"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 21, No 34, p 135, Aug. 24, 1865. At Milton, Wis., of dysentery, Abel Bond, in the 79th year of his age. Bro. Bond was born in Cecil Co., Maryland, May 20th, 1787, and was taken, when a boy, by his parents, to Lost Creek, Va., where, in due time, he settled, and reared a numerous family, who survive him, and mourn his departure.
When in his thirty-fourth year, he made a profession of religion, and was baptized by Eld. A. R. Wells, who was on a missionary tour through that country at the time. He became an active and useful member of the Lost Creek Church, and lived an unblamable and peaceful life among his fellow citizens, and was much noted for his hospitality and hearty welcome they ever found at his home.
In 1845, Bro. Bond removed to Milton, Wisconsin, where he united with the Church, and maintained the same unblemished character, though from infirmities and age, has not been so active as formerly. His wife still survives him, though in feeble health, but looking with entire resignation for the summons to go and join him on the other side of the river.
