Easom died on 5 Oct 1847, Madison Co, GA at age 67. He is buried in Madison Co, GA, in his family cemetery located "near Old Bond's ford on the Hudson River." A marker, erected about 1938-40 by grandsons, Charlie and Paul H. Bond, stands in the cemetery. It gives all Easom's children and gives his father and mother's names as Collins & Permelia Crider Bond. Since it has been proven that his father was Joseph Ballenger Bond, Senior, the names of Collins and Permelia Crider could possibly have been from a maternal line, yet unknown, and confused with Bonds by later generations.
