Bennett - Bond, James Bennett to Lizzie Bond, both of Carleton Place, 29 June 1883, at English Ch. Carleton Place by Rev. Mr. Low.

Carleton Place, April 17 - death

The flag on the Town Hall is today flying at half mast in honor of James E. Bennett who passed away Easter Sundy morning with heart trouble. His condition did not seem critical until the last few days and the news of his death will come as a great shock to his many friends in Carleton Place and the Ottawa Valley, who admired him for his many sterling qualities.

He was born in Ferguson Falls November 9, 1860, and when a boy of nine years, he came to Carleton Place where he has since resided.

His survivors are his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth (Bond) Bennett; sons, Harry, Gordon and Austin, all of Carleton Place, William, of Alberta, Harris, of New Liskeard, and one sister, Mrs. Mary Thom, of New Westminister, BC. One son and one daughter predeceased him some years ago.

Thirty years ago he started in business as a butcher and under his good management it has steadily grown and has been known for years as J. E. Bennett and Sons.

He was mayor of Carleton Place for three years and it was due to his foresight that the old Caldwell property on the shores of the Mississippi River was purchased by the town and since been converted into a town park and in 1926 when a parks commission was formed, Mr. Bennett was made president. He took a great interest and was closely associated with all kinds of sports, particularly baseball, and was president of the Carleton Place Baseball Association for two years and a vice-president of the E. O. A. B. A. For several years he was president of the Lanark County Conservative Association and always took an active interest in politics.

The funeral will be from his late residence on Flora street on Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock to St. James Anglican Church where services will be conducted and interment at the English Church Cemetery.

Obituary published in the Syracuse Post Standard dated May 9, 1954

            George H. Bond, widely known Syracuse attorney and former member of the New York State Board of Regents, died yesterday afternoon at his home, 304 Walnut Place, after a long illness.

            Mr. Bond, senior partner in the Bond, Schoeneck & King law firm was 80 years. He resigned as a Regent in February, 1953, for reasons of health.

            One of the organizers and early presidents of the New York State Association of District Attorneys, Mr. Bond also served as president of the New York State Bar Association in 1937.

            Born in Syracuse Aug. 10, 1873, the son of William H. and Ida Hopkins Bond, Mr. Bond lived his entire life in and around the city where he was educated and for close to half a century practiced law.

            As a student at Syracuse University, he led the university's football forces for two straight seasons as captain and modestly credited that to the fact "that they didn't have anyone else to elect as captain."

            He was graduated from Syracuse University in 1894, when he was 21, with a degree of bachelor of philosophy, and from the university law college in 1897 with a degree of bachelor of laws. It was the first full-time law class to go out of the newly formed college.


            Then in 1930, his alma mater honored him by conferring honorary degrees of master of philosophy and doctor of laws.

            Close on the heels of his graduation from law college, Mr. Bond began the practice of law in Syracuse and gained his first official recognition about 10 years later, in 1908, when he was named Onondaga County district attorney. He served in that office six years and in 1915 was named a special deputy attorney general by Gov. Whitman, serving for two years.

            The professional repute he gained in those offices was continued and enhanced by his association with the late Edward Schoeneck and the late Clarence R. King in the firm which has become widely known as Bond, Schoeneck & King.

            Preferring the more active practice of law to a career on the bench, Mr. Bond worked with the State and American Bar Association directed toward improvement of the profession. hen he was elected to the presidency of the state association, he  considered it a "great honor" to follow in that office in the footsteps of two fellow Syracusans, Frank H. Hiscock, former chief judge of the Court of Appeals and William Nottingham.


            Prior to his election as president of the state bar association he served many years as president of the Fifth Judicial District in the state association. He also was the New York State member on the council of the American Bar Association.

            As a collegian, Mr. Bond was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon, Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Delta Phi, honor society of the College of Law. He was one of the founders of Phi Kappa Alpha, senior men's honorary society.

            While still in law school, Mr. Bond was appointed first official coach of Syracuse football and was sent to Yale to make a study of the sport. He returned to Syracuse and began the difficult task of building unity and organization in a sport which was still new to the colleges.

            Following his admission to the bar, Mr. Bond was appointed professor bailments in the university's College of Law, where he taught for a decade. During that time, he also was a member of the Athletic Governing Board, working continually for the development of football at Syracuse.


            A a student of the Board of Trustees of Syracuse University from 1926 to 1930, Mr. Bond was a member of Chancellor Flint's Executive and Finance Committee. He resigned from the board upon being elected to the New York State Board of Regents, which has supervision of educational affairs of the state, including secondary schools and institutions of higher education incorporated under the laws of New York.

            During 23 years as a Regent, Mr. Bond served as chairman of the Regents committee on charters, law and legislation and as a member of the committee, finance and administration.

            The prominent attorney also had served as a director of the A. E. Nettleton Shoe Co., the Onondaga Pottery Pass-Seymour, Inc.

            In 1937 Mr. Bond whose Walnut Place home is the only private residence remaining in SU Fraternity Row, accepted chairmanship of University Alumni Fund, heading the committee which controls and undertakes the raising of endowment for the institution.

            A golf "putterer," but not an "addict," Mr. Bond participated in the first land purchases that later went into the rolling links of the Onondaga Golf and Country Club, one of the oldest courses in Upstate New York.

            Mr. Bond selected a spot high in the State Tower Building for his law office so he could see, by turning of his chair slightly, the house where he was born, on the edge of Forman Park, where he went to high school and college, where his mother was born, his own home and the hills where he fished and hunted as a youngster.


            Before resigning as a state regent, Mr. Bond spoke out in opposition to the State University law calling for a revision to divest State University trustees of administrative powers. During the controversy that developed over delegation to the board of trustees of some of the functions traditionally restricted to the board of regents, Mr. Bond pointed out that the trustees are appointed by the governor and warned of the political peril which he declared are inherent in an educational setup under direct gubernatorial control.

Mr. Bond was for a number of years honorary president of Syracuse Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution. Among the honors bestowed upon him was presentation of the gold medal of the Empire Society of the Sons of the Revolution for the services he rendered the state of New York as a member of the Board Regents.


Mr. Bond is survived by his wife, Mrs. Florence Woodford; a daughter, Mrs. Margaret Bond Brockway of DeWitt; a son, George H. Bond, Jr., of Cazenovia; a brother, Arthur B. Bond of Skaneateles; and eight grandchildren, George Bond Brockway, Frances Patricia Brockway, Suzanne S. Bond, Margot W. Bond, Anita McAlphin Bond, George Hopkins Bond, 3d; Sari W. Bond and Margaret E. Bond.

Services for Mr. Bond will be conducted at 3 p.m. tomorrow in Park Central Presbyterian Church by the Rev. Arthur W. Mielke. Burial will be in Oakwood Cemetery.
