Death of Peter Fonda - Under our obituary head will be observed an announcement of the death of Peter Fonda, one of our oldest citizens. He died yesterday, aged 63 years. Mr. F. was born in Troy, in the old house near the Catholic Burial Ground, on Ida Hill, now occupied by Mr. Seneca. He was the oldest butcher here, having kept a stall in our markets over forty years. Mr. Fonda was an upright citizen; he possessed a noble, generous heart, and in his time has done much in helping the poor, and in alleviating the distresses of the unfortunate. Many have been helped by his kindly hand to business positions from which they have derived a competence. Much good, many acts of true charity, have been performed by Peter Fonda in his quiet way, and with a free and liberal heart. He was always industrious—always at work. Contented in his humble station, Peter Fonda had smiles for all, a good word and a blessing for every one with whom he came in contact. A good citizen and an honest man is gone. Blessed be his memory. Troy Daily Times. December 7, 1857
