Notes for Henry Fonde:
Henry Fonde, son of Charles Henry Fonde and Elizabeth McClester, was educated in the public schools in Mobile, AL and became a civil engineer. He was general agent for the the Executive Department of the Southern Railway Co. Through his employment with the Southern Railway, Henry Fonde supervised the installation of a railroad track to a coal-mining community in Kentucky which was later named Fonde after him. There is also a mountain nearby named Fonde mountain. This community is located about half way between Jellico, TN and Middlesboro, KY, almost on the state line. Mining operations were shut down in the 1970's but Fonde still exists, though only about a half dozen families live there.

  Notes for Alice Broun:
Alice Broun had red hair. According to her granddaughter, Frankie Fonde Brogan, Alice Broun Fonde was a remarkable woman who went on an interior trip of Africa when over 65 years of age, during which she painted pictures of many African plants and flowers, describing them with their Latin names. She was a great gardener and botanist and a fount of information on almost any subject. She suffered from Parkinson's disease in her later years but never lost her mental faculties.
