  • ID: ind06488
  • Name: J. W. FONDEY
  • Given Name: J. W.
  • Surname: Fondey
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1813 in Virginia
  • Note:
  • Death: Y
  • Note: b. VA; 1860 US Federal Census, Liberty Twp., Logan Co., OH (J.W. Fondey, age 46, b.VA, Farmer); 1860 US Federal Census, Mercer's Bottoms, Mason Co., VA now WV (Thomas Findy, age 48, b.VA, Farmer); this connection to William John Fondey is uncertain since records indicate he was not married and may have died before 1824 - however, the census names bear a strong resemblance to the families of (cousins) John Isaac Fondey and Townsend Isaac Fondey - it is possible that William John Fondey had this one son (J.W.), who may have been born while his father served in the New York Militia during the War of 1812, which had battles in the Toledo, Ohio area, not far from Liberty, Ohio. 1860 US Federal Census, Liberty Twp., Logan Co., OH (18-Jun-1860) J W Fondey 46 Sarah Fondey 41 Joseph Fondey 21 Eliza Fondey 19 Martha Fondey 15 William Fondey 14 Edmond Fondey 12 Margaret Fondey 10 Walton Fondey 7 Sarah Fondey 5 Jane Fondey 3 Henry Fondey 1. To further complicate, this family looks to be the same, with the census taken in Mercer's Bottom, Mason Co., VA (now WV), on the OH border. It could have something to do with the impending Civil War, in which WV broke off from Virginia in 1863 and declared themselves part of the South. The handwriting on the census page could read Fondey rather than Findy. It could also be that Thomas was a brother of J.W., both with wive's named Sarah. 1860 US Federal Census, Mercer's Bottom, Mason Co., VA (4-Jun-1860) Thomas Findy 48 Sarah Findy 43 John Findy 21 Elizabeth Findy 20 Alex Findy 12 Samuel Findy 10 Thomas Findy 6 Mary C Findy 0 >> <<
