Birth: Jun. 21, 1859
Death: Apr. 15, 1950

Edwin Lewis Fonda, 90, died Saturday morning at 7 o'clock at the home of his nieces, the Misses Elizabeth and Dorothy Wells, 21 North Melcher Street, Johnstown. He had been enjoying good health for a man of his years, and death came after an illness of only one week. He was born at Switzer Hill, June 21, 1859, the son of Cornelius and Sarah Margaret Fonda. He was a direct descendant of Douw Fonda, who was prominently connected with the Mohawk Valley history of Revolutionary days and after whom the Montgomery County Seat was named. Mr. Fonda was educated in the Fonda schools and later taught there for a time. In 1884, he married Jennie Wells, who died in 1920. He was employed at one time in the store of W. S. Argersinger & Sons, also the Williamson clothing store in Gloversville, but had been retired since 1918. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. The only survivors are nephews and nieces. The body has been removed to the Wassung-Brown & Ehle funeral home, Johnstown, where the funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The Rev. Raymond A. Ketchledge will officiate. Interment will be in the Johnstown Cemetery. Amsterdam NY Daily Democrat and Recorder, Monday, April 17, 1950.
