 The Fontanet Chronicles:

The History of Fontanet Indiana

Hello and Welcome, 

My name is Mary Ann Knott-Bagley, I can trace my family history 5 generations back currently in Fontanet history. 

Fontanet's History is important and needs to be preserved. What turned out to be my curiosity about my heritage and what I thought I knew about Fontanet has opened a door to what Fontanet use to be. It was a busy town that was more than just a post office, tavern and a once-a-year bean dinner. 

 Taking up where the Legends like Joseph Koch left off, with guidance from family members memories of the past and Dot Lewis's expertise I hope to create a site for future generations to trace their heritage and see Fontanet in a whole new way.
