Abstract:

Correspondence and various land, legal, and financial papers, 1736-1870, of the Fonda family of the Mohawk Valley in New York State; principally including the papers of Douw Fonda, of Albany; Henry Fonda, of Johnston, New York; and Jellis and Peter H. Fonda, both of Caughnawaga (later Fonda), New York.

Papers of Douw Fonda include ca. 60 pieces of correspondence and a few papers, 1736-1822, chiefly concerning the surveying, sale, and rental of lands. Correspondents include several residents of Western Massachusetts, including many from Alexander St. John, of Northampton. Papers of General Henry Fonda include letters, receipts, bills, etc., 1808-1841, mostly sent to him in his capacity as brigadier general of the 11th Brigade of the New York State Militia. Military documents concern orders, resignations, commissions, elections, and charges of disobedience and neglect of duty brought against Gen. Henry Fonda in 1823. Also included is a license to sell wines and spirits, issued to Fonda in 1817. Papers pertaining to Indian trader, general store owner, and military officer Jellis Fonda of Fonda, New York, include correspondence and a few land and legal papers, 1766-1807, pertaining to the sale and transport of various trade goods, complaints against debtors lodged by Fonda in the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas, and land titles and conveyances. A few items contain references to relations with the Indians, including a letter of Sept. 13, 1774, addressed by Jellis Fonda to [Stefanes Degroa?] regarding the cleaning and sale of ginseng and his recommendations concerning the hiring of local Indians to harvest the plant; a letter to Chief Joseph Brant, June 16, 1790, concerning Fonda's disputed claim to lands in New York State; and a letter of Mar. 19, 1779, to James Clinton, concerning the construction of a block house in Sacandaga, New York, to protect the region from the depredations of the Indians and enemy forces entering the area from Canada. Fonda refers to the large number of Tories residing in the area, recent attacks on settlements, prisoners taken by the enemy, and the threat posed by neighboring Mohawk Indians. Other items include land and legal papers, including a land patent for a tract of property in Montgomery County, issued to Jellis Fonda in 1786; records of complaints lodged by Fonda in the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas; an abstract of accounts with Tories kept by the New York State Treasurer, 1784; and a diary kept by Jellis Fonda during the expedition of Sir William Johnson and Gen. Jeffrey Amherst against Montreal, June-Oct, 1760, including a list of the Indians who accompanied them, plus some personal accounts. Papers of Peter H. Fonda include 65 receipts, invoices, letters, accounts, etc, 1814-1870, many pertaining to the settlement of accounts and the 11th Brigade of the New York Militia. Military papers pertain to elections, resignations, payment of bounties, etc.; financial documents concern personal and household expenses and routine financial transactions. Additional items relate to various members of the Fonda family, including affidavits of Cornelius Fonda and his wife, Elizabeth, of Claverack, New York, recounting the jail break of Archibald Lemon from the Claverack goal in 1788.
