Carpenter, Farmer; [George Fonda, an old and well known resident of Johnstown, died at his home Monday morning after an illness of several years' duration. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Moore and first saw the light of day in Cherry Valley, 86 years ago. Mr. Fonda came to Johnstown thirty-seven years ago and has ever since resided there. He followed trade of a carpenter and contractor until about eight years ago when on account of failing health he was obliged to retire. He was married in 1843 to Miss Susan Vrooman, who survives him. Besides his wife, he is survived by four daughters. Mrs. E. A. Van Valkenburgh and Mrs. J. S. Fox, of Syracuse, Mrs. H. S. Garlock, of Lyle, Wash., and Mrs. W. J. Gardner, of Johnstown, and a large number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. The funeral will be held at the home Wednesday afternoon and will be private. The remains will be taken to Sharon Hills Thursday morning and the Interment will be made in the family plot in the Slate cemetery. Amsterdam NY Evening Recorder and Daily Democrat, Tuesday, October 18, 1910. Note: Not sure why this obituary states his parents were Mr. and Mrs. John Moore and he was only 68 years old. His parents were Hendrik Fonda and Rebecca Hall and his gravestone shows he was 86 years old. The rest appears to be accurate.] >> <<

    • Note: m. Sharon, NY; [The sixty-fifth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. George Fonda of No. 307 Fon Claire street was appropriately celebrated at their home Friday when the members of five generations of their family were present. The occasion was one of much pleasure. Mr. Fonda is 84 years of age while his wife is two years younger, but age had no bar to the enthusiasm in which they entered into the enjoyment of the affair. Mr. Fonda is afflicted with poor eye-sight, but outside of that is as sprightly as a man several years younger. Mrs. Fonda is active and is able to sew without the use of glasses. Mr. and Mrs. Fonda are of German extraction, their ancestors being pioneer settlers in New Schenectady. Mr. Fonda followed farming for thirty five years, but for the past thirty five years has been a resident of this city. He is one of sixteen children, eight of whom enlisted in the Civil war. Seven were in actual service, and one brother was a Colonel in the Black Hawk War. All returned home honorably discharged with the exception of one who died in Andersonville prison. Mrs. Fonda's maiden name was Vrooman, and she was one of six children. Mr. and Mrs. Fonda have four children, Mrs. E. A. Van Valkenburgh, of Syracusse; Mrs. H. S. Garlock, of Portland, Oregon; Mrs. J. S. Fox, of Syracuse, and Mrs. W. J. Gardner, of Johnstown; ten grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.
