Is the second son of Jonathan and Charlotte Pond, natives of New England. Alfred was born on the 6th of January, 1830, in Essex County, Massachusetts. His first recollections are of the "Old Bay State," he received his education, and at the early age of nineteen years we find him among the hardy pioneers wending his way toward the land of gold. In Mr. Pond we find a real '49er, he having arrived in California in the fall of 1849, after spending about six months in making the trip across the plains. His first location was at Weaverville, Trinity County, where he engaged in mining for four months. In the spring of 1850 he came to Placer County and located at Todd's Valley, and since that time has been a permanet resident of that place. Mr. Pond has for many years been extensively engaged in mining and merchandising, and has th elargest mercantile establishment in the town. In early times he had all his goods packed upon mules from sacramento, there being no wagon road to the valley. He is interested in some good paying mines, one of which is being worked by Pond & Co. This mine has been worked since 1854, and has always paid well. He was married July 1, 1855, at Diamond Spring, El Dorado County, to Miss Olive Constable, a native of Pensylvania. Their union has been blessed with eight children, three girls and five boys.
