Thanks for your reply. I have a direct line to Henry Fonda and his wife Frances Ford Seymour, the actor from his Douw Fonda and my Van Ornum family of Essex County,New York. Henry's ancestor was Hester Fonda, daughter of Douw Jellise Fonda and his wife Rebecca Conyn. Hester's brother Jellis Fonda was my 7th g uncle, with Douw being my direct 7th g grandfather making Jane Fonda and her brother Peter, my 8th cousins directly. The Van Ornums of mine settled in Russell,St. Lawrence County,New York where I tie into the Knox and Conant Family of Salem,Mass fame. Roger Conant was my 9th g grandfather. My grandmother of Hermon,St. Lawrence County,NY was Eva Conant. Thanks for your input, Ted Bates
