    [Died - At Caughnawaga, Montgomery co. on the 17th inst. Gen. Henry Fonda, an old and respectable inhabitant of that place. Albany Argus (Albany, NY), Friday, September 26, 1828]

    [Brig. Gen. Henry Adam Fonda was an officer in Maj. Gen. Jacob Brown's Infantry Regiment, later in Maj. Gen. Henry Dearborn's Regiment and participated in the Lake Ontario Skirmishes during the War of 1812 against Canada and the British. He was appointed Brig. Gen. of the 11th Infantry in 1820. During 1807, 1816 and 1819, he was a member of the NY State Legislature representing the Fourth Senatorial District of Tryon County]; [Military Service: 1786 Ensign No. 1 in Col. Frederick Fisher's Regiment, 1793 Captain in Brig.-General Volkert Veeder's Regiment, 1802 Second Lieut. - Col. Abraham Veeder's Regiment, 1810 Major in Brig. - General Richard Dodge's Regiment, 1816 Lieutenant-Colonel in 34th Regiment of Infantry, 1819 Colonel in 34th Regiment of Infantry, 1820 Brigadier-General of the 11th Brigade of Infantry]

    [One of the first signs of modern commerce in the Mohawk Valley was a cotton-mill, carried on for about five years by a company organized in 1811, consisting of John and Simon Veeder, G. VanDeusen, Henry Fonda and Myndert Wemple. A woolen-mill and carding-machine for custom-work was attached. Simon I. Veeder rented the building, and started a satinet factory in 1825, which he continued till 1830, when he sold to John Booth. The water-power afforded by Cayadutta Creek led, at a very early day, to the establishment of grist-mills at this point. One is said to have stood, previous to the Revolution, half a mile above the site of the Cayadutta, or "Upper" mill. Cayadutta Creek begins as a trickle in the hills some three miles north of Gloversville. It flows southward for more than 17 miles to the Mohawk River/Erie Canal, passing through the communities of Gloversville, Johnstown, Sammonsville, Berryville and Fonda]
