Grove. She was left a widow July 3d, 1846.
In 1851 she married Eli POND, of Davis Co., Iowa, and removed to his home.
To them were born nine children, three of whom, Levi, Willard and Belle, wife
of Luther SCOTT, survive. They removed to Decatur Co. in 1855. She again
became a widow in April 1880. Many years ago she united with the Christian
denomination and for the last five years of her life has been in the communion of
The Christian Union body. After more than nine weeks of sickness, in which she
was wonderfully sustained and cheered by divine grace she departed this life

were interred in Van Wert cemetery, the funeral services being conducted by
Robert BEER, pastor of the Garden Grove Presbyterian church.
