Bond 32 Bond-Batson

1850’s MS Farmers of Harrison County

In a book, Mississippi Farmers 1850-1860, by Herbert Weaver, he notes that the area had more small farmers than other parts of the state, especially the Delta. The average size of the farms was smaller, and fewer owned slaves. The property values were not high, but the farmers owned more livestock. There was a high degree of self-sufficiency in the crops planted. There were few cotton planters. The livestock was the primary source of income, which were marketed annually in Mobile or Baton Rouge. Much of the area was still frontier country. Weaver cites the journey of JFH Clairborne that traveled in the HarrCo. area in 1850. JFH Claiborne, the uncontested “father of Mississippi history,” was a planter, politician, and popular journalist. He amassed an important collection of historical papers, documents, and memorabilia upon which he largely based the first significant historical account of Mississippi. During his trip to HarrCo, he lived in the homes of the farmers, and from the records apparently stayed in the homes of John ( 32) and his son Elisha ( 16) Bond. Given the initial perception that the farmers in this area were “poor white folk”, he was quite surprised. He found them to be in excellent health, declaring that a doctor in the area would starve to death. He learned that many families had resided there for many years without a single case of “fever”, and had never heard of the cholera epidemic that had affected other regions. He was also impressed by the total lack of crime. He found that the houses were generally “crudely constructed”, but the exteriors were made pleasant by vines, shrubs and flowers. The interiors were bare, but impeccably clean. Meal times were filled with large servings of varied types of food. The people generally dressed in frontier-oriented clothing. He noted that the farmers were just starting to capitalize on the vast quantities of timber.

Family notes:
• Around 1900 there existed in Perkinston, MS an old hickory walking cane used by the Colonel. On this cane he had whittled what he called his “old family skutchins”. John Bond’s “Erth e hole” shield owned by Lt. Col. John Bond, Jr. can be see on the CD – which definitely links this family to the ancient Bonds of Cornwall in England. This symbol was a personal possession of Lt. Col. John Bond, presumeably passed down for multiple generations. The name “Bond” derives from the Viking Bonders, a class of freeholders next to Earl in rank. Many Bonders migrated to England during the Norse invasions. Eventually Bonder became Bonde, and then Bond.
• In 1/8/1814 John fought as a Captain with General Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans. He served until April 1814. After fighting in the Creek War, he mustered out at Ft. Claiborne on the Alabama River. He served another tour from 3 Jan. 1815 to 2 Apr. 1815 as a Lieutenant Colonel in the MS Militia. During the same time he represented Marion and Lawrence Co.’s in the MS Legislature. While on the way to the session where MS became a state he became ill and was forced to return home. He resigned.
• Tax records indicate that John Bond and John L Bond lived on the same property - 160 acres on Beaver Creek - until 1817. That is when John Bond, Jr. first appears on the tax rolls. The special 1816 MS census shows the NC-GA-Bond clan with related families living as neighbors for the last time.
• Now known as “Col John Bond, Jr” - he moved his family to CovCo. about 1819.
• From Col John Bond Family tree:
• “Mr. David Holmes, Governor of the MS Territory. Aft. my best respects to you, I must inform you that I do not expect to be at the convention during the term by reas/o bodily infirmities. I pursued my journey and was obliged to turn back to my respective place of abode and likewise I will inform you that I wish to resign my militia commission by reas/o bodily infirmities which render me incapable of discharging the duties of my office. I hope that the approbation of your Excellency will meet my requests.
I am yours etc.
John Bond
Lieutenant Col
David Holmes
Governor M.T.”

• During the 1830’s, after his first wife died, Col Bond moved to HancCo. in an area that became part of HarrCo. in 1841, and later became part of StnCo.
• Col Bond served again in the MS legislature 1838-1839 as a representative of HancCo.
• Col Bond purchased a house and land near the vicinity of the current cemetery for $50.00. With him at the purchase were Dave Harrison, Bill Johnson, and John Taylor.
• Other burial site may be: Bond Memorial Park, on site of Andrew Jackson Bond’s homestead, west bank of Biloxi creek.
• Adelphia’s father, Thomas Batson (No. 66), signed the marriage bond required at the time.
• Adelphia died in the childbirth of Sermantha. The complications of the birth may have been the cause of Sermantha’s “epilepsy”.
