Catskill Village Cemetery, Catskill, Greene Co., NY (Fonda, Abraham, 9 Oct 1845, 32 yrs - the death date seems to match this person, but the age of 32 yrs does not); [R038a] The Fonda Family; [Harmony Lodge Papers - No. 6 - January 15, 1863 - Transcribed by Arlene Goodwin - There are but few more among, the signers of the by-laws of Harmony Lodge, whom I knew so well as to enable me to frame from their histories and sketch which would be interesting to the readers of the Recorder. Yet, I still recur to the time-stained package with mixed emotions of pleasure and sadness - that pleasure which we all have in the remembrance of earlier and happier days - that sadness which we all feel as the records bring home to our hearts the realization that the years have passed over us, and that we are old. (...) There was old Captain Drake - we used to call him Admiral - who became blind, and died in the Alms-house. Abram J. Fonda, Captains, Campbell, Britton, Ben. Hyde, and a host of others. These four were good story-tellers, the three last named being renowned for veracity, and they kept their reputations bright by the frequent recital of the wonders they had seen on the great deep, and in the far-off islands of the sea. (...) Brommy Fonda dealt less in the Gulliverean line, though he could tell some good stories. I remember an incident in the early life of Thurlow Weed, which he related, but which I would not repeat here it if probability had not been confirmed by a recent letter of Mr. Weed's, declining a public reception in New York in which he mentions having first visited that city as a cabin boy of a Catskill sloop. Fonda, who was sailing-master or skipper of the vessel, was one morning engaged in conversation with some of the passengers, when Thurlow, intent - as he even now is - upon acquiring useful information, stood listening with curious visage and tea-kettle in hand, to the colloquy. Being observed by Fonda, he was sharply rebuked, and ordered to duty. - Frightened and disconcerted by the reprimand, instead of filling his tea-kettle, he incontinently threw it overboard - a feat which, about these days, he seems desirous to perform for the Abolition branch of the Republican party.] >> <<
