RE: Henry J. Fonda, Walnut Ridge
Remember, the information is only as good as the person giving the information. Bessie his wife gave the information for the death record. I do not know who gave the information to the engraver of the stone. I forward you the content of the death record as a help. However, I have known death records simply to be wrong. But at least you can quote the source and let others draw there own conclusions. As to dates from the 1900 census, they are at best suspect because the question of how old someone was at the time of the census and how it was interrupted by the census taker vary from who was answering the question to the census taker's understanding of the given information. Glad you enjoyed the information.

George Fonda
Yes, George probably did die in 1925, not 1940. I do take photos at Mt. Pleasant and there is at least one other volunteer who does. Maybe if the death date is resolved, you don't need a photo, but if you still want one, why not put in a request for a photo? It will be spring or summer before anyone gets there, most likely.

Obit for Mary Fonda Conner
Thank you so much for sending this to me. I've added to her bio. We never knew much about her, so this information was really wonderful to get. Always happy to receive anything like this.

RE: Edmond S. Fonda, Jr.
Thanks for the heads up on the obit for Edmund Fonda # 20888259. Obviously I got the son mixed up with the Dad and thought to myself you hadn't had time to post the obit or it slipped thru the cracks. Thanks for putting it where it belongs. I removed the graphics.

Elon Fonda, Pawlet Mountain Road Cemetery.
Hello Mark,

Thank you for sending the obituary of Elon Clark Fonda, it is much appreciated. I added it to the memorial, made some of the family connections and updated some of the stats. Fonda is one of the collateral branches of our Farrar family lineage.

Please note the date of the memorial, this was during the time we were caring for our dying son and my husband died about 5 weeks later. I am still working on catching up on a number of memorials that were not completed from around December 2010 thru to April of 2011. Memorials were not my top priority during the time period from when my husband died, until the summer of 2012. To many loses and an overwhelming amount of grieving.

Thanks again and
The Best to You and Yours, Butterfly~Kisses
