    [He Left Fortune To His Bride - Now Niece Would Break The Will in New York Courts - New York, May 21 (1920) - The suit of Miss Florence Durant, of Saratoga, to break the will of her uncle, Abraham G. Fonda, who died July 11 in Brooklyn, two weeks after his marriage to Mrs. Rhoda Hunt, opened in the Brooklyn Supreme Court Thursday. In her affidavit, Miss Durant says that her uncle was 76 years old when he died; that he was a cigar manufacturer in Brooklyn, where he accumulated a fortune of $100,000. Mrs. Fonda is just 40. The affidavit alleges that the wedding took place June 28, 1919, and that immediately afterwards Fonda was assisted by two men to the Terminal Building, just across the street, where in a lawyer's office a will was drawn up leaving his entire estate consisting of $50,000 in cash and $50,000 in bonds to his bride. At the time of his death two weeks later Fonda's relatives asked District Attorney Lewis to investigate, and Medical Examiner Wuerst; after an autopsy, certified that death was due to heart disease. The first witness was Miss Mary Phelan, of Passaic, N. J., who testified that some months before Mrs. Fonda married, she assisted the witness at the latter's apartment, in Brooklyn. At that time, Miss Phelan said Mrs. Fonda, then Mrs. Hunt, said: "I know a nice old man who wants to make love to me. He has lots of money. If he does it will cost him all he has. I will introduce you to him and maybe you can get some also." Miss Phelan said she declined the introduction. Gettysburg Times, 1920-05-21]

    [Kindness Termed A Fraud - Court Intimates He Will Decide for Plaintiffs In Fonda Will Suit - At the conclusion of the suit brought by the relatives of Abraham Fonda, the 77-year-old Civil War veteran, to annul his marriage to Mrs. Rhoda Hunt Fonda and set aside his will made on the day of hIs marriage. Justice Stephen Callaghan, in the Supreme Court in Brooklyn yesterday, intimated that he would give a decision for the plaintiffs. "It seems to me," said the Justice, "that Fonda was unduly influenced, by indirection, and that the defendant, now his widow, entered into what was a clever scheme to gain possession of his property. I believe Fonda at all times was in his right mind, but I think also that this woman, in her relatlons to him, was not actuated entirely by love, but that her kindness really constituted a fraud." Justice Callaghan ordered both sides to submit briefs. Published: May 22, 1920, The New York Times]
