Album 4 - Margaret (Bond) Pierce

 

 

The Margaret and Julia Bond Albums:

 

     These photos were gathered throughout their lifetimes and put in albums by two daughters of Robert Lewis Bond (1836-1916) and Martha Jane Ramey (1850-1907), who lived in Carrollton, Carroll Co., KY.   Five such albums were assembled by Margaret Ramey (Bond) Pierce (1874-1970), wife of Norval Lee Pierce (1871-1951) and Julia Frances (Bond) Spalding (1877-1968), wife of Okey Wallace Spalding (1872-1956).  Additionally, included here is a miscellaneous collection of photographs, scans and digital images captured from the world wide web that have been used for identification or to clarify the identification of the album subjects.

Album 5:    Julia Frances (Bond) Spalding
Miscellaneous:    Loose photos or unassociated images used for identification or clarification

 

Photography:

     Photos were selected from each album for family interest and to eliminate duplicates, of which there were more than a few.  The photos were copied at a time when digital scanners were too expensive for home use, so they were first photographed.  The selected photos were placed under glass and photographed using four floodlamps at approximately 45 degrees to the lens to minimize glare.  The film was Kodak Plus-X, developed in Kodak D-19.  The resulting negatives were sent to Eastman Kodak to be scanned at 2000dpi and placed on a CD.  The highest resolution image (of five) of each exposure was then stripped from the CD and stored as a .jpg.  Thumbnails are shown below, each having a link to the full resolution image.

      Many albums have two parts, each having numbering from 0001, owing to the limited storage capacity of the original CDs for the images.  On this website, the second part may or may not be shown, or only a few images of the second part may be shown.  This is because the second parts contain photographs of living persons. 

     Many of the snapshots in the albums may have been taken using a No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak roll film camera, which was part of Margaret (Bond) Pierce's estate.  It produced negatives 35 inches in size.  A large number of snapshots in these albums are that size.

 

 

Identification:

     Each photograph in the albums has been numbered sequentially, using the form: ALBUM4-PT1 001.  They are in chronological order, with a few exceptions.  Generally, each photo has some kind of caption with it in the albums 1-5; this is quoted immediately following the photo number.  Captions may contain the subject(s) present in a photograph and/or the locale and/or date/year.  If a person is not identified by its caption, they are often identified in another photograph or photographs, which is then included in the subject discussion.

 

Cast of Characters:

 

    Margaret Ramey Bond (1874 - 1970), was the daughter of Robert Lewis Bond (1836 - 1916) and Martha Jane "Mattie" Ramey (1850 - 1907).  She lived with her three sisters, Maynie Laura Bond (1872 - 1957), Julia Frances Bond (1877 - 1968), James Dorothy "Dot" [or "Tot"] Bond, and one brother, Richard Frank (who was called Frank or R. Frank) Bond (1881 - 1948).  While growing up, the family first lived at a farm called Clearview, in the Sharon neighborhood on Four Mile Road about five miles south of Ghent, Carroll County, Kentucky; this house was abandoned but still standing as late as 1997.  Later, they moved to a larger house called Smoke Tree, on the Ohio River bank, about one mile east of Carrollton, Carroll County, Kentucky; this house burned to the ground in the early 1900's.  After his children left home and his wife died, Robert L. Bond moved to a smaller house called Mapleview in Sanders, Carroll County, Kentucky; this house is still occupied.  About 1910, Margaret moved to New Orleans, living with her brother Frank.  She married, in 1912, Norval Lee Pierce (1871 - 1951), son of James Perry Pierce (1841 - 1916) and Emeline F. Rolston (1840 - 1895) of Marion, Crittenden County, Kentucky.  They first lived in Marseilles, Illinois, where Norval was the manager of a General Roofing Company (now known as Certainteed) Plant.  Almost immediately, they started making plans to return to farming, purchasing 647 acres just south of Woodville, Wilkenson County, Mississippi, that they called The Plantation, despite the fact that the "big house" appears to be a three-room clapboard shack, where both of their children were born.  In 1919, they sold out of Woodville, and moved to Tupelo, Lee County, Mississippi, first on an 80-acre farm west of town, and about 1925, to a town lot in Tupelo.  By 1930, they lived in Chicago, flying high in real estate speculation.  Their oldest, Norval Lee Pierce, Jr. died in April of 1931 from a ruptured spleen, the unexpected effect of a boyish fight, they were running a sandwich shop (more like a hot-dog stand) around the corner from their residence.  By the winter of 1932/33, they gave in to the depression and moved onto "Frankelva", the 69-acre summer or vacation property/farm just south of Natchitoches, Louisiana owned by Frank and Elva Bond, Margaret's brother and sister-in-law.  Initially, Norval fixed up the house, which was in a disreputable state, to be livable.  It then became a comfortable summer retreat of Frank and Elva.  In 1936, they were joined there by Okey and Julia (Bond) Spalding, Margaret's sister.  After the death of Frank Bond in 1948, Norval Pierce in 1951 and Elva shortly after, Margaret, Julia and Okey were allowed to continue to live on "Frankelva", despite its deed having descended to Elva's heirs.  Some time after Okey died in 1956, the two sisters, now elderly, moved to a rental house in town. 

     Maynie Laura "Dixie" Bond (1872 - 1957) was R. L. and Mattie Bond's eldest child.  In 1891, she married Pierce Godbey Winslow (1873 - ?). Pierce was a cabinet-maker in the 1910 census, later, a hand in an automobile plant.  In 1901, they had a son, William Beverly Winslow (named after Pierce's father); he died at just 6 years of age in 1907.  Shortly thereafter they divorced.  Pierce re-married sometime between 1920 and 1930.  Maynie moved to the Oakland area and re-married Clarence Seward Smith (his 2nd marriage) between 1915 and 1920.  Smith had been born in Nova Scotia, Canada, and was naturalized before their marriage.  They lived in Oakland the remainder of their lives.  He was a home-builder during the California bungalow era; she ran a boarding house in one of his large houses.

     Julia Frances Bond (1877 - 1968), Margaret's next youngest sister, married in 1905 Okey Wallace Spalding (1872 - 1956).  Okey was a traveling salesman, and, for a while, they lived with R. L. Bond in his Sanders, Kentucky house.  There, they had a daughter, Margaret Catherine "Kit" Spalding (1907 - 1992).  When Kit was small, they lived in Lake Charles, Louisiana, then Little Rock.  In 1936, after Kit was off to college, Julia and Okey joined Margaret and Norval at "Frankelva" in Natchitoches.  Kit studied nursing at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, but had a long career as a newspaper reporter at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

     James Dorothy "Tot" Bond (1979 - 1964), Margaret's youngest sister, married in 1906 Arthur Yaeger Hayes (1979 - 1942).  He was described as a banker in their marriage record, and later as a farmer in the census.  They lived in Smithfield, Henry County, Kentucky, where his family was located and he was born.  Tot Hayes worked as a bookkeeper when she worked.  They had two sons: Robert Bond Hays (1912 - 1969), a Methodist minister who lived in the Atlanta, Georgia vicinity, and Arthur Hayden Hayes (Abt. 1915 - Bet. 1915-1920) who died in infancy.

     Richard Frank "R. Frank" "Frank" Bond (1881 - 1948), the only son of Robert L. and Mattie Bond, married in 1918 Elva Victoria Nash (1884 - 1951).  By 1910, his occupation was listed as superintendent of a cracker factory in New Orleans; his entire career was spent in the employ of the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco), New Orleans.  Frank and Elva bought a house in New Orleans at 30 Neron Place, about a block from the intersection of Canal St. and S. Carrollton St., the end of the line of the St. Charles streetcar.  Elva received, as a legacy from her mother, the ~69 acre farm, which she and Frank re-named: "Frankelva."  When Frank's sisters, Margaret and Julia and their husbands, needed a place to ride out the depression, and eventually to retire, "Frankelva" was offered.  In return, Norval Pierce and Okey Spalding renovated the house and kept the property in repair.

     This is a photograph of James Perry Pierce and some of his children.  They appear to be mourning for the woman pictured on the easel with a sash, who is probably Emeline (Rolston) Pierce.  The ages of his children, (L-R) Ira, Florence, and Cora, are consistent with this being 1895, the year Emeline died.

  c.1895.

    Comparison of images known or suspected of being of 1) Ira Tilden Pierce (1876-1954), 2) Florence Emeline Pierce (1861-1938), and 3) Cora A. Pierce (1869-1915), in order of increasing age from left to right.
     For details of the image strip comparisons, see MISC 016, MISC 008), and MISC 011.
059 The portrait on the easel appears to be a photograph of Emeline (Rolston) Pierce (1840-1895) at age 30-40, a copy of which has not survived.
059 This portrait, still hanging on the wall, appears to be James Perry Pierce, probably taken at the same time as the one of Emeline on the easel.  A copy of this photograph has not survived, either, despite the large number of photographs of James that are extant.

ALBUM4-PT1 060:
Photographic gelatine print mounted in an album.  The album caption reads: "Ambey Pierce".

Photographer:  Studio portrait, a duplicate of the image FPY 014.  The photo was presumably taken at the same time as images of her siblings Cora and George (FPY 015 and FPY 020).  See those images for explanation.

Subject:
   Ambie B. Pierce (1867-1888), daughter of James Perry Pierce (1841-1916) and Emeline F. (Rolston) Pierce (1840-1895), and wife of George M. Crider (1861-1917).

Date:
  c. 1883, if the assumption of being taken at the same time as FPY 015 and FPY 020 is correct.

ALBUM4-PT1 063: Photographic gelatine print - "Maggie Walker, Miriam Pierce (middle), Myrtle Walker [and others] in front of the Methodist church, Marion, KY".

Photographer:  Snapshot.

Subject:
  James P. Pierce was appointed guardian of the minor children of Lewis Walker on 6 Apr 18-- (date is cut off) probably 1897 (the father, Lewis Walker, died in 1896, and the mother, Mary Belt, died in 1897). The names of the children who were to be wards were not enumerated by the guardian bond, but probably would have included: George (1883), Addie (1884), Robert (1886), Harriett (1887), James (1888), Perdie (1891), Acie (male)(1892), Maggie (1895) and Myrtle (1896).  Addie cannot be in this photo because she died in 1902, years before the photo was taken.  This leaves four Walker girls that were wards, and a photo including the four and Miriam would be all the girls near that age in the Pierce household.
     Miriam Pierce is the center girl, known from many other photos, such as
     Myrtle Walker is known to be the furthest from the right, from the photo Album 3 Part 1 Image 008.
     Maggie Walker is known to be the second from the right, from the photo Album 3 Part 1 Image 003.
     The other two girls are then Harriet and Perdie.  Of these the furthest left seems to be younger, so would be Perdie, leaving the second from the left as Harriet.

Date:
  c.1915, in that Miriam (b.1898) b.looks less than 20 yrs, and Harriett (b.1887) no older than abt. 30.
ALBUM4-PT1 063 Detail: Probably Perdie Walker.
ALBUM4-PT1 063 Detail: Probably Harriet Walker.
ALBUM4-PT1 063 Detail: Maggie Walker.
ALBUM4-PT1 063: Myrtle Walker.
  064  ALBUM4-PT1 064: Photographic gelatine print - " Cora (Pierce) Crider and George Crider".

Photographer:  Studio portrait.

Subject:
  Cora (Pierce) Crider (1869-1915), daughter of Judge James Perry Pierce and Emeline Rolston, and her husband George M. Crider (1861-1917).

Date:
  c.1900, as she looks abt. 30 years old.
  065 







ALBUM4-PT1 065: Photographic gelatine print - marked in album: "Mr. &Mrs. Yandell - sister Florence, Mother Pierce, Miriam Pierce, Ira Pierce".
     See Image FPY 100 for another group photo taken minutes apart from this one.

Photographer:  Snapshot.

Subject:
      

     Front Row (L-R): According to the assumptions in Album 4 Part 1 Image 063, probably Perdie Walker (b. ~1891), probably Harriet Walker (1887-1971), Myrtle Walker (1896-1975), Maggie Walker (1894-1954), Miriam Pierce (1898-1987).
     Back Row (L-R): Cortes Pierce (1864-1924), William B. Yandell (1857-1940), possibly Laura Miles  (b. ~1876) married Cortes Pierce in 1916, George Crider (1861-1917), Cora (Pierce) Crider (1869-1915), Ira Pierce (1876-1924), Florence (Pierce) Yandell (1861-1938), Ella (Cox, Langley) Pierce (1861-1928).
     This is a Rosetta Stone-type photograph for identifying the Pierce family members when they are older.  It was especially important for William Bennett Yandell, who has a number of otherwise unrecognizable portraits (e.g., Image FPY 011) in his wife Florence Pierce's collection, yet no wedding portrait including Florence.
     It also is another photo of Walker sisters (see Album 4 Part 1 Image 63, FPY 100), four of whom are seated in front.

Date:
  c.1915.  James P. Pierce, the patriarch, is missing, and a date after his death (1916) makes sense, were it not Cora's presence (d.1915).  Miriam seems to be older than 17, but cannot be.

Lower Image:
      Comparison of images of William Bennett Yandell (1857-1940), husband of Florence Emeline (Pierce) Yandell (1861-1938) from various sources in this collection of images.
     The photo on the far right is definitely identified as Yandell, from a written description contemporary with the photo.  The remainder were added working backwards in time comparing photos to the right and left until reaching the photo on the far left, at his youngest.
     The sources of the images (e.g., CCHS 205)  are overlain on the images:  CCHS 205, CCHS 261, CCHS 212, FPY 009, FPY 010, FPY 011, ALBUM 4 PT1 IMG 0065.

ALBUM4-PT1 067:
Photographic gelatine print.  The caption in the album reads: "Bethel College, schoolmates, including Norval L. Pierce".  In addition, the front of the print has "N.L. Pierce" written above the second from the left student in the rear, standing row.

Photographer:  Professional Portrait.

Subject:
  Norval Lee Pierce (1871-1951), son of James Perry Pierce (1841-1916) and Emeline F. (Rolston) Pierce (1840-1895), and husband of Margaret Ramey (Bond) Pierce (1874-1970).  
     Bethel College was a Baptist-affiliated college in Kentucky founded in 1854 and closed in 1964. Throughout most of its history, the Hopkinsville campus was a women's college while the Russellville campus, ~40 miles away, was a men's college.

Date:
  c.1890, assuming that he is about 19 years old.

Lower Image:
      Comparison of images known or suspected of being of Norval Lee Pierce (1871-1951), in order of increasing age from left to right.
      The source of the images (e.g., CCHS 209) are overlain on the images.  They are (left to right): ALBUM 4 PT1 0057, CCHS 214, ALBUM 4 PT1 0058, CCHS 249, ALBUM 4 PT1 0067, FPY 021, FPY 155, FPY 022, ALBUM 2 0059, and ALBUM 2 0058.

  069  ALBUM4-PT1 069: Photographic gelatine print - "Margaret Bond, c.1910". 
     Since Margaret and her husband-to-be grew up several counties apart, and she lived in New Orleans and he in Marion, KY when they would have been courting, I have always thought that this portrait, 069, and the following one, 070, were used as a kind of set-up or first-look for potential mates who had not seen one another.
