Daughter of George and Lucy Eliza Tristram. The Tristram family crossed the Atlantic on the ship Arkwright, arriving in New York on 6 July 1866. Overland company records list them as independent passengers, meaning, they paid their own passage. They brought their own food and did not purchase food rations using the Perpetual Emigrating Fund.
She married John Bond. The inscription on her gravestone confirms her birth and death dates.
