Manny’s birthday book – August 20

August 20, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  August 20th – Bonnie Everett

An Italian peasant, by a well;

Who she is, I cannot tell;

She wears a very curious cap,

Awkward, if she took a nap.

I have searched the WA indexes for Bonnie Everett, and she doesn’t show up.  I assume Bonnie Everett is related to Emily Everett (nee Foulston), first cousin of Manny’s mother, Alice (Jones) McLeod.  There are other Everett girls in the indexes, but none of them that appear to have a name that could be turned into ‘Bonnie’.  Perhaps it was a nickname.

If you think you know who Bonnie Everett is, please comment and let me know.
