[[#William Brace Fonda|William Brace Fonda]] (b. 1879), Henry's father was enumerated in the Federal Census in 1900 living, as a single man, in Omaha, Douglas County, [[Nebraska]] with his own parents, and listed there as a salesman.  On 10 Jun 1903, William Fonda married [[#Herberta Jaynes|Herberta Jaynes]] (b. 1879), probably in or near Omaha, Nebraska.  Moving to Grand Island, Hall County, [[Nebraska]], they rented a house from Grand Island banker George Bell in 1904 and it was in that house that their eldest child Henry Fonda was born 16 May 1905.  They only lived there for six more months.  The house, marked as Henry Fonda's birthplace, was in 1966 relocated after Henry paid to have it moved from downtown, ten miles to the location at the Stuhr Museum ([http://www.newspaperarchive.com/PdfViewerTags.aspx?img=114970741&firstvisit=true&src=search&currentResult=3 ''Seguin Gazette Enterprise'' (Seguin, Texas), 13 Aug 1982, page 3]).

William and Herberta had two more children: Harriet in 1907/8 and Jayne in 1909/10, both born in Nebraska.  Between 1905 and 1910 the family had moved back to Omaha, where they are enumerated in the Federal Census that year.  Many years later, a newspaper article in which Henry talks about his father states "when he was six months old the family moved to Omaha".  It's not a direct quote from Henry however, so it's unclear what the source is for this fact.

Henry Fonda and Frances Seymour were the parents of actors [[Jane Fonda]] (b. 21 Dec 1937) and [[Peter Fonda]] (b. 23 Feb 1940).  Even though the family was living in California, Frances decided to go to New York to have each of her children Jane and later Peter.  So Jane was born in New York City by cesarean section at Doctor's Hospital (''My Life'', p40) while Henry was filming ''Jezebel'' with [[Bette Davis]].  William Wyler, the director of Jezebel, was none other than the next husband of Henry's ex-wife Margaret Sullavan.  William and Margaret had married at the end of 1934, but by the time of this film, were already divorced.  Watch two minutes of Jezebel [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XGivFuMQos here on YouTube].

Henry had had it written into his contract that if his wife gave birth while they were shooting ''Jezebel'', he could fly back to New York to be with them.  They named the child "Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda".  Jane comments in her biography, how her father stated that he took dozens of pictures while there at the hospital, and that she has them.  She wistfully comments that in none of these pictures is there one of her mother holding her.

==William Brace Fonda==
 
William Brace Fonda was born 12 Feb 1879 in Nebraska to Ten Eyck Fonda and his wife Harriet, who had moved there from their native New York.  In 1900 he was enumerated living with his parents in Omaha City, as a Salesman. He married Herberta Jaynes on 10 Jun 1903, probably in or near Omaha where they were both living.
 
 
They moved to Grand Island, Nebraska by 1904 where they rented a house and where their eldest son [[#Henry Jaynes Fonda|Henry Fonda]] was born 16 May 1905.  William and Herberta had two more children: Harriet in 1907/8 and Jayne in 1909/10, both born in Nebraska. Between 1905 and 1910 the family had moved back to Omaha, where they are enumerated in the Federal Census that year. Many years later, a newspaper article in which Henry talks about his father states "when he was six months old the family moved to Omaha". It's not a direct quote from Henry however, so it's unclear what the source is for this fact.
 
 
Some biographers have given the impression that William Fonda moved to Omaha and opened a print shop; however, William's occupation in 1900 was "Salesman", and in 1910 it was "Salesman, Advertising Jobber". In addition, the 1910 enumeration states specifically that he was an employee, not working on his own account. When he registered for the WWI Draft on Sep 1918, William then lists his occupation as self-employed Printer. In 1920 still in Omaha, William Fonda is now a "Proprietor, Commercial Print Shop".  However by 1930 William Fonda was a "Salesman" for "Oil Burner Company".
 
 
Henry's mother fell, broke her leg and developed a blood clot which killed her in October 1934. "I felt so bad that she didn't live to see me move ahead", he said in his biography. "...his father died two years later", states Sweeney.
 
 
Their daughter Harriet married a Mr. Peacock and stayed in Omaha.  Peter Fonda mentions his aunt Harriet Peacock visiting him at the Barton School for Boys when he was six in 1946/7 (''Don't Tell Dad'', p22-25).  He again mentions visiting he and his mother visiting Harriet, in Omaha the following year (''Don't Tell Dad'', p29).

==Herberta Jaynes==
 
Herberta Jaynes was born 26 Jun 1879 in St. Croix County, [[Wisconsin]], but by 1898 the family had moved to Omaha, Nebraska.  She married William Brace Fonda on 10 Jun 1903 probably in or near Omaha.
 
 
The family lived briefly in Grand Island, but by 1910 they are back living in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska.
 
 
Henry's mother fell, broke her leg and developed a blood clot which killed her in October 1934. "I felt so bad that she didn't live to see me move ahead", he said in his biography. "...his father died two years later", states Sweeney. Her obituary states that Herberta (Jaynes) Fonda died in 5 Oct 1934, at her home in Omaha.

==Ten Eyck Fonda==
 
Ten Eyck Fonda was born Dec 1839 in [[New York]] to native New York parents.  He married, about 1864 to Harriet somebody also a New York native.  They stayed in New York until at least 1871 when their son Ten Eyck Jr was born there, but by 1879 they had moved to Nebraska where their next surviving son William was born.  Out of their six children, four were yet living in 1900 when they are enumerated in Omaha where Ten Eyck Fonda is a Railroad Ticket Agent.
 
 
Ten Eyck and Harriet are yet living in Omaha in 1920 so it's probable that they both died there.
