Birth: Apr. 12, 1822
Death: Apr. 14, 1903


John Bond died yesterday, April 14, 1903, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Hines, on North Church street. It will be remembered that Mr. Bond lost an arm under the railroad cars one night a few weeks ago, upon his arrival in this city. Being extremely aged, he never fully recovered from the shock; the injury eventually causing his death. The funeral will be held this afternoon at the M. E. church, and Rev. Harmon of the U. B. church will have charge of the services. Mr. Bond was born in Manchester, England, April 12, 1822, making his age 81 years and 4 days. He came to this country at the age of 19 years and two years later returned to England, where he was married to Eliza Haslem. In 1859 Mr. and Mrs. Bond moved to the United States, and made their home at what is known as Streator, IL, then only an open prairie. They finally moved to this city, and Mrs. Bond died a number of years ago, after which Mr. Bond was again married to Mrs. Nancy Roberts. A few years ago he moved with his wife to Jasper County, Indiana, where they had since resided. It was to attend to some matters of business importance that Mr. Bond came to Gibson, meeting the accident that caused his death. He leaves several sons and daughters to mourn his loss. Mr. Bond was possessed of considerable property, and was well respected by those who knew him.
