I don't have an exact match for a Rebecca Fonda (1811-1844) who married a Henry Groesbeck but there are a few possibilities if some of your data is not quite correct. None of them appear to have been born or lived in Saratoga County.

1. Rebecca Vandenberg FONDA (1806- ) no marriage info. bp. Cohoes, Albany Co., NY

2. Rebecca Becker FONDA (1807- ) no marriage info. bp. Mayfield, Fulton Co., NY
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...

3. Rebecca Bogaert FONDA (1789-1855) no marriage info. b. Albany, Albany Co., NY

4. Rebecca Groesbeck FONDA (1787- ) no marriage info. b. Schaghticoke, Rensselaer Co., NY
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...

5. Maria Groesbeck FONDA (1775-1845) m. Abraham GROESBECK b. Schaghticoke, Rensselaer Co., NY
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...
her mother is Rebecca GROESBECK (Maria is the sister of #4)

If you do in fact have a new person identified, please get back to me.

Regards,
A. Mark Fonda

Thanx for getting back so quickly. I did browse your tree previously but didn't think any matched up with what I've been given. This is the family of my father's sister's husband's sister's husband...his info shows Henry Groesbeck (10/7/1809 (Cambridge, NY) - 1897 (Isabella Co MI)) and Rebecca Fondah (5/3or8/1811 - 6/12/1844 (both Stillwater, Saratoga, NY)) were married 7/21/1830 in Saratoga, NY. Their daughter, Lucy Ann (b 1843 NY), married one Lewis Egleston in 1861 in Clinton Co, MI. Lucy Ann's full siblings were Isaac (abt 1831NY), Charles (abt 1833NY), Mariah (abt 1835NY), Lewis (abt 1837NY) and Mary E (abt 1839NY). Henry's 2nd wife was a Lydia Ingersoll (B abt 1807 NY). In the 1850 census they're located in Aurelius, Ingham Co, MI, wrongly indexed as Grovesbeck. The 1820 Saratoga NY census shows 4 Fonda's with females under age 10, Isaac D, Daniel, Cornelius & John O. Are you familiar with any of them?

Let me know if you come up with anything, and thanx again!

Unfortunately, so am I! Have you had any luck at all since you posted this?

One of my Great-Great-Great-Grandmothers was (I hope I counted that right) Catherine Maria/Mariah Groesbeck Burns. I think I've looked at the same census records you have, trying to figure out who Rebecca's parents might have been in the Stillwater, Saratoga Co., NY area in 1820/1830 (based on the statement in the Isabella Co Inquirer obit for Henry Groesbeck about their origins). I'm a stitcher, in addition to being far too buried in genealogy, and am trying to do something called a 'Mother Tree' - which is direct female line only. I'm wistfully hoping someone knows Rebecca's father's name, so I have at least a CHANCE of finding her mother's name.

Hi! I'm glad someone else is giving mother's the recognition they deserve! But boy are they hard to trace! I'm still hunting for Rebecca, off & On ... but have had to move on, or go crazy! Let me know, please, if you turn anything up, and I'll certainly do the same!
Thanx!
Mary
