He was reared on a farm, and during his life gave his attention to agricultural pursuits. He was reared on a farm, and during his life gave his attention to agricultural pursuits. He was a man of quiet and unpretending ways and was held in high esteem and respect by the community in which he humbly toiled for many years. He responded to the country's call for troops for the Mexican war, and also served a year in the late war in the Thirty-second Illinois Volunteer Infantry. December 11, 1850, he married Elizabeth A. Gill, a daughter of Joseph and Maria (Campbell) Gill. She still survives him, as do also three of their six children William E., Michael A. and Francis M. Mr. Bond died August 23, 1874, at which time his farm consisted of 240 acres. Although departed, his record is with us and it is resplendent with achievements which, although humble and unassuming in their nature, are, nevertheless, noble and grand, reflecting great credit to the worth of his character, which was at all time pure and undefiled.
