Maria Van Schoonhoven Fonda
Maria Van Schoonhoven was born in August 1722. She was a younger daughter of one-time Albanty residents Jacobus and Susanna Bradt Van Schoonhoven who had re-located to a family farm at the Halfmoon by the time of her birth.
These Fondas made their home in the third ward where this Abraham was a tailor and city servant. At least two bachelor sons appear to have lived in their house.
The name of Abraham I. Fonda has not been encountered in the community-based record after 1788.
