Sources: Census, marriage, death records. Also an extensive obituary can be found in "The Journal-Telephone" Newspaper of Milton Junction, Wisconsin, which was published on Thursday, June 5, 1924 soon after his death:

We found conflicting info on Luther's enlistment. We believe he enlisted as a Corporal on October 16, 1861 in Company K, in the 13th Infantry Regiment of Wisconsin. He was promoted to Full Sergeant and was mustered out on Nov 18, 1864. His 20th Army Corps, Army of the Cumberland, was under General Thomas. He was at the battles of Clarkesville, Tennessee, Fort Donelson, and the battle of Chickamauga. He was a member of the G.A.R. or Grand Army of the Republic and the American Legion.

"Dr. Luther L. Bond graduated from Milton, Wisconsin schools and then Rush Medical School, Chicago, Illinois in 1870. He practiced medicine in Welton, Iowa IA from 1870-75, Westside, Iowa IA until 1899, and Denison, Iowa IA. He was a resident surgeon for the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Company starting in 1893. He was a member of the Crawford County Medical Society, the American Medical Association, the American Association of Railroad Surgeons, and the Association of Northwestern Railroad Surgeons."

This is a beautiful old photo of Dr. L.L. Bond, a very well known and loved Iowa and Wisconsin doctor. It is somewhat light in tone, but we are still able to see his features very clearly at full size. This was most likely taken when he was in school in Chicago. It was found in Monroe, Monroe County, Michigan. A beautiful and original signed ancestor photo.
