Frank P. Bond, attorney at law of Brownsville, Tenn., was born in Bertie County, N. C., June 27, 1851, son of Lewis T. and Penelope (Pugh) Bond, natives of the same State and county. The father removed to Haywood County in 1866, and followed agricultural pursuits here until his death, being one of the successful planters of the county. He died in 1870. Our subject was educated in the university of Virginia, and studied law at Cumberland University, of Lebanon, Tenn., graduating in 1872. He was admitted to the bar at Brownsville the same year, and has been engaged regularly in the practice ever since, having met with good and well deserved success. Mr. Bond is an unswerving Democrat in politics, and has figured prominently in the political affairs of his county and district. In 1882 he was the Democratic nominee for State senator, but was defeated, owing to the hopeless minority of the party in the district, running, however, about 1,000 votes ahead of the ticket. He was a delegate to the national convention of 1884 that nominated President Cleveland, and was a candidate for nomination to represent his district in the United States Congress in 1886. On August 2, 1877, he married Miss Mildred Bond, a daughter of James Bond. They have two living children: Minnie and Irene. Mr. Bond is recognized as an enterprising and reliable citizen and legal practitioner.
