    Preston Randolph Bond was born in West Virginia, to William and Mary Ann Kelley Bond, March 1, 1845, and died at his home in Nortonville, Tuesday evening, June 1, after a lingering illness of several months, caused by rheumatism and dropsy.
    Mr. Bond was one of a family of four brothers and one sister. There were also three half-brothers and four half-sisters. The deceased was the second of this large family of children to pass away. On October 20, 1876, he was married in Welton, Iowa, to Miss Levantia Babcock. Five children were born to them, two sons and three daughters, all of whom are living. Brother Bond made a public profession of religion when about twenty-five years of age at Lost Creek, West Virginia, presumably under the preaching of Elder S. H. Davis. He united with the Lost Creek Seventh-day Baptist Church. Later he with his family came west, and about eleven years ago he became a member of this church, where he has held his membership since.
    He was one of the old veterans who went to the front at the call of his country, and was a member of Company F, of the Eleventh Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. He has been called from the fast thinning ranks of the Grand Army of the Republic, to join the mighty army who will answer to the great reveille on the morning of resurrection.
    Funeral services were held at the Seventh-day Baptist Church, conducted by Rev. M. B. Kelly. M. B. K.
