    Levantia Babcock Bond was born at Jacksonville, Iowa, January 3, 1857, and died of pneumonia at her home in Nortonville, Kan., February 6, 1931, in the seventy-fifth year of her age.
    Levantia Cooper Babcock was the daughter of Joshua Babcock and Charlotte Lippincott Babcock. When she was a small child her parents moved with their family to Humboldt, Neb. Here, Levantia joined the Longbranch Seventh Day Baptist Church as a young girl. At about the age of eighteen she went to Garwin, Iowa, where she later was married to Preston Randolph Bond in November, 1877.

They came to Nortonville in 1897, where Mrs. Bond has lived ever since. Her husband preceded her in death nearly twenty-two years, passing away in June, 1909.

She could always be depended upon to share in the work and worship of the church and was regular in attendance, bringing up her family and two grandsons whom she also raised, to do likewise.

Mrs. Bond is also survived by one brother, C. C. Babcock, and one sister, Mrs. Lara [Laura] Babcock.
