William Briece Fonda

  • Birth 22 May 1835
  • Death 29 Apr 1919
  • Burial Fonda, Montgomery County, New York, USA

William Briece Fonda died Tuesday afternoon at 4:15 o'clock, in his 84th year, at the home of Mrs. Mary J. Snell, where he had lived since the death three years ago, of his niece, Miss Mary B. Cushney. Mr. Fonda was the son of G. B. T. Fonda and Rachael Polhemus, of Auriesville, his wife, and was born In the Fonda homestead on Main street; May 22, 1835. He came of a Colonial family, his grand sires being the founders of this, his native town, and his ripe old age showed the hardy stock from which he had sprung. Mr. Fonda had held many responsible positions with different railroad companies, having been the first express agent on the New York Central at Fonda, and most of his life had been spent out of Fonda. About seven years ago he returned to his native town and has since made his home here. He was a quiet, unassuming man, an old fashioned gentleman, and many will miss his familiar figure and kindly greeting. He is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Henry Brevoort Cushney, of New Haven, Conn., and the Misses Mary and Gertrude Fonda, Fonda; two brothers, Henry Ten Eyck Fonda, of Omaha, Neb., and Isaac Fonda, of Fonda; also several nieces and nephews. The funeral will be held at the home of Mrs. Snell, Thursday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, and burial will be in the family plot, Caughnawaga cemetery. Amsterdam Evening Recorder, Wednesday, April 30, 1919.
