Marian Bohnsack Family

Marian Bohnsack, 1938
Stanley and Marian Davis

Ancestor records of Marian (Bohnsack) Davis, my maternal grandmother, are listed including biographies, descendant reports, and obituaries. Click on the family tree and a more legible image will open.

My grandmother was born on April 24, 1921, in Schapville, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, to Leo and Minnie (Deininger) Bohnsack.  In 1941, she married my grandfather Stanley Davis, a widower with two small children.  Together, they had two girls.  She died on October 13, 2011, at the Galena-Stauss Senior Care Community, in Galena, Illinois.

I’m always looking for obituaries, photos, records, so if you have something of interest, please share! I don’t have everything on this blog. A lot of my information is on Ancestry (see Lightcap-Davis Tree). I have family pictures and cemetery photos on Flickr. I’ve put lineage information on WeRelate.

    I have some pictures of William and Louisa Deininger if you are interested in receiving by email. William would be brothers with my great-great grandfather John Deininger.

      Hi Jay,

      I would LOVE pictures of William and Louisa. Thank you! If you have a picture of John or any of the other siblings, I would love that too. It’s so interesting seeing what everyone looked like. My email is

      I’ve actually been researching John and his first wife, Rosa Berger. I know that John died in 1928 and Rosa in the fall of 1884. However, I have not been able to discover the exact date of their deaths. Do you have that information?

      Also, do you know if Rosa died in childbirth? Her daughter Bertha was born in 1884 (I don’t know the date) and wondered if there was a correlation.

      Best regards,
