Veterans Pass Away - Coldwater, Mich., Aug. 1 - Two of Branch county's veterans, William H. Fonda and Ranselar Brown, died yesterday within a short time of each other. Mr. Fonda was 68 years of age and Mr. Brown was 75. Both enlisted at the breaking out of the Civil War and served until Lee's surrender, after which they returned to their farms in Branch county. Both had accumulated comfortable fortunes and have spent their declining years in this city. Both Mr. Fonda and Mr. Brown were natives of Branch county and were among the first white children born within its limits. Mr. Fonda was stricken with paralysis on July 21, and lived for nine days thereafter without eating or drinking. 1908-08-02 Kalamazoo Gazette.
