This information relates to Chart 34, the descendants of Philip Pask, (1768-1843), who lived in Bryngwyn, Monmouthshire.

During the past few weeks we have been exchanging e-mails with Mitchel Bolin, whose great-grandmother was Mary Jane Bond née Paske. Mitchel has sent us some great photographs, kindly provided by his mother Virginia Ann Bolin née Bond. These photographs have been included in a web album titled Family of Thomas Henry & Mary Jane Bond née Paske.  

Mary Jane Paske was born on 9 October 1851 in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. She was the daughter of Isaac & Mary Paske née Little. Mary married Thomas Henry Bond in 1879. Thomas and Mary immigrated, together with their children, Edith, Herbert, Ethel, Eleanor, Fred, Ed, and Wallace, sailing on the ship "Vancouver" arriving in Quebec, Canada on 23 June 1889. Initially they moved to South Dakota, and then in 1902, they moved with their family to Watford City, McKenzie County, North Dakota, America. A picture of their homestead is available in the photogram album. Mary died on 21 June 1921 in North Dakota, America, at the age of 69.

The information on this family, and their descendants is included in the next website update.

Many thanks to Mitchel, and his mother Victoria, for sharing their photographs, and their information.
