Hello "mollybar" - Just ran across your message. I'd love to know who those many Mississippi Fonda's are. Perhaps they're relatives. My mother (Janie Lou Fonda Brasher), grandfather (Anthony Caesar Fonda), great-grandfather (Charles Henry Fonda) and great-great grandfather (Anthony Cornelius Fonda) lived in and around Charleston, Mississippi. Anthony Cornelius (originally from New York) was the first School Superintendent of Tallahatchie county. Were you successful in tracing or connecting the 'Holland' Fonda's and 'Italian' Fonda's?
