  • Notes 
    • Alvin Bonner was born in Michigan, lived with his wife’s family prior to their marriage as a farm laborer, and after marriage to Emmaline tried his luck in working in general merchandise in Medicine Creek, Nebraska. He spent much of his life in Longmont, Boulder, Colorado, where opened his own cafe, and was survived by his wife.

      Grandson, Harold H. age 4, is living with him, wife Emmaline, and daughter Maud at home in Colorado in 1910 census.

      In 1910 his occupation is Resteraunt. A search of Longmont, CO history indicates Bonner’s Cafe was a well-known landmark in the early 1900’s.

      Longmont was ravaged by influenza in 1918, and is very likely the cause of Alvin Bonner’s death since we do not find him in the 1920 Census.
