    Franklin M. Bond, son of William and Mary Bond, was born in Ritchie county, West Virginia, October 26, 1846. He was the second child in a family of six children of which two are still living, Oliver and Harriet Stout, both of Albion, Wisconsin. While still a child, he, with his parents, removed to Minnesota and located on a farm near New Ulm, but in 1862, at the time of the Sioux Indian uprising at New Ulm, they moved for safety to St. Peter, Minnesota, and a few years later back to West Virginia, locating at Lost Creek. While living at Lost Creek the deceased professed faith in Christ and in April, 1870, was baptized into the fellowship of the Lost Creek Seventh Day Baptist church, where he retained his membership until the close of his life.
    On April 20, 1873, Mr. Bond was united in marriage with Martha Jane Chancy, of West Virginia, who departed this life April 25, 1878. To this union were born three children, Alonzo, who died at the age of sixteen years, Albert and Charles.
    On February 6, 1879, he was united in marriage with Nancy Elizabeth McGinty, of Rose county, West Virginia, who survives him. To this union were born ten children, six of whom preceded their father in death. Ellsworth S., who was a member of the aviation department during the world war, died in a hospital at Kansas City, April 19, 1918. Four girls are still living: Mrs. Elsie Sleeper, of Vancouver, British Columbia; Mrs. Hettie Libby, of Toledo; Mrs. Rose Stull, of Beaman; and Mrs. Marietta Holmes, of Waterloo.
    In 1864 the deceased enlisted in Company E, 11th regiment of Minnesota Volunteers, during the civil war, and served his country until the close of the war. He leaves to mourn his departure his wife, stepmother, six children, one brother, three half sisters, fourteen grandchildren and a large number of more distant relatives and friends.
