    [R033a Illustrated History of Arkansas Valley, Colorado - G. H. Fonda, Chief of the Leadville Fire Department and one of Leadville's most wide-awake citizens, was born in Augusta, Ill., on the 25th of January, 1848. He received a good common-school education, and at the age of fourteen years was apprenticed to the drug firm of Smith & Dwyer, in Chicago, where he remained until 1866, being put in charge of the wholesale department a few months before leaving the firm. While yet a boy he connected himself with the fire department of Chicago. He came to Colorado in 1866, and located in Central City, where he engaged in mining for one and a half years. He then embarked in the drug business, as senior member of the firm of Fonda & Farnald. Mr. Fonda helped organize the first fire company in Central City. In 1869, he moved to Caribou, and embarked in the mercantile business for one year. He then moved to Boulder, where he again engaged in the drug business; in 1875 he helped organize the Boulder Fire Department, and continued an active member for three years, working one year on the rope, one year as foreman of the Phoenix Company and one year as Chief of the Department. He then came to Leadville where he started a drug store, and at once connected himself with the Leadville fire Department, and was chosen Chief at the end of the first year. He has since re-organized the department, making it one of the best in the West, consisting of 160 active members, a general history of which will appear in another place in this work. Mr. Fonda was married to Miss E. Hull in 1872, and has three children.]; [Bureau of Land Management - Boulder Co., CO - Fonda, Giles H - Issue Date 10/10/1882 - 160 Acres - Serial Nr. 229 COCOAA 037527]
