Pond, George M. (1860? - 27 Feb. 1896)
The Random Lake Record says: Geo. M. Pond, one of the most respected citizens of Scott, Sheboygan Co., Wis., died at his home on Feb. 27, 1896 of heart disease in the 36 year of his age. The funeral occurred Sunday from the Evangelical church of Batavia, Rev. Schleuter officiating. The internment was made in the South School house cemetery. He leaves an aged mother, one sister, Mrs. J. E. Graff of Colby, Wis., and one brother, Mr. Welber Pond of Madelia, Minn. Geo. will be greatly missed not only by his grief stricken mother to whom he had been a stay in her declining years, but also a host of friends. He was an affectionate son, a kind neighbor and a good citizen ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. He had been a great sufferer for years but bore with patience and fortitude the pain, trying to spare his mother the sorrow of knowing how much he suffered. The funeral was the largest ever held in the Evangelical church at Batavia. The bereaved friends have the sympathy of the entire community.
