These two undated photographs of seven Bonnel brothers and sisters are from Grandma Bonnel's (Eva Whitaker) photo album. The names are written on the back of both photographs (blessings be on she who wrote those captions). Henry died in 1951, so the photos were most likely taken in the late 1940s or 1950 and most likely at the Atchison County, KS home of one of the siblings. Laura and Josie had moved to Southern California and must have been home visiting. Looking at the clothing they are wearing it is possible the occasion was the funeral of Kate Henry's husband, John, who is reported to have died in September, 1946.
