Mrs. Ellen Fonda Argersinger - At rest at Fonda, N. Y., Saturday, January 15, 1927, Ellen Fonda, widow of the late John Christopher Argersinger; mother of Esther M., Lena F. and Boyd F. Argersinger and sister of Mrs. Alice Nare. The funeral was held from the home yesterday at 2 o'clock. Interment in Evergreen cemetery, Fonda, N. Y. Ellen Fonda Argersinger was born September 3, 1849, and has passed to the other life. We, her neighbors, friends and relatives, feel that she still lives for we have the assurance that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life. She spent her years almost entirely on the farm, situated two and a half miles north of the village which bears the name of her paternal ancester, Douw Fonda, "A Patriot," from whom she was descended through Lieut-Col. Adam Fonda and Brig. Gen. Henry Fonda, her grandfather. Her parents, Henry Douw Fonda and Phoebe Dillenbeck, the former a grandson of Marx Dockstader, one of the early Palatinates and a Revolutionary hero. She was indeed worthy of such parentage for she was diligent, courageous and loyal, giving her life in unceasing devotion to her church, home and family. Her absence will be keenly felt by not only her immediate relatives but by her neighbors and a large circle of friends. Gloversville NY Morning Herald, Wednesday, January 19, 1927.
