About Abel P. Bond, Deacon

"Deacon Abel Bond, of the Lost Creek Church,

had a home at Quiet Dell, where the early missionaries

to western Virginia were always first entertained on their

arrival upon that field." 1

1. Abel Bond entered eighty-eight (88) acres of land on Elk Creek, in Harrison

County, Virginia, in 1800. In 1838, the following entries were made on the

North Fork of Hughes River: —

Benjamin F. Bond, one hundred (100) acres.

Ethelbert Bond, one hundred (100) acres.

Lewis Bond, one hundred and ninety-one (191) acres.

Lewis Bond, one hundred and sixteen (n6) acres.



From the very beginning of its existence up to within a

few years of the date of this writing, the Lost Creek Church

has maintained a preaching station at Quiet Dell, situated on

Elk Creek, some ten miles from Clarksburg, and about an

equal distance from Lost Creek Station.

This was the home of Abel Bond, Sr. His home was the

first stopping place of missionaries sent to Virginia from the

north and east, as they came on horseback up the West Fork

River from the Woodbridgetown Church.
