  • Note: b. NY; 1860 US Federal Census, Watervliet, Albany Co., NY; bur. Florence National Cemetery, Florence, Florence Co., SC; o. Farmer, Civil War Service: John Fonda; enlisted as a Private on 21-Oct-1863 at the age of 27; enlisted in Co.A, 47th Infantry Regiment New York on 21-Oct-1863; reported missing on 20-Feb-1864 at Olustee, FL (No further record); this soldier may have been captured, imprisoned and died at Florence, SC prison based on NYTimes 20-Dec-1864 article "The Union Captives: Additional Names of the Martyred Dead", which lists [J. Fondy, Co. A, 7th Penn. R.] under 'The Dead at Florence.' I suspect that the regiment was mixed up, because both the 47th NY and 7th PA fought at the Battle of Olustee.

Ledoux, Historian, Beaverdale, PA: "Put it all together, and it pretty well establishes a Florence death for your ancestor on September 24, 1864. He must have been among the very earliest men sent up from Charleston (after being evacuated from Andersonville), as the first prisoners to arrive at Florence only came on September 14th. The Stockade proper opened on October 2nd. In the interim, the men were housed in an open field with a guard posted all around. The sickest of the men, of whom John may have been a part, were placed in the shade of some large trees on the edge of the woods a couple of hundred yards off from the main group.]; [Original Florence Stockade arrival book (prisoner surnames beginning with letters S thru W) in "Register of Federal Prisoners of War Admitted to Confederate Prison Hospitals at Salisbury, N.C., Danville, Va., Cahaba, Ala., & Florence, S.C."
