    [Christian Intelligencer of the Reformed Dutch Church - March 11, 1869 - Dr. A. J. Fonda died at his residence in Schenectady on Thursday afternoon, March 4th, aged 84 years.

    [By Larry Hart, Gazette Reporter - Several weeks of painstaking research by Dr. Louis Navias of 37 Front street has corrected a misconception generally shared by local historians concerning the former county property known as the "county annex." (...) These are just a few of the pertinent facts as regards the site of the county building: On May 1, 1838, the county purchased from Alexander G. Fonda and Hannah Edgar Fonda of Rotterdam some property next to the Mohawk Bank (later to become the Mohawk Club at the northwest corner of Union and Church streets.) The lot was 60 by 33 feet. The first mention of a "wood building" was in a deed of March 15, 1855 between Annabella Fonda and Chuncey Vibbard concerning a property transaction. It read, in part... "the northwesterly corner of the wood house, at present used as a county clerk and surrogates office." On May 25, 1869, the County of Schenectady purchased from Miss Annabella E. Fonda another portion of property adjacent to the west of the county site for the sum of $5,000. Schenectady Gazette, March 26, 1965]
