Fonda family - help needed!

Surnames: Fonda
I'm the daughter of Carl Fonda (1927-2002 Scotia, NY). He had one brother, Eugene (living in Amsterdam, NY) two sister, June (who died at age 14 in Schenectady, NY probably in the 1930's) and sister, Dorothy (dec'd). Their father, Eugene Fonda died in 1927 - one month before my father was born. Eugene's siblings were Peter, Jacob and Minnie, their father's name was Peter (we believe born in the 1890's. They lived in the Schenectady, Troy, NY area. Peter was married to Katherine. Peter also had four or five brothers, most of whom relocated to Nebraska. Peter's mother's name (so we've been told) was Bridget. My father indicated that we were not related to the Fondas of Fonda, NY. If anyone knows of my branch of the Fonda tree, please write. As my grandfather died before my father was born, much of the Fonda lore was lost. Would love to hear anything!

Judy, most of the Fondas that I know of were here in the early 1600's. They settled in Beverick, New Amsterdam, and Albany NY. Afterwards going else where in the USA.
