Louis Amedé de Büren would leave Switzerland in June of 1829 and arrive in Madison, Indiana later that year. He bought a tract of land and settled down to farm. Not soon after his arrival in Madison he would marry in 1830 a fellow Swiss emigrant, Anna Bühler from La Neuveville on the Lake of Biel. Anna would give Louis seven children, but would die tragically in the delivery of twins in 1842. Louis would sell the farm in 1848 and would move onto Decatur, Tennessee.
I am looking for information regarding Rev. Edward Eden Bonta, b. 18 Sept. 1844, probably in Jefferson County, Indiana. He married Elizabeth Mathis (or Matthews) 21 Sept. 1865 in Madison County, Indiana. He died 25 Aug. 1908, probably in Ireland, Dubois County, Indiana. He is buried at the Shiloh Pioneer Cemetery in Ireland, Dubois County, Indiana.
I am searching for his parents and/or any siblings.
Before the Madison Court House burned in May 2009, I was able to look up some information about my family. I loved lifting the heavy volumes and turning the extra-large pages and finding my ancestors names, handwritten no less there in the lines of probate and property transfer history.
