Good article on Cuthand. I remember as a child playing on the Cuthand Creek. Many of my ancestors are buried in the Cemetery that if Reservoir is built will be under water. Cuthand has some of the most beautiful woodlands in Red River County. How sad that the area my ancestors built The Mauldins, The Duffees, The Latimers, The Eudys, and the Mankins to name just a few were not mentioned in the article. Many are buried in the Cuthand Cemetery, and would be lost forever under a lake.

Miss Kitty,

My name is Clinton English. My dad's side of the family all lived in Cuthand, Texas and are buried in the Cuthand Cemetery. The family name is Bond. One of Isaac Anderson Bond's daughters, Lillie Bond, married into the Mauldin family. Also, one of his son's married into the Mankins family. These two children are from Isaac's marriage to Sarah Jane Kimbrough Bond. When she died, Isaac married Permelia Ophelia "Medey" Green-Whitley-Bond. I come from the Permelia Bond line as she was my grandmother's mother. All are buried in Cuthand Cemetery. I am wondering if you have any family information?

We are related. Leonard Bond who's daughter was our neighbor Neva Dell were related to my Mother through the Mauldins. Mr. Bond was a great teacher, and a very good man.
You couldn't ask for better relatives. The Bonds have always been a well thought of family. Just good honest folks who were a strong bunch in settling Cuthand. I'm proud to come from such a good bunch as you've listed. They don't make them any better than our ancestors.

I too, am a descendant of Permelia. My mother was her daughter, Ollie Belle Whitley. I never knew Permelia as she died before I was born. Mother often talked about half brothers and sisters, Leander and Fairy Bond. I think I met Fairy when we visited Texas in about 1946 when I was about 11 years old. Do you know about any of them?
