This farm was also the site of the ferry used by Earl Loudon in 1755 as a military crossing, to replace the dangerous ford at Waterford, where the sprouts of the Mohawk River made it unsafe. The ferry was later known as the Halfmoon ferry or ford and was in use by the Continental army during the campaign of 1777, when Generals Arnold, Poor and others, with Colonel Daniel Morgan's riflemen were here stationed to protect it from Tories and British irregulars. This ferry was used by General Knox and is a part of what is called the "Knox Trail;" Loudonville, a hamlet on the Loudon road between Albany and Latham, perpetuates the name of Earl Loudon. Some of the timbers of the old Halfmoon fort were used in the construction of the homestead of Cornelius Fonda. The State bought this farm when constructing the Barge Canal; the buildings were destroyed and the burial plot removed to its present site on the Albany - Crescent - Saratoga highway at a place called Crescent Heights, about a mile south of Crescent, Saratoga County. It is fenced with an iron pipe fence with cement pillars and is in good condition.]; [R035b] Family, Bible, Church and Cemetery Records >> www.fonda.org <<
