    Claston Bond, son of Wm. And Mary Ann Bond, was born in Indiana, April 28th, 1849, and passed away in his home at Dodge Center on Sunday, August 6th, 1922.
    He was one of a family of six children, of whom three are still living. When but a child he came with his parents to Minnesota and settled on a farm which they pre-empted near New Ulm, Minn., from where they moved on account of Indian trouble to LeSeuer, Minn. Here they remained a few years and removed to West Virginia, settling at Lost Creek. Here it was that Claston experienced conversion and united with the Lost Creek Seventh-Day Baptist church in April, 1870. He was now a man grown and after a few years of service at the old home, came west with his brother, Preston, and found occupation at Long Branch, Neb., Welton and Garwin, Iowa, and Trenton, Minnesota. It was at this last place that he met and married Miss Orra L. Olin on December 7th, 1881. To this union were born two sons, Wm. Henry, and Walter Claston. One adopted daughter, Hazel E., also receiving into their home Orville Hurley, who grew to manhood esteemed as one of the family.
    About the year 1890 he came to Dodge Center, where he has since made his home, uniting with the Seventh-day Baptist church and living a consistent Christian life.
    He leaves, of his family, two brothers, Frank, of Garwin, Iowa, and Oliver of Dodge Center, one sister, Mrs. Hattie Stout of Albion, Wis., three half brothers, Edgar, William and Daniel, three half sisters, Clarabelle Overmeyer, Viola Houghton and Jennie Dutoit.
    Claston was a strong character, having strong religious convictions, holding firm faith in the Bible, with which he was quite familiar. He was found in his place at the church service until failing health prevented. His death will be a loss felt not only in his immediate family, but in the whole community as well.
