Bond, Edward A., one of Watertown's most prominent and thoroughgoing business men, was born in Dexter, Mich., April 22, 1839. His first employment after completing his schooling was in the engineers corps on the construction of the U., S. & S. V. R. R. (now the D., L. & W.), where he remained until 1869, when he was appointed assistant engineer on the Chicago, Pekin and Southwestern Railroad, remaining in their employ until the following spring and then returned to the D., L. & W. He remained with the road until it was extended to Binghamton, when he resigned to accept an offer made by the Utica and Black River Railroad as resident engineer, which position he held until the resignation of the chief engineer, when he was made chief engineer of that road. In 1886 he became engineer and general superintendent of the Carthage and Adirondack Railroad, where he remained until 1889, when he formed a copartnership with Mr. Hinds under the firm name of Hinds & Bond and engaged in the securing of franchises and the construction of water works. They continued together until 1896, when the firm dissolved and Mr. Bond has since then conducted the business alone, retaining all the interests of the firm of Hinds & Bond in the several water works in which the firm was interested. He is now president of the Barrie and Napanee water works of Ontario, Canada. November 11, 1873, he married Gertrude, daughter of Abraham and Aurelia Hollenback of Clayton, N. Y.
