This was probably Jellis Fonda b: 1727 d:1791 of Caughnawaga. He was a Tryon County judge late in his life. Are you interested in selling the letter?

I would like to crosscheck some info. I have the following;
Maritje Vrooman b:mar 24, 1699 d: Jan 30, 1756
daughter of Adam Vrooman and Grietje Takelse Heemstraat, no other info available.
I have a total,of 8 children for Douw Fonda and Maritje Vrooman:
Jelles Fonda b:March 24, 1727
Adam #1 Fonda b:December 1730 Died Young
Adam#2 Fonda b:1732 Died Young
Margrietje Fonda b:November 10, 1734
Adam D. Fonda b:October 26, 1736
Peter(Pieter) Fonda b:January 07, 1738/39
Johannes (John) D. Fonda b:March 08, 1740
Rachel Fonda b:Abt. 1749

The last child seems to be born a little late so I am questioning this one. Also for Adam Fonda and Neeltie Briese I have a total of 7 children:
Henry A. Fonda b:August 20, 1762
Maria A. Fonda b:May 12, 1764
John Fonda b:January 1768?
Wyntje Fonda b:May 23, 1768?
Douw Adam Fonda b:December 30, 1774
Adam Fonda b:Abt. 1776
Isaac Fonda b:Abt. 1778
Some of these dates also don't look right so I have to check sources.

Here’s what I have for those two families; I took this verbatim from the notes of my Great-Aunt Cornelia Dockstader Fonda, written in 1940. Your suspicion appears to be right about some errors in your information.
