HI Mark,
Very interesting reading...., I have Hesters parents as being Douwe Pietersz b: 1578 Koudom Friesland Netherlands and her mother being Marritje Gerrits b: 1579 Amsterdam Netherlands. I wonder from reading the passage from the book, if those names were excluded because the kids did not want their parents involved or if they were dead at the time they wanted to wed. Maybe since she was about 24 when they married she had been married before and her real madien name was never mentioned. I have even run into that senerio looking up folks in the 1800's. LMK what you think.
I had also heard that story about the Fonda name meaning "money bags" and being from Italy. I read Henry's bio to find insite but nothing new was there either. So at this point we dont know where the Fondas originated. Have you ever looked up the Italian theory?
