Henry Fonde, son of Charles Henry Fonde and Elizabeth McClester, was educated in the public schools in Mobile, Alabama and became a civil engineer. He was general agent for the the Executive Department of the Southern Railway Co. Through his employment with the Southern Railway, Henry Fonde supervised the installation of a railroad track to a coal-mining community in Kentucky which was later named Fonde after him. There is also a mountain nearby named Fonde mountain. This community is located about half way between Jellico, TN and Middlesboro, KY, almost on the state line. Mining operations were shut down in the 1970's but Fonde still exists, though only about a half dozen families live there. Ref: Ancestors of Charles Henry Fonde website.
