Other 1930 Census notes:

Roy Thornton (Bonnie's husband) is found on the 1930 Houston Co, TX census, ED 26, sheet 6A, line 17 of Texas State Penitentiary prisoners.


Bonnie Parker living with mother and siblings in 1920.

I have located the 1920 census in Cement City, Dallas County, Texas.  This is family #47.  Family #46 lists Mary Krause, which I believe is Emma Krause Parker's mother.  Note - Emma says her mother was born in Louisiana.  Mary Krause was born in Louisiana according to this census record.  There are numerous Krause families in Cement City listed on this census.  Most likely they are all related.  Per this data, Bonnie's father must have died between 1912 and 1920.

Bonnie and Clyde have become a personal interest to me as my ancestors went to school with Bonnie and they lived very near them.  Any additions to this data is welcome.

I hope to add to this section as records are located.
