I will do everything I can to locate an answer to your question.
Do you know when or where Effie was born, or when or where she married?
In ordeer to perform a search that will reveal promising results, it helps to know the where and when of the incident. Any other information you have on Effie would be helpful also.
I will do some preliminary research while I wait for your reply.
Hello and thank you for your patience.
Despite the seemingly abundance of information the has been proliferated online, I believe an error has been made.
Please keep in mind that all of the research done on Just Answer is done online.
Anyway, here is what I have..
1870 United States Federal Census
Louisa Bond, black, born about 1856 in North Carolina. Living in Windsor, Bertie, North Carolina.
Father is Benjamin Bond age 57, mother Jane is 47,siblings Watson is 16, Mariah is 21, Lovey is 4, and Louisa is 14.
1880 United States Federal Census
Effy Bond age 30, black, born in North Carolina. Living in Whites, Bertie, North Carolina.
Father and Mother were both born in North Carolina. She is working as a house keeper and she is single.
North Carolina Death Certificate for Effie Bond and Tom Small's son Fred.
Fred was born May 5, 1861 in Bertie County, North Carolina and died Dec 26, 1955 in Robersonville, Martin County, North Carolina, at the age of 94.
His spouse's name was Lilia.
Then you have L. Bond, Louisa Speller, Effie Bond. This person or persons were born abt 1853 in North Carolina. Louisa Speller born Sep 1854 married Elisah Speller in 1868. Then we are back with Effie Bond who married Robert Speller about 1868. Robert and Elisah could be the same person.
I do not believe the person who married Tom Small is the same person who married Robert Speller.
I do believe the parents of the person who married Tom Small are Benjamin and Jane Bond.
I will delve into this a little deeper. I do this because I enjoy the research.
I find this case very interesting and look forward to solving this puzzle.
However, I would ask that you allow me, at most, until Sunday to submit an answer to you.
My sister passed away two days ago and we are having a wake today.
