Kenosha, WI; bur. Hillside Cemetery, Whitewater, WI; [Died - Fonda - At this home in Whitewater, of paralysis, on Sunday, March 15, Lorenzo D. Fonda at the age of 63 years and two months. Mr. Fonda was born in the town of Fonda, N. Y., January 10, 1828. He learned the printing business and came west at an early age. In July, 1851, he married Miss Hattie Weeks at her home in Lyones of this county. For a time he conducted a paper in West Bend in this state. In 1872 he came to Whitewater and for eleven years was a valuable helper in the Register office, being foreman a portion of the time. As we pen this notice our mind reverts with sincere pleasure to those years of association. About eight years ago he suffered a slight stroke of paralysis which was repeated at intervals. Though suffering so seriously in health he continued to do such work as he could to the last. For several years he had charge of the east side school building, and a touching tribute to his genial, kindly nature was given by the children who contributed many rare and beautiful flowers to deck the casket. His last illness continued but three days and he was unconscious the entire time. Rev. A. J. Benjamin conducted the funeral on Tuesday afternoon, March 17. The burial was in Hillside cemetery. There were present the following relatives from abroad: D, D, Van Tyne and M. Ross and wives of Milwaukee, W. G. Weeks and Mrs. J. Harris, of Delavan, Miss Fanny Weeks, of Lyons. The surviving family consists of Mrs. Fonda, four sons, Earl V., of Sierra valley, Cal., Edward D., of Denver, Arthur S., of Milwaukee, Elmer E., of Whitewater, and one daughter, Hattie. All were present at the funeral but the two older sons.] >> <
