Reminiscences of Saratoga - Ferdinand Wiggins Fonda was born in Saratoga Springs, September 23, 1839. For many years he was, like his father, a leading merchant of this community. His dry goods store was on Broadway, corner of Caroline street. He was one of the pioneers in the oil industry in Pennsylvania and was successful in accumulating a comfortable competence therefrom, and retired to live in New York City. He was a regular visitor to Saratoga Springs, every summer and considered Saratoga, the most attractive place in America. He had two sons, Ferdinand Walter Fonda, U. S. A. retired; and living at El Paso, Texas; and Murray Rawson Fonda of New York City. Mr. Fonda died, February 22, 1919. The Saratogian, Friday, January 6, 1928.
