    [Jeremiah D. Fonda, 89, died yesterday morning at 8:10 o'clock at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Sue Fonda Scholze, at 1017 St. Elmo Ave, St. Elmo. Mr Fonda leaves two daughters, Mrs Sue Fonda Scholze, and Mrs. Lottie I. Boyce, both of Chattanooga, and one son, Henry J. Fonda. Mrs. Vernie Spencer, of Chattanooga, and Leonard T. Boyce, of Macon GA and other grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. Mr. Fonda was born in Fonda, NY, but moved with his parents to Burlington, VT in his boyhood days, and spent his young manhood there. He was of a hardy, rugged disposition, and in the early fifties went to the Cripple Creek gold mining regions, where he spent two years. About the year 1875, Mr. Fonda, together with his family, moved to Chattanooga and entered the contracting and building business, which he followed up to the time his strength failed, and was well known to the contractors and builders of the early days of the city. Mr. Fonda was a loving husband and father, a splendid citizen, and won the love and respect of a large circle of friends. Funeral services will be held at the funeral parlors of the Jack O'Donohue company, Monday morning at 10:30 o'clock, Dr. J. W. Bachman officiating. The following are requested to act as pallbearers: Ernest Spencer, Herbert Spencer, Rov Blevins, Richard Fry, David Jones, and Edward Birdsell. Note - Sandra Stuart wrote, on 3/3/2010: I will attach a copy of Jeremiah D's obit. There are some questionable items in it. I think the family had moved to Chattanooga by 1873, instead of 1876, because the youngest child is listed in the 1880 census as being born in 1873 in TN. Also the Cripple Creek gold rush didn't happen until the 1890s! Perhaps fifties is a typo. I find it strange that Charlotte is not mentioned but, since she died in 1888, I guess not many people would have remembered her. Chattanooga Times, June 10, 1922]
