I am trying to research my wife’s maternal line which contains several Tonks.As usual, the information is scant and everyone says “I should have asked grandma before she passed away.”Here is what I have.
Going back in time from my wife’s great-grandparents:
Katherine Almeda Tonks m. George Blair Bole Katherine was born in Lucesco, Pennsylvania, USA in 1871.She died in Canton, Ohio, USA on Dec. 23, 1949.She and George had five children: George, John, Alvin, Margaret, and Helen
Katherine’s parents were Samuel Tonks and Ann Williams.Samuel was from England and Ann was from Wales according to the family. Samuel and Ann had five children: Katherine, Molly, Ann, Lily and Charlotte.
Samuel’s father was named Jonathan Tonks.
That all my mother-in-law knows.If any of this matches any information you may have, I would appreciate it.
