I believe the unknown child is John Jonas who married Ida Vick. They are buried close to William and Marie Jonas in Niles, IL. But, I do need to find the connection to bring the families together. One of the witnesses for the marriage of John and Ida Jonas  is Emma Jonas. Emma is child #3 of William and Marie, if John does fit into this family, he would be child # 1 or 2.

Do you have any Jonas relations? My research into this family has been very recent and I would love to connect with anyone that has is a relation to the above mention people.
