Birth: 1836
Death: Sep. 24, 1864

John Fonda (Fondey); enlisted as a Private on 21-Oct-1863 at the age of 27; enlisted in Co.A, 47th Infantry Regiment New York on 21-Oct-1863; reported missing on 20-Feb-1864 at Olustee, FL (No further record)

This soldier may have been captured, imprisoned and died at Florence, SC prison based on NY Times 20-Dec-1864 article "The Union Captives: Additional Names of the Martyred Dead", which lists [J. Fondy, Co. A, 7th Penn. R.] under 'The Dead at Florence.' (The regiment was mixed up, because both the 47th NY and 7th PA fought at the Battle of Olustee.)
