"CITY'S OLDEST VETERAN CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY

"Gardiner H. Fonda, 142 Park place, observed the 85th anniversary of his birthday Saturday at his home, receiving many congratulations from friends who called and otherwise. He was born September 6, 1828, and was employed before the Civil War as an Adams Express Company messenger on several of the roads in the south. He came home before the war broke out and enlisted in R Company, 176th New York Infantry, serving two years and nine months and being mustered out at Savannah, Ga., in 1866. He came back to Schenectady and was appointed a keeper at Auburn prison, serving under Superintendent D. P. Forrest of this city. Mr. Fonda was a son of the late Dr. Alexander G. Fonda and is probably the oldest veteran of the Civil War now living in this city."
