Birth: Dec. 14, 1714
Quebec, Canada
Death: Aug. 2, 1784


Charles Bonneau, a Revolutionary War patriot, was born on Dec. 14, 1714 in Quebec, New France (now Canada). He is thought to be the son of Jean Baptiste Bonneau (1682- ?) and Marie Madeline Moreau (1692-1735).

On July 13, 1787 Vincennes became a part of the newly formed Northwest Territory. On July 4, 1800 Vincennes was located in what was then called Indiana Territory. Indiana was not granted statehood until Nov. 7, 1816.

On July 13, 1757 Charles married Genevieve Charlotte Dudevoir (1732-1773) in Ft. Detroit, then a part of New France. They are thought to have had at least eight children.

Genevieve died in 1773 about the age of 41. She is thought to be buried in the Old Cathedral Cemetery in Vincennes in one of the over 4,000 unmarked graves on that site.

Charles died on Aug. 2, 1874 in Ft. Vincennes which at that time belonged to Great Britain. He was 69 years of age. He too, was buried in The Old Cathedral Cemetery in Vencennes. His name appears on an old list of patriots buried there.

His daughter, Anne Jeanettee "Janne" Dubois (1770-1800), is also buried there and has one of the few readable markers. Her husband, Toussaint Dubois (1751-1816), is buried there as well, unfortunately in one of the many unmarked graves in this old and historic cemetery.
