Fonda household resided at Avasidale Avenue house 255. Henry Fonda (age 34, born in Nebraska) was the head of a very big household which included beyond Jayne and Peter Fonda the following members: Francis Fonda, wife, age 32, born in Canada; stepdaughter Frances Brokaw, at age 8, born in New York; Elisabeth Schneider, a cook, age 34, single, born in Michigan; Franz Schneider, a butler, age 39, born in Germany, married; Centa Schneider, born in Germany, age 42, waitress; Ruth Maxwell, age 23, nurse, born in Oklahoma, single; Therse Kazak, age 39, born in France, widowed, governess . The Census record is a very essential piece of information for Jane Fonda since as the household shows she lived in a big multicultural household of obviously rich family.
It is interesting that the family name was transcribed in the Census as “Fanda”, then, the search should be for Jayne Fanda or Henry Fanda.
