Scope and Contents of the Materials

Jehiel Bond (1842-1939) became a minister of the Religious Society of Friends after attending Spiceland Academy, Henry County, Ind. Although he preached in meetings from eastern Illinois to eastern Ohio throughout his long career, he remained a member of the Dover Monthly Meeting, his family's meeting near Webster, Wayne County, Ind. Bond married Anna Jane Marshall (1844-1940) on Apr. 26, 1866, under the care of the Flat Rock Meeting in Henry County, Ind., Anna's grandparents' meeting. The Bond's had three children, Clara Etta, Seward Edgar, and Jennie Florence. Jehiel Bond preached his last sermon on Apr. 26, 1938, on the occasion of his and Anna's seventy-second anniversary.

The Bond Family collection contains Jehiel and Anna's correspondence, mainly from the 1860s, to and from their parents, Levi and Lydia Williams Bond, and Evan and Gulielma Bond Marshall; and Jehiel's cousin, Elizabeth Bond ("Libbie" or "Lizzie"). Recurring themes in the correspondence include the weather, crops, and personal health. There are occasional references to the Civil War and a few other national events, but the focus in mainly local and personal, mentioning births, marriages, and deaths, daily chores, trips to meeting, and visits of family and friends. The collection also contains various ministerial, financial, genealogical papers, and obituaries.

Richard B. Haworth, great grandson of Jehiel and Anna Bond, donated the collection to the Survey in 1980.
