    [Death of Peter Fonda - Under our obituary head will be observed an announcement of the death of Peter Fonda, one of our oldest citizens. He died yesterday, aged 63 years. Mr. F. was born in Troy, in the old house near the Catholic Burial Ground, on Ida Hill, now occupied by Mr. Seneca. He was the oldest butcher here, having kept a stall in our markets over forty years. Mr. Fonda was an upright citizen; he possessed a noble, generous heart, and in his time has done much in helping the poor, and in alleviating the distresses of the unfortunate. Many have been helped by his kindly hand to business positions from which they have derived a competence. Much good, many acts of true charity, have been performed by Peter Fonda in his quiet way, and with a free and liberal heart. He was always industrious - always at work. Contented in his humble station, Peter Fonda had smiles for all, a good word and a blessing for every one with whom he came in contact. A good citizen and an honest man is gone. Blessed be his memory. Troy Daily Times. December 7, 1857]; [Died - In this city, on Sunday, Dec. 6th, Peter Fonda, in the 63d year of his age. The friends of the family are invited to attend the funeral Tuesday afternoon, at 2 o?clock, from his late residence, No. 116 First st. Troy Daily Times, December 7, 1857]

    [Mortgage Foreclosure - Whereas, Peter Fonda, then of the city of Troy, in the county of Rensselaer, and State of New York, now deceased, executed and delivered a mortgage, with power of sale, unto Margaret J. Randall, of Oswego, in the county of Oswego, and State aforesaid, bearing date the 19th day of August, 1857, and recorded in Madison County Clerk's office, on the 27th day of August, 1857, in Book A. M. of mortgages, on page 455, &c, on "all that certain lot, piece, or tract of land situated in the town of Sullivan, in the county of Madison, and known as lot Number sixty-three, (63) in that large tract of land known as the Oneida Reservation, in the State of New York," as described in said mortgage. The amount claimed to be due and unpaid upon said mortgage, at the date of the first publication of this notice, (July 10th, 1861,) is two thousand, five hundred and forty-four dollars, and seventy-two cents, ($2,544.72;) and no proceedings at law having been instituted, to recover the debt secured by said mortgage, and the same having become due, and default having been made in the payment thereof, and the said power of sale having become operative, Now, therefore, by virtue of the power of sale contained in said mortgage, and of the statute in such case made and provided, the said mortgage will be foreclosed, by a sale of said mortgaged premises at public auction, at the Railroad House, kept by P. Farrell, in the village of Oneida, and county of Madison, on the 10th day of October next, (1861,) at 2 1-2 o'clock. P. M. Dated July 10th, 1861. Margaret J. Randall, Mortgagee. B. B.
