and daughter, Uncle Earle, and Uncle Doc if you want them. My mother was a commercial artist and I have a portrait of her father which she painted as a teenager. I will copy that and post it also if you would like. Please let me know. Thanks.

Since my mother's death last year (Mildred Bonzo) my sisters and I have been going through family pictures/papers. Have found the original marriage certificate of Jean and Mary, as well as Jean's naturalization papers. Many old pictures, some tintypes, which we're in the process of preserving with archival paper and sleeves. Will share when we get them sorted. Am pleased to find out about Paul Bonzon's book. Purchased that little volume several years ago and wondered if he might be a relative. Also, speaking of books, you might be interested that shortly before Mom's death, she published her first story--at the age of 93--in Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul #2.

Comments:
I am from the Powell side and have many Powell relatives in the Burns cemetery. You will notice there a Neyman stone for "future" use between two Powell's. There was a Mrs. Bonzo that lived on (I believe it is called) Chapel Drive in North Sewickley Twp, up from Riverside schools and my mother-in-law used to do her hair. Those Neymans lived on the corner house up from the schools. I was later told by Mrs. Geiser, who lived near Geneva College, that Mrs. Bonzo was a cousin. You see, my husband did some yard work for Mrs. Geiser and that's how I discovered that I was related to her through the Burn's family. Small world, wouldn't you agree. I haven't fully explored your site but plan to at a future date.
