He was then in the employ of W%orthington & Son, hardware merchants, for 13 years, obtaining a knowledge of the business, and such an extensive acquaintance with the community as warranted him in 1885 in establishing his present business at 70 East Main street, where he is engaged in handling all kinds of hardware, stoves, furnaces, and house furnishing goods, having built up a good trade. In 1877 Mr. Fonda married Miss Nellie A. Sheldon, daughter of F. G. Sheldon, of Monroe County, and they have three children, Maud, Roy, and Ethel. The family are Presbyterians.
