Hi Lee and Myra,

The 1890 Baltimore City Directory shows a Herman A. Bonhage, laborer, living at 1514 N. Washington St. It is also the residence for August Bonhage, brewer. (This may not be the August Bonhage, tailor, shown in the 1865/66 BCD)

The original immigrant to Balto., Henry W. Bonhage apparently lived in Virginia before coming to Balto. in 1858. His first wife (unknown) died bef 1867. Their children were:

Frederick H. born Sep 1859 in Virginia (remember Henry was only boarding in the 1858 BCD).

Henry G., born May 1861 in Maryland

William, born 1864, in Baltimore City.

Henry's second wife was Helen V. Kase married 31 Jan 1867 in Baltimore City. They had two children in 1880 census:

Eddie Bonhage born 1872 and Kate born in 1875, both in Balto.


So, I am thinking that there may be a Virginia connection. Did they settle in Virginia first and then come to Baltimore? Where in Virginia? Maybe someone's death certificate could help. Perhaps his son, Frederick who was born in Virginia, did return there to live and subsequently moved back to Baltimore. The puzzle continues.
