This is the 1880 census record that reflects a number
of Bonjours. It may be Fredrick Amiel, who ultimately
settled in Apple River, in Illinois.
But maybe he lived in Kansas before that? There are
mismatches with the other data I have, so I think that
this family of Bonjours may not be Fredrick Amiel and
Julia Marie. Though there are similarities… Anyway,
there is a F. H. Bonjour, age 60, who is a farmer,
born in Switzerland. His wife is named as Julia A. (50)
Their children are named as F. H. (?) (24), Charkes A. (22),
Leo Paul (17), Anna E. (15), Eloise (13), Lucia A. (11),
Zelia (9). Note that the census was recorded by Alfred
Bonjour, who is no doubt related in some way, also.
