JOB BOUND, JR. - 1835-1909


Tidbits I have picked up along the way about Job Bound, Jr.:

Job Bound, Jr. was born in 13 November 1835 in Broome Co., N.Y. Death record says Job was born on 13 November 1831 but with his death date and age at death, the calculation is that is birth year would be 1835. Perhaps there was an error on the death certificate as he was listed as 26 years on the 1860 census which would mean he was born in about 1834/35. Then again the marriage year of his parents might also be in question as that does not add up either if they were married in 1836. Also the cemetery record says his grave marker reads that he was born October 4, 1834 so this should all be checked out.

He served in the Eighth Battery Wisconsin Light Artillery during the Civil War from January 30, 1864 until mustered out on August 10, 1865.

Job Bound Jr. died on 21 August 1909 in Plainfield, Waushara Co., WI., at the age of 73y9m8d of face cancer and exhaustion. He is buried in the Plainfield Cemetery, Waushara Co., WI.

He was married to Caroline Elizabeth "Carrie" Walker, daughter of Judge Thomas Henry Walker and Elizabeth Sharrott, on 11 November 1860 in Plainfield, Waushara Co., WI.

Job Bound Jr. and Caroline Elizabeth Walker had the following children:

1. Tetie E. Bound, born July 1861 and died December 1863 in Plainfield at the age of 1y6m. Buried in Plainfield Cemetery.
2. Mary Ann "Mollie" Bound
