J. C. BONHAM, superintendent of the tannery at Emporium, is a gentleman well qualified to fill his responsible position. Since he took hold of the tannery the business has been in a flourishing condition. He was born in Campbell, Steuben Co., N.Y., August 1, 1846, and is the son of Charles D. and Mary (Goodwin) Bonham, both of whom were natives of New York State, and of French and English descent, respectively. The elder Mr. Bonham was a farmer and died in 1847. The subject of this sketch was the youngest of four children, and lived with his parents in early life, attending the Steuben schools and seminary, and for a time was a clerk in a store. It was in the year 1874 that he came to Emporium, and here he worked in different capacities in the tannery until 1878, when he was given his present position. He is interested with others in the coal trade, but devotes his time to the tannery. He was married in Steuben county, N.Y., in 1869, to Miss Clarrissa, daughter of Edward and Charlotte (Wall) Jessop. She is a native of New York and of English descent. Their children are Emma L. and Guy D. Mr. and Mrs. Bonham are members of the Presbyterian Church, of which he is a trustee. He belongs to the Select Knights, A.O.U.W.
