COL. DANIEL H. POND is one of the interest-

ing men and valuable citizens of Cleveland.

He is one of the few civilians who, during the

peaceful times of the last generation, have

taken pains and interest to equip themselves

with a thorough technical and practical knowl-

edge of military affairs, and his title is by no

means an honorary one, but stands for !J,ctive

service in the regular army, in the Ohio Na-

tional Guard and in the new National army.

Colonel Pond is also prominent in business

affairs, and for many years has been actively

and officially identified with The Economy

Building & Loan Company, besides various

other business and social organizations.

Colonel Pond was 'born at Petroleum Center,

Pennsylvania, March 11, 1870, son of Henry

H. and Mary Maria (Gates) Pond, and is a

descendant of one of the early New England

families, the genealogical record being traced

as follows:

The first official record of the Pond family

is found in the archives of Windsor, Connecti-

cut, wherein is recorded the fact that one

Samuel Pond was married November 14, 1642.

There is no official record that the Samuel

Pond of the second generation, who was born

on March 4, 1648, was the son of the first

Samuel Pond,but historians and biographers

are of the opinion that the second Samuel Pond

was the son of the first Samuel Pond as above

noted.

First Generation-Samuel Pond, married at

Windsor, Connecticut, Novem'ber 14, 1642.

Second Generation-Samuel Pond, born

March 4, 1648, took the Freeman's oath at

Hartford, Connecticut, in 1672, as from Bran-

ford, Connecticut.

Fourth Generation-Philip Pond, born June

15, 1706, at Branford, Connecticut. The

Fifth Generation-Dan Pond, born :March 4,

1726, at Branford, Connecticut, moved to

Poultny, Rutland County, Vermont, where he

settled on what is known to this day as Ponds

Hill and from this sire and from Ponds Hill

is where the Pond family got a real start, as

fifteen children were born on Ponds Hill.

Sixth Generation-Abel Pond, born October

27, 1753, settled in Lennox, Berkshire County,

Massachusetts. He died in Poultny Flats,

Rutland County, Vermont. A Revolutionary

war soldier.

Seventh Generation-Joel Anders, born

May 9, 1807, at Poultny, Vermont, moved to

Randolph, Crawford County, Pennsylvania,

thence to Townville, Pennsylvania, where he

died.

Eighth Generation-Henry H. Pond, born

June 6, 1844, at Steuben, Crawford County,

Pennsylvania, a practitioner physician at

Meadville, Pennsylvania, where he died Febru-

ary 24, 1877. Married Mary Maria Gates,

September 9, 1867.

FIRST GENERATION.

1 We have not been able to ascertain the parentage of Samuel

Pond, nor the date of his arrival in America, nor the date of his

first appearance in Connecticut. It appears that he was married in

Windsor, Conn., Nov. 14th, 1642, to Sarah —* His wife's family

name is not known to the compiler. He died March 14th, 1654.

In the struggles, incident to the first settlement of a new country,

and in the short period in which he lived, he had not accumulated a

large property, (62 acres of land only,) but what he had accumulated,

over and above the support of his family, was left them free

from incumbrance. Here follows the inventory of his estate, as

copied from the "Original Records in the State House, at Hartford,

Ct.," all in uye olden style:'''
