Venerable Gloversvillian Has Feast in Celebration of Birthday Anniversary - For Over Quarter of Century Was Engaged In Tilling of Soil on Farm In This Vicinity. Cornelius Fonda, who boasts a family tree that gave a flourishing little village in this section its name, celebrated his ninety-eighth birthday Tuesday, and is just two years from having lived an entire century. The old gentleman, although infirm, hardly able to speak or hear, and always in an invalid's chair or on his bed, hopes to defy the inevitable for another two years at least. Mrs. H. P. Shutts, his daughter, of 25 West Fulton street, Gloversvllle, with whom he has made his residence ever since he moved there from Johnstown, three years ago, held a feast Tuesday night in honor of the occasion. The affair was given for a small army of immediate relatives, the direct descendants of the aged guest of honor. Mrs. Cornelius Fonda died about 12 Years ago at the age of 85 years. Thirty years back, Mr. Fonda was a Farmer, but since that time neither the hoe nor the plow have ever been approached by him for his physical incapacity dates back just that far. Mr. Fonda is a native of the town of Mayfield, being a son of Mr. And Mrs. Peter Fonda, born February 5, 1820. His parents were farmers and he was brought up to this life, remaining during his early boyhood in the town of Mayfield. Early in his career, he moved to the town of Amsterdam, where, on January 1, 1839, at the age of 19 years, he was married to Sarah Gunsolus. This union was not broken until long after firty years of wedded life. Mr. Fonda ran the farm in the town of Amsterdam for over a quarter of a century, finally giving up when his health failed. Amsterdam Evening Recorder, Wednesday, February 6, 1918]; [Cornelius Fonda, ninety-eight years of age, who died Wednesday night at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Harlan P. Shutts, 25 West Fulton street, is survived by four daughters, Mrs. James Bearcroft of Switzer Hill, Mrs. Harlan P. Shutts of Gloversville, Mrs. Margaret Lake and Mrs. H. A. Dopp of Johnstown, and three sons, James, William and Edwin L. Fonda of Johnstown. The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the home of Edwin L. Fonda, 330 West State street, Johnstown. Rev.
