The Descendants of Francis O'Keefe
Marguerite Barbara Bonnett

Francis O'Keefe was born in 1865 and died in 1894. His father may have been Lukis (or Luke) Johann O'Keeffe. During his lifetime Francis was an artist.

He married Marguerite Barbara Bonnett, the daughter of John Bonnett and Elizabeth Tone. She was born April 02, 1870 in London, Midlesex, Ontario, Canada and died February 09, 1962 in her home at Northport, Stevens Co., Washington. It's my understanding that Marguerite changed the spelling from O'Keeffe to O'Keefe after the death of Francis.
