JAMES F. BOND was born in Owen County, Ky., March 30, 1832, and is a son of Robert and Elizabeth (Sale) Bond, natives of Virginia. Robert Bond, who was a farmer, was brought to Kentucky by his father, John Bond, and his wife, Mary (Sale) Bond, when he was a boy. John Bond immigrated to Kentucky at a very early day, when that State was full of Indians. Elizabeth (Sale) Bond was a daughter of Robert and Jennie (Hoard) Sale, a family of high repute. James F. Bond received a good practical education in the common schools of his native county. He has made farming his chief occupation, and now owns a farm of 500 acres, which he values at $15,000. In 1860 Mr. Bond married Miss L. K. Tomlinson, and three children have blessed their union: William, a physician at Sparta, Ky., James and Florence. Politically Mr. Bond is a Democrat.
