He, along with many other members of the 27th Louisiana, was transferred to Co. B, Ogden Cavalry Battalion in December of 1863.
Pond moved to Texas in 1901 and worked as a farmer. He lived in Travis County for five years before applying for a Confederate pension from the State of Texas in 1925. The pension was granted later that year.
