Oliver James Bond papers, 1818-1933.

Letters, genealogical information, correspondence, photographs, and ephemera re Bond's interests, the Wayne family and related lines. Bond was a founder of the S.C. Chess Association and state champion in 1928; includes letters documenting this aspect of Bond's life, as well as photographs of a visit to the home of chess legend Paul Morphy in New Orleans. Bond was a distant cousin of the Revolutionary War officer, General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, and much of this collection is related to the Wayne family, including the 1818 obituary of Bond's great-grandfather William Wayne that was published in the Georgetown Gazette, along with a remembrance of the same individual (dated 18 Feb. 1864) recorded by another family member, Catherine Wayne Chrietzberg; also includes letter, 21 Sept. 1837, written by Francis Asbury Wayne (son of William Wayne). Includes genealogical information on the following related families: Ballentine, Fishburne, Fullarton, Simons, Sinkler, and Snipes. A detailed family history, prepared and illustrated by Bond for his granddaughter Mary Ellen in 1923, shows the relationships between all these lines. Other items include genealogical correspondence, six annotated photographs by Bond of his boyhood home in Marion, S.C., and a 13 Feb. 1912 letter from Bonds' son Oliver to his mother, on active duty at the Panama Canal.
