August 5, 1897
Dr. Alfred O. Bond was born in Warren Co., O., and died in Dayton, July 31, 1897. When but five months old, with his parents, he came to Montgomery Co., where the greater part of his life was spent. He chose for his life work the practice of medicine. To this he turned his attention, gave his time and the best efforts of his life. In 1853 he graduated in Medicine and Surgery at the University of New York, in New York City. He began the practice of his chosen profession in Brandt, near his old home, where he was eminently successful. In 1863 he removed to Dayton, where he continued to practice with the same marked success until December, 1894, when he received a fall on the ice, sustaining a fracture of the hip, which disabled him from further active usefulness in his profession. His heart was his work. He took great, and even unusual interest in his patients, striving always to relieve their suffering and bring them comfort. Ever kind, tender-hearted, and sympathetic, yet, when necessary, he was remarkably strong in the discharge of duty. Honesty and integrity were strong characteristics of his life. Disregarding idle speculation and rumor, he sought to know the truth of every subject, and act accordingly. The funeral was held at the Bethel Reformed Church, Monday, Aug. 2nd.
