One thought on “Richard Bond & Wife”

  1. Greetings
    Under your section of Richard Bond and Wife
    You list a granddaughter Mary Bond 1796- 1880 Married to William Hinton 1785-1835 Gates NC. Do you have any additional information on William Hinton or the children of this marriage. Hopefully you can point me in the right direction.
    Her father Richard Bond 1775-1825 m Mary Blanchard ( is listed as a Patriot of the Rev war by the DAR)
    I had been in touch with a few years ago and we are cousins thru the Hays family.
    Hope to hear from you again
