    [It is probable that Isaac V. Fondy and Vrooman Fondy are the same person, but the parents and place of birth (of either name) are not known. The residence of Vrooman Fondy was listed as Middleburgh, Schoharie Co., NY in his 1829 military enlistment and his age indicates a birthdate of about 1804. Neither name appears in any census records although prior to 1860 only heads of household are listed, with no ages or dates of birth. There are many Isaac Fondas found in New York around that time and none show a middle initial of V. Gertrude Hager Vrooman was born in Vroomansland (now Fulton), Schoharie Co., NY in 1769. She married Douw Isaac Fonda of Schaghticoke, Rensselaer Co., NY; although no children are found as issued from that marriage, Isaac V. could be their (undocumented) son; possibly named after Isaac Pieter Vrooman (b.1722), who was killed on October 24, 1781 in a Torie/Indian Raid at Vroomansland (now Fulton, Schoharie Co.), NY. Gertrude is the daughter of Jonas Adam Vrooman (b.1735, Vroomansland), a nephew of this Isaac Vrooman. Isaac V. Fondey (Fondy) is recorded as married to Mary Jane Stubblefield in Bond Co., IL on 14-Jan-1840. Although no records indicate any children issued, it is believed that Mary Jane died in the childbirth of George W. Fondy in 1840. Isaac remarried on 8-Dec-1844 in Goreville, Johnson Co., IL to Polly (Mary) Davis. Isaac V. Fondy had probate papers filed by her in June of 1852. Mary appears in the 1860 US Federal Census for Vienna, Johnson Co., IL, as wife of James P. Burns (2nd husband) with daughters Mary Ann and Delia Fonda, ages 14 and 10. Delia Hager is the mother of Gertrude Hager Vrooman, which would make her (possibly) the g-grandmother of these children. According to military records (per Joe Fondy, Redlands, CA), Vrooman Fondy lived in Schoharie Co., NY, Philadelphia, PA, St. Louis, MO, and Perry Co., IL. A record of his enlistment at Schoharie Co., NY in 1829 lists his age as 25 years old. He served at Fort Winnebago in 1829-1830 and his Certificate for Pension filled out by Horatio Newhall and Jefferson Davis dated 1830 lists his age as 26 years old. Other documents obtained from the National Archives show him signing his last name "Fondey." He was at Fort Winnebago when John H. Fonda was there. John H. Fonda enlisted about 7 weeks before Vrooman and they both were enlisted by LT Elias Phillips at Albany. Vrooman Fondy moved West in late 1837 or early 1838, and there are two applications of his transfer of pension dated 1838 and 1849. According to National Archives records roll T718, he collected his pension in MO until September 1847 and in IL until September 1851.]
