  • Note: b. Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY; 1850 & 1870 US Federal Census, Sharon, Schoharie Co., NY; 1855 New York State Census, E.D.6, Ward 9, New York City, New York Co., NY; 1870 US Federal Census, Troy, Rensselaer Co., NY; 1875 Troy NY City Directory (Fonda, Sanford V - salesman); [As stated in yesterday's Saratogian, Coroner Noxon of Ballston went to Galway yesterday and held an inquest into the cause of the death of the man Fonda, who was found insensible by the road side, and who died Monday morning. The result of the inquest is strongly in favor of dismissing the theory of murder in the case. Coroner Noxon took the testimony of a large number of witnesses, relatives of the deceased and others. The name of the deceased was Sanford V. Fonda. It appears that he was on his way to visit a cousin, Jacob H. Fonda, instead of a brother. His father is Sebastian F. Fonda of Sharon Springs. (..) The testimony of these witnesses elicited the fact that deceased was for seven years in the employ of Daniel Klock, Jr., in Troy, as clerk. About the first of July last Fonda left his place in Troy on account, it seems, of dissipated habits. Since July he had no special occupation but had lived with his father and other relatives, His father had supplied him with what little money he might want, the last contribution amounting to only $10, having been given him in December. (..) The testimony of Dr. VonAllen went to show that the wound on the face of deceased which was at first reported to have been made by a club in the hands of an assassin, was caused by a fall upon the icy road. The theory of the witness was that he had fallen and hurt himself thus badly, that he was unable to rise and that his low condition when found and his subsequent death were caused by the night's exposure. The rumor that deceased had a valuable gold watch on his person was contradicted by evidence. The time-keeper proves to be oroide and of little value. (..) After hearing the eyidence the jury returned a verdict to the effect that Sanvord V. Fonda came to his death in consequence of convulsions and exposure to cold on the night of January 22, 1876, on the road near the Christian church in Galway, Saratoga county, N. Y . Saratoga Springs NY Saratogian, Thursday, January 27, 1876] >> www.fonda.org <<
