In the 1900 census in Athens Village, Calhoun Co. MI (ED28, Sh3B, L71, dw83, fam84) is the household of Isabel H. Fonda, widow, presumably Isabel Howard, the widow of Alfred S. Fonda. In that household are her daughter Myrtella (b. May 1885), her son Howard E. (age 13 b. Oct 1886), and her mother, Alcina C. Blanchard.
Isabell is still in Athens Village in 1910 with Martella and Alcina Blanchard, but no Howard.
Are any of the following the same Howard as the above?
1910: Howard Fonda in Chicago, a lodger with Robert J. Wagner. He is a architectural draftsman, age 22 b. MI, single.
