I have two original carte de visite photographs of “S. P. Pond” and “Emma Pond”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo of S. P. Pond was taken about 1885, and he looks to be about age 25.
The photo of Emma Pond was taken in St. Paris (Champaign Co.) OH, in about 1880, and Emma looks to be about 3 years old.
I found both Emma and “S. P.” as children of Abel Eldridge Pond and Sarah M (Brelsford) Pond – according to One World Tree.Samuel Perry Pond was born 20 Jun 1861 in Jackson (Champaign Co.) OH, and his sister Emma, was born 29 Apr 1876 in Jackson also.In the 1870 Champaign Co. census, Samuel was called “Perry”.Samuel Perry lived in later years in Logan Co., OH and Allen Co., IN.In the 1900 census for Champaign Co., OH, Emma was living with her parents, was single and a music teacher.
