Richard Daniel Pond is my GGrandfather. He is descended from the John Pond line, from Southampton, VA. He married twice. First wife was Catherine Ellis, and after her death he married her younger sister Emma Ellis. Her parents are Stephen Ellis and Elizabeth Jones Ellis. Stephen Ellis is a Jeremiah Ellis decendant, and was born in 1787 in Sussex, VA. I have lots of Pond info but cannot find my Ellis relatives. My Grandfather was Orlando Wythe Pond, who was born Nov 23, l866 in Surry Co Va. I cannot find much about his first wife, Betty O. Griffith from Norfolk, VA. She had several siblings-one was named Willie. They are buried in the Maury Cemetery in Richmond, VA. I believe she had several daughters who survived her. Any Pond or Ellis info is welcome.
