Adelaide Johnson Campbell Bond


Adelaide Johnson Campbell Bond was the older sister of Montford Johnson. Adelaide was born on Christmas Day, 1841, in Indian Territory. When she was 17, during a trip to Fort Arbuckle, Adelaide met Michael Campbell, whom she would marry.

Adelaide and Michael had three children. During the Civil War, Michael became a major in the Chickasaw Battalion stationed at nearby Fort Arbuckle. Michael was killed trying to ford the Washita River in 1864.

Adelaide later married Jim Bond, a trader and stockman, who worked with Montford in the ranching business.
Adelaide was known for her hospitality—providing food for hungry cowboys driving herds near her home on the South Canadian River.
