      Newspaper Obituary - Friday, July 23, 1954 Watertown Daily Times - Watertown, New York - Ernest M. Pond Expires In Car - Station agent in Brownville stricken while driving in State Street - Ernest M. Pond, 64, of 109 Potter Ave. Brownville, for the past 15-1/2 years station agent at Brownville for the New York Central Railroad, died suddenly of a heart attack about 5:00 Thursday afternoon while driving his automobile along State Street, directly opposite Park Drive. Mr. Pond, employee of the railroad continuously for the past 45 years, more than 40 of them as agent of various stations, was on route with his wife to the home of their daughter, Mrs. John M. Lenz, near Black River, for supper when he was fatally stricken. At a point opposite the confectionery store of Mrs. Maybell I. Eveleigh, 1311 State Street, he suddenly slumped into the arms of his wife. The car came to a stop and Mrs. Pond sought aid from a passerby. One of them, Miss Mildred L. Greene, 1988 State Street, a registered graduate nurse, stopped and she found Mr. Pond was evidently beyond medical aid. He had apparently died almost instantly. The Reed & Benoit ambulance, called to the scene, removed him to the House of Good Samaritan, where Dr. J. A. Mishkin, his attending physician, pronounced Mr. Pond dead upon arrival at 5:25 p.m. Police were notified and Patrolman Nicholas Bura investigated. Mr. Pond had been afflicted with a heart condition for years, but worked regularly and was at work as usual Thursday. He had been under treatment in hospitals on various occasions during the past ten years for a heart condition. Surviving him, besides his wife, Mrs. Celia E. Greenley Pond, are six children, Mrs. John M. (Grace E.) Lenz, near Black River, Mrs. Walter C. (Ruth C.) Oliver, Ilion, Mrs. Charles F. (Thelma H.) Seamans, Canadaigua, Mrs. Stephen J. Eveleigh, Massena, Eugene E. Pond, Brownville and Airman 2/c Glenn G. Pond, U.S. Air force, on duty at the Donaldson Air Base at Greenville, South Carolina, ten grandchildren, nieces and nephews and two brothers, Winfield D. Pond and Fred F. Pond, Adams Center. He was a member and past master of the Masonic Blue Lodge of Parish, a member of the Methodist Church of Brownville and formerly Parish, a member of the Railroad Telegraphers' Union, a former (sic) member of the board of education of Parish, of which he was clerk for 13 years, and a former mayor of Parish. Mr. and Mrs. Pond lived for 13 years in Parish, where all of their children were born. Mr. Pond was born July 2, 1890 near Fernwood, son of the late Adelbert and Josephine Manwarren Pond. He attended old Mexico Academy and began his railroad career as telegraph operator June 8, 1909, serving at various stations, including Fernwood, Richland and Altmar. Promoted to station agent March 17, 1914, Mr. Pond served that capacity at a number of stations, including Adams, Crocketts, near Rochester, Carlton, Kendall, Pulaski, Williamson, Maple View, Brewerton, Clay, Parish, where he served 13 years and finally Brownville, to which he was transferred January 3, 1939. He married Miss. Celia E. Greenley of Adams May 15, 1918. The ceremony was performed in Ogdensburg by Rev. S. S. Davis, then pastor of a Methodist Church of that city, who had been pastor of the Methodist Church of Adams. Funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 from the home and at 2:30 in the First Methodist Church of Brownville. Rev. Kenneth L. Combs, pastor of the church, will officiate.
