    [from Kelsey Ref: John Lawrence Fonda, husband of Helen (Kelsey) Fonda, was captain of a sailing vessel, residing at Poughkeepsie, NY. It has been stated by some of the descendants that his residence was at one time in San Francisco, Calif. As the husband died in 1842, it does not seem probable that the statement applies to him, so it is assumed that his wife survived him and lived with her son, William Thomas, who mgrated to California.]

    [An Historical Address Delivered before the Dutchess County Medical Society at its Centennial Meeting, at Vassar Institute January 10th, 1906 - The first evidence of real public spirit was shown by the society in 1812, when a committee of three was appointed to publish such information as it may be able to obtain in regard to the nature and methos of treatment of the prevailing epidemic... This epidemic was one of Cerebro-spinal Meningitis, or Spotted Fever. In a letter written by Captain Fonda (John L.), the grandfather of the present Cashier of the Merchants' Bank (Walter C. Fonda), to Dr. William Thomas, then in the army and stationed at Baton Rouge, he describes the scourge, and says that there has been forty deaths a;ready from it in the town. Poughkeepsie at that time had less than three thousand inhabitants, and forty deaths was a high percentage of mortality.]
