    [George W. Fondy appeared in the 1860 US Federal Census for Murray, Calloway Co., KY as a farmhand in the household of Asa Humphreys. His birthplace is listed as IL and vital records indicate he married Phebe Ann Humphreys (b. Puryear, Henry Co., TN) on 11-Jan-1863 in Jonesboro, Union Co., IL. It is probable that George is the son of Isaac V. Fondy and Mary Jane Stubblefield, daughter of Jeremiah Stubblefield of Lincoln Co., TN. George W. could have been named after 1) Col. George Stubblefield (b.1738) who served in the VA Militia during the Revolutionary War under General George Washington 2) George Stubblefield, a Baptist preacher and the first Stubblefield settler in (Warren Co.) TN around 1800 or 3) simply after president George Washington himself. George W. Fondy enlisted as a bugler in Company M of the 6th IL Cavalry in 1861. His residence was listed as Johnson Co., IL. He was mustered out of that unit and then enlisted in the 128th IL Infantry at Camp Butler, IL in 1862. His residence was listed as Vienna, IL (residence of his possible step-mother). We suspect that his name was spelled "Fonda" and he went in as a Corporal in the 128th Infantry because the Post Commander at Camp Butler at that time was John G. Fonda. George W. Fondy's Pension documents spell his name "Fondy" and lists him in the 128th Infantry; he died of pneumonia at Nashville General Hospital Number 8 and is buried at the Nashville National Cemetery, TN.]
