PHILLIP BONNORONT, whose excellent farm of ninety acres lies one-quarter mile east of Botkins, O., in a favorable section of Dinsmore township, is one of the prosperous and progressive agriculturists of this section. He was born in 1870, in Shelby county, and is a son of Jacob and Elizabeth (Bierline) Bonnoront.
Jacob Bonnoront was born in Germany and for a number of years was engaged in business at Botkins, O. He married Elizabeth Bierline, who was of German ancestry but was born in Ohio, and ten children were born to them: George, Jacob, John, Peter, Christian, Catherine, Caroline, Elizabeth, Lena and Phillip. George married Mary Linker and they live at Botkins; Jacob married Sophia Kflopestein, who is deceased; John married Mary Kies, who is deceased, and lives in Dinsmore township; Peter lives at Wapakoneta, O., and married Dora Kaylor; Christian married Emma Seitz and they live at Botkins; Catherine, who lives at Wapakoneta, is the widow of Frederick Alenbaugh; Caroline is the wife of Lawrence Thuman and they live in Auglaize county; Elizabeth, who is deceased, is survived by her husband, William Elsass; and Lena, who is the wife of William Boyer, lives in Dinsmore township.
Phillip Bonnoront attended the public schools and afterward engaged in business with his father at Botkins and later embarked in the same on his own account and continued there for nine years, after which he bought the farm on which he lives and here carries on general farming and dairying. He made all the improvements here, which are excellent, fine substantial buildings with all necessary equipments, and all his operations are conducted along modern lines and with much success.
Mr. Bonnoront married Miss Elizabeth Schuman, a daughter of William and Barbara (Grau) Schuman, and they have three children: Gaylord, Corien and Helen. Mrs. Bonnoront had the following brothers and sisters: Caroline, who married John King, lives in Dinsmore township; George, who married Minnie Kentner, lives in Auglaize county; Louis, who married Louisa Ruck, lives in Auglaize county; William, who married Louise Elsass, lives in the same county; Henry, who married Anna Cooper, lives in Auglaize county; and Amelia, who married Christian Elsass, and they also live in Auglaize county. Mr. and Mrs. Bonnoront are members of the Lutheran church, of which he is treasurer and is also a deacon in the same. Politically he is a democrat but the only public office he has accepted is membership on the school board.
