I have downloaded the file and will enjoy looking at the pictures to see family
likenesses. I will have to dig out the picture box from under the bed and scan
in some of my line and send them to you. I don't have many, and of those, most
are of my father's generation: very few of his father and mother. I'm not sure
why my father didn't speak more about the family, but as I said on the phone,
during high school and college; I often thought there were no Bonnetts other
than his siblings. I have recently bought a cd burner and if I can find time
to learn to use it, that would be a good way to send you most of the pictures
I did see a newspaper article about my grandfather once. My uncle who lived
in South Louisiana had kept it along with a whole bunch of Huey P. Long campain
buttons. I kept one of the butttons thinking it might be worth something some
day. I should have kept the newspaper article. It explained my grandfather's
jailing in Monroe for killing a fellow in a dispute over a boat. I later asked
my youngest uncle about the incident and he said the boat had been abandoned
by a family that lived near them in Swartz. My grandfather found the boat partially
buried and unusable in a sandbar on Bayou DeSiard and restored it. Sometime
later grandfather and one of the previous owneres had words over the boat, but
my grandfather would not return it. Later, according to my uncle, he and my
father witnessed the encounter between my grandfather and this fellow(don't remember
the name). The other fellow was drunk and belligerent and armed. My grandfather
either knew he was coming or
just happed to be armed also, and in the last dispute, shot the other man killing
him. My grandfather was jailed for a year in Monroe and released. That probably
had a lot to do with my father not talking about the family. I don't remember
the dates, but suspect it happened sometime around WWI. My father was too young
for that one and too old for WWII although two uncles were involved.
Thanks for the pictures.
