Douw I. Fonda was christened in July 1709. He was the son of Isaac and Alida Lansing Fonda. He grew up in a businessman's home in the third ward.

In March 1727, he married Aaltie (Alida) Ouderkerk at the Albany Dutch church. Beginning in 1728, their children were christened in the church where both parents were frequent baptism sponsors and thus active at least as late as 1754.

These young Fondas were Albany residents. In September 1733, Douwe Isaacse was named high constable.[1] He probably was the "Douwe Fonda" who was elected assistant alderman for the second ward in September 1736.[1] In July 1737, that individual purchased a lot in the second ward along the east side of Pearl Street and next to the property of Jan Maase.[2] The council minutes further described the property and set the terms of sale. He also was re-elected assistant alderman in 1737.

In 1741, he was named a partner in the Sacandaga Patent.

Additional community-based information exists for Douw Fonda. However, at this point, we will step away from this particular Douw lest we further confuse the issues. See another "Douw I. Fonda".
