David was my Great-Grandfather.

He was the fifth of eight children born to Austin Bond and Anna WILSON. Of the eight children only three survived to adulthood.

He was married to Mary Elizabeth BUTLER on March 22nd, 1869, in Greencastle, Putnam Co., IN.

Nine children were born to this union.

David's parents moved from Arkansas to Putnam County, Indiana. In Oct 1878 he moved to Kansas settling on a homestead three miles south of Alta Vista; later he moved to that town and from there to Thomas, Oklahoma, where he lived until sickness called him away for treatment. It was while on his return trip to Colorado, taken in hope of improving his health, that he was seized with his last illness and died at his daughter's home in Wichita.

Early in life he united with the Church of Christ, and for the past several years he had been affiliated in the work of the Lord and at all times anxious to see souls born into the kingdom and the church flourish. David was one of those big jovial, whole hearted men whom everybody liked; a man to whom a suffering or needy fellow man could turn in perfect confidence that he would find relief. He was an honest man and a good neighbor. What better epitaph could he have.

Cause of death: Heart attack
