He was a farmer, cattleman, and cattle dealer. In early life he lived on the "Sand Hill" farm in Penn Township, once owned by his father but now owned by Eugene Gemberling. About 1900 or shortly before William moved to a large farm near New Columbia in Union County, but when he retired from farm­ing he moved to Milton. He was a member of the Lutheran Church and the Republican Party and held several offices in Penn Township.

                            168.  Annie Fisher, Wife of Henry Chapman  **

 

            Annie Fisher (daughter of George, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Penn Township, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on October 30, 1854. Her mother was Susan Snyder. Early in life she was afflicted in one of her limbs and was lame during her life, but withall, was able to walk long distances and get around as well as many people who do not have a handicap. She was a very regular attendant and member of the First Lutheran Church, which her grand father and great-grandfather helped to found. For many years she was an officer and teacher in the Sunday School and an excellent musician, who served as organist and pianist at many meetings. Even in her older days she is still an ac­tive member of an organized Sunday school class and of the missionary society of her church. Surely it can be said of her that she went around doing good. From the time of the organization of the Fisher Fam­ily Reunion at Selinsgrove in 1907, she has been treasurer of the organization, and a better treasurer could not be desired. For many years she was also a member of the executive committee of the reunion association, and her wise and helpful counsels were of great value. The writer, who has lived near her for some years and known her since early childhood, is willing to vouch for her kindness and Christian fi­delity. She is the owner of the John Adam Fisher Bible and has a few other relics of the older Fisher genera­tions. In 1908 she married Henry Chapman, a widower, who died some years later. She was never married before. Henry Chapman had children by his previous marriage, one of whom married into the Fisher family. Mrs. Chapman has always been noted for the even tenor of her ways and for her unpub­lished charities. She lives at the corner of East Pine and Second Streets, on the Isle of Que in Selins­grove, Pa., in a house which, it is said, was built by Captain John Conrad Weiser, grandson of the Great Conrad Weiser. **

                            170.  George P. Fisher  ( 1860 -    ?    )  **

            George P. Fisher (son of George, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Penn Township, Snyder County, Pa., on June 9, 1860.  In early 1935 he was living at the corner of Pine and Front Streets, on the Isle of Que, Selinsgrove, Pa., just one block from his sister, Mrs. Chapman. George's mother was Susan Snyder. He has been employed at various jobs, but principally at some form of agriculture. Even though George is now nearly 75 years old, the writer has seen him go to work  early every summer morning on the land which he owns on the island opposite Selinsgrove in the Susquehanna River . George was a very strong man in his younger days and could lift a prodigious load. Even at his present age, he is able to strike his axe as deeply into a log as many a younger man. The writer lives just two doors from this man and has always known him as a kindly and helpful neighbor and kinsman. George has always been a strong Republican. On March 6, 1890, he married Etta Sigfried of Selins­grove. She was born in Selinsgrove on October 10, 1862, and is a sister to Hiram and Edward Sigfried, the apple growers. George Fisher spent a number of years in Los Angeles, California, but returned to live in Selinsgrove more than a decade ago.

            Clara Fisher (daughter of George, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Penn Township, Snyder County, Pa., in 1862. Her mother was Susan Snyder. Early in life she joined the First Lutheran Church of Selinsgrove and has always been one of the congregations most active mem­bers. She was a regular attendant at church and Sunday school service and whenever any work needed doing she was one of the first to offer her services. On December 30, 1885, she married John Thompson, a widower, and for a number of years they resided on a farm just west of Selinsgrove, but the later years of their life were spent at their residence on Market Street in Selinsgrove. After the death of her husband, she lived with her daughter Mary. Mrs. Thompson is buried at Selinsgrove. **

                            173. Mary A. Fisher, Wife of Rev. Robert F. Fetterolf  **

 

            Mary A. Fisher (daughter of George, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born on the Fisher farm in Penn Township, Snyder County, Pa., on April 29, 1866. Mary was the youngest child of George Fisher and his second wife, Susan Snyder. Early in life Mary became a member of the Lutheran Church. She attended the local public schools and on June 28, 1892, married the Rev. Robert F. Fetterolf, a Lutheran Minister, at Selinsgrove, Pa.

            In 1907 Mrs. Fetterolf became one of the organizers of the Annual Fisher Reunion held at or near Selinsgrove and for most of the period to date (1935) she served as corresponding secretary. She and her sister, Mrs. Chapman, studied the old Fisher Bible in Mrs. Chapman's possession, translated the informa­tion therein, collected names, constructed trees with trunks, branches, twigs, and leaves, and wrote the names therein. Thus came into being the famous Fisher Family Trees which are so proudly dis­played at every Fisher reunion. In constructing these, Mrs. fetterolf was assisted by her children and hus­band. Many of the names on the trees were filled in by Rev. Fetterolf and Dr. George H. Fisher, presi­dent of the reunion. Later ones were added by Dr. Charles A. Fisher, for many years recording secretary but now Historian of the family. Mrs. Fetterolf was one of the most regular attendants at  the reunion and has done much to keep it alive.

            Rev. Robert P. Fetterolf, husband of Mary Fisher, was born in Centre County, Pa., on April 8, 1862. He attended the local schools in his home section and then became a student at Missionary Insti­tute, now Susquehanna University, at Selinsgrove, Pa. From there he went to Gettysburg College, where he graduated with the A.B. degree in 1889. Later the A.M. degree was also conferred upon him. In 1892 he was graduated from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg and in the same year he was or­dained a Lutheran minister. He served the White Deer charge in Union County and charges at Millers­burg, Mercersburg, and several other places. Because of failing health, Rev. Fetterolf retired from the ministry for awhile but later entered the teaching profession, serving as principal of the Lewis Township High School at Millmont for a number of years. At the time of his death, he was principal of the Liver­pool High School in Perry County. While teaching he occasionally filled Lutheran pulpits as a supply. Much of the earlier work on the Fisher family trees was done by Rev. Fetterolf. He died suddenly of a heart attack at his home in Selinsgrove on September 3, 1928, and is buried in the Union Cemetery there. In 1935, Mrs. Fetterolf was living with her daughter Mrs. J.M. Riden in Lewistown, Pa.  **

Frank L. Fisher Funeral Saturday

Well Known Banker Dies of Illness Following Hemorrhage; 72 Years Old.

 

            Funeral services for Frank L. Fisher; 72, president of the East Tennessee National bank since 1894, highly esteemed citizen, active churchman, and prominently identified with the financial and busi­ness interests of Knoxville [Tennessee] for more than 40 years, who died Thursday afternoon at 2:50 o'clock at the Dr. Reese Patterson hospital in the Acuff building following a brief illness; will be con­ducted Satur­day afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the late home, 516 W. Vine Ave., Rev. Horace Cady Wil­son, D.D., pastor of the Second Presbyterian church, will officiate, and burial will follow in Old Gray cemetery.

            Mr. Fisher had not enjoyed the best of health for the past few years but had been active in busi­ness. He was stricken with a hemorrhage of the nose last Saturday. He was taken to the hospital Sunday and his condition was considered serious. He rallied slightly Wednesday and Thursday morning his condi­tion was considered better and he was reported resting comfortably. Thursday afternoon he began to sink and he passed away peacefully at 2:50 o'clock.

            Mr. Fisher was one of the best known bankers in Tennessee and the south. He was a man who was many times asked by business men for advice and counsel. His ability as a business man as well as a banker made him one of the outstanding business men of Knoxville. He was quiet and unassuming, a man who loved his home and manifested great interest in Knoxville during the many years that he has resided here.

Born in Pennsylvania

            Mr. Fisher was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, near Mecklenburg, February 25, 1853. When he was 15 years of age, he moved with his parents to Hamblen county and resided on a farm near Russellville. He received his early education in the county schools and took advantage of every opportu­nity to prepare himself for a business career.

            He came to Knoxville when a young man and secured his first employment as bookkeeper for Carpenter and Ross, wholesale grocers. In 1879, he secured a position as bookkeeper at the East Ten­nessee National bank. His ability coupled with the determination to make good and the close attention he paid to his duties attracted the attention of the directors and officials of the bank and he was elected cashier of the institution. September 6, 1883. Mr. Fisher's careful attention to his duties as cashier of the bank and his ability to make friends and please the patrons of the bank made him popular with the busi­ness men of Knoxville and the depositors of the bank. After serving the bank as cashier for ;more than 10 years, he was elected president of the bank, May 9, 1894, which position he held with honor until the time of his death.

Developed Business

            Mr. Fisher gave practically all his life to the development of the East Tennessee National Bank. His ability as an organizer and counselor was recognized by the citizens and business men of Knoxville and he was often urged to accept public positions but always declined. He was known to  the business men and his associates as a man of unusual executive ability and his courteous manner won him a host of friends.

            In addition to being president of the bank he was also prominently connected with various busi­ness concerns of Knoxville and for many years has been a member of the board of directors of several of the business concern, corporations and institutions of Knoxville. At the time of his death, he was a mem­ber of the board of directors of the Fidelity Trust company, Knoxville Power and Light, Standard Knit­ting mills, Cherokee Knitting mills, Harvey Coal company, Knoxville Knitting mills and other corpora­tions.

Active in Religious Life        

            From early childhood, Mr. Fisher has always exhibited interest in religious work. For many years he has been an active member of the Second Presbyterian church and was a consistent attendant at practically all Sabbath day services. He gave freely of his money to all worthy charitable causes and for the advancement of the church.

            Mr. Fisher was united in marriage on February 6, 1883, to Miss Ella Locke, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. E.C. Locke, well known residents of Knoxville for many years.

            Surviving the deceased are his widow; two sisters, Mrs. James Rubel, Louisburg, Pa., and Mrs. Utsman, who lives with her daughter, Mrs. C. A. Beard at Athens, Tenn; also a brother J.N. Fisher, well known resident of Morristown, who is president of the City National bank of that city.

            Mr. Fisher for many years has resided at the Fisher homestead, 516 West Vine avenue. Col C.H. Harvey, a brother-in-law of Mr Fisher, and a daughter, Miss Edith Harvey, have made their home with Mr and Mrs. Fisher.

            Scores of friends called at the Fisher home Thursday and today to extend their heartfelt sympa­thy to members of the family during their hours of bereavement and sorrow. In the death of Mr. Fisher, Knoxville loses one of its best known, most highly respected citizens and a business man whose place in life will be difficult to fill.

Obituary of Mrs. Ella Locke Fisher, Wife of Frank Luther Fisher, as it appeared in the Knoxville, Ten­nessee, newspaper on January 2, 1950. Mrs. Fisher died January 1, 1950, and was buried on January 2, 1950.

 

Mrs. Fisher, Helper of Youth, Dies at 91

Late Banker's Widow Was Pillar in Church

 

            Mrs. Ella Locke Fisher, widow of Frank L. Fisher, who was president of the former East Tenn­essee National Bank, and herself a modest, tireless benefactor of Presbyterian school students and in Presbyte­rian mission activities, died yesterday at her home at 118 Towanda Trail. She was 91.

            Mrs. Fisher had been in poor health and inactive the last several years. She was born in Rogersville, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.C. Locke, of prominent  Massachusetts families. Her family moved here when she was a year old.

Survivors Listed

            Kindly, white-haired, Mrs. Fisher leaves one sister, Mrs Ralph Mountcastle, of Knoxville; four nieces, Mrs. Merrill D. Arnold and Miss Edith Harvey, Knoxville; Mrs Robert Snowden Hughes, Ark., and Mrs. A.C. Neave, New Canaan, Conn.; and a nephew, Frank Mountcastle, of Elizabeth, N.J.

            Services were this afternoon at the Mann Chapel. The officiating minister was Dr. Clifford Bar­bour, pastor of Second Presbyterian Church of which Mrs. Fisher was a member and sparking force for 74 years. Burial in Old Gray Cemetery.

Church Worker in Teens

            Over the years many distinctions in church and church mission programs came to the gentle Knoxville woman. She turned her attention to that field while in her teens, after attending boarding schools in the East. During almost three quarters of a century at Second Presbyterian, Mrs. Fisher had held virtually every office open to a woman member.

            She organized the first teacher training class there and was its first teacher, and was president of the Women's Association at the church for 1924 and 1925.

Charter Member of Society

            Mrs. Fisher was a charter member of the Presbyterial Society of Presbytery Union, which was organized in 1884 at a Presbyterian Tennessee Synodical Society meeting which she attended. She was president of the Presbyterial Society from 1920 through 1924.

            Her interest in church home mission work was particularly directed to Swift Memorial School, Negro junior college in her native Rogersville; to Sunset School near Newport and to Tusculum College near Greeneville. Many a young student owes his or her opportunity for formal schooling to Mrs. Fisher's contributions. Her contributions to Sunset made possible the education of many of its students, and it was through her assistance that the school acquired a modern dispensary. School authorities wished to name it for her, but she declined the honor through modesty.

Life Membership Conferred

            In recognition of her long service, the U.S. Presbyterian Church made the Knoxvillian a life mem­ber of both its boards of National and Foreign Missions. She was also a leader in Ossoli, joining that group shortly after it was organized here.

            Her husband, head of the predecessor bank to Park National, died in 1925. They had been mar­ried 40 year.

                            186.  Laura Jane Fisher ( 1855 - 1926 )**

 

            Laura Jane Fisher (daughter of Daniel, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Union County, Pa., on June 5, 1855, and died July 21, 1926, at the home of her daughter Mrs. Mar­garet Beard in Athens, Tennessee. Laura's mother was Amelia Laudenslager. With her parents in the spring of 1868, Laura moved  from Pennsylvania to Russellville, Tennessee, where she grew to woman­hood. On Jan 19, 1876, she married John R. Bewley, who was the son of John Grenade Bewley and Ma­rina [Harold] Bewley. Three children were born of this marriage before the death of John R. Bewley on August 15, 1886. About 1890, she married John Thomas Utsman, who was born March 31, 1863, in North Carolina, probably Wilkes County, and died in Johnson City, Washington County, Tn., on . Two children were born of this second marriage.

 

            Laura was tall, dark haired, attractive, but by her mid-sixties her hair had turned completely white. She was a seamstress of extraordinary talent, and for a time after separating from her second hus­band, she supported herself and her children working as a seamstress at the Veterans Hospital in Johnson City, Tn. Later, when her brother Frank Fisher discovered her dilemma, he began providing her funds and continued until the end of his life. Laura died just six months after her brother Frank's death.

 

            On one of Laura's trips to Iowa to visit her son, Cecil, she brought him two hand sewn white silk dress shirts which she had made, and it is said these were beautiful shirts which he wore for dress for many years. Laura spent the winter of 1923 with her son Cecil Utsman in Iowa and during that visit  pre­sented him with a 12 Gauge Winchester, Model-12, shotgun for his twenty-sixth birthday. This shotgun is now in the possession of Cecil's son Ralph - 1992.

                            187b.  Michael Oliver Fisher  ( 1866  -    ?    )**

 

            Michael Oliver Fisher (son of Michael, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born on the Isle of Que, Penn Township, Snyder County, Pa., in 1866. His mother was Sarah Hoot. When Michael Oliver was about one year old, his father died, and when he came of age, he and his sister inher­ited their father's farm. They were the fifth generation of Fishers to own it in a continuous line since 1773, when  John Jacob Fisher purchased it from the heirs of Conrad Weiser. Michael Oliver, or "Ollie" as he is commonly called, has always lived on the farm on which he was born. He is a hard working man, fond of the sports of hunting, fishing, and trap shooting; and a great lover of dogs and horses. He has hunted big game in Canada and smaller game in other sections. He has always been a member of the Republican Party and is a strong adherent and a liberal supporter of the Lutheran Church.

            As a boy the writer considered it the greatest delight to be permitted to sit in the "office" on "Ollie's" farm and listen to the hunting and fishing stories of the older men who gathered there every evening. And here a word about the "office" is in order. It was a small building about twelve by sixteen feet containing a stove, chairs, benches, a small table, and a cupboard for the hunting equipment and ammuni­tion belonging to "Ollie" and those who happened to be living with him. This little building and all of its furnishings are still in existence today (c.1935). Summer and winter, year in and year out, the male inhabitants of that section gathered in this little building every evening for a social period; and be­tween eating apples and popcorn and smoking the pipes that have done yoeman service these many years, they indulged in discussions of the state of the country and the nations of the world. Whether a good story teller, a good conversationalist, or just a good listener, everyone was welcome. The "Office was not only visited by those who lived nearby, but many a citizen of Selinsgrove and other places far away found it necessary to join the convivial congregation for a winter afternoon or a long winter evening. Many a friendly game of cards, checkers, and dominoes were played here by those not interested in the conversation. And many a plan for the help and betterment of the community was developed through the discussions which took place at the "Office." Some of the men, living and dead, who found it convenient on occasions to take part in the good fellowship and discussions at the office were: Dr. A.R. Potteiger, Newton Fisher, Isaac Seiler, Norman Fisher, R. Lloyd Schroyer, Jacob A. Fisher, Calvin Forry, Samuel B. Forry, James J. Hendricks, and others. Michael Oliver Fisher never married. He is a man of medium build, and a kindly face. One is better for having known him.

                            188.  William Newton Fisher  ( 1846 - 1925 )**

 

            William Newton Fisher (son of Christian, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born on the Isle of Que, in Penn Township, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on October 10, 1846, and died in the house in which he was born on April 12, 1925. His mother was Lydia Hendershot. His father died when he was only fourteen years old, and William was early called upon to take the burden of the only man of the family. On November 3, 1867 he married Elizabeth Ferry (Forry), who was born in the same township on September 9, 1850, and died on August 16, 1920. Newton or "Newt", as he was com­monly called, was not a large man, and within the writer's memory, always wore a long full beard like his cousin William A. Fisher. Newton and his cousin William looked very much alike.

 

            Newton was a farmer and was of the fourth generation of Fishers to till the soil where he lived. He was a member and a regular attendant of the Lutheran Church, and in politics he was a Republican.  In his younger days Mr. Fisher traveled over a great part of the United States and was well versed in pub­lic affairs. On one occasion when the writer was a boy, he helped to do the threshing on "Newt's" farm and has never enjoyed a better meal anywhere than was received on that occasion from the hands of Mrs. Fisher and her daughters. These Fishers were very kindly folks, generous to a fault, and the writer remembers them as some of the finest people he ever knew. They are buried in one of the cemeteries near Selinsgrove.

                            190.  Sarah Fisher, Wife of Dennis H. Snyder**

 

            Sarah Fisher (daughter of Christian, Christian, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born on the Isle of Que, in Penn Township, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on February 2, 1854. She was a twin sister of Matilda. Her mother was Lydia Hendershot. Sarah's father died when she was about six years old, and she, her brother, and her sister were reared by their widowed mother. Sallie, as she was common­ly known, attended the local school and about 1872 became a student at the Susquehanna Female College in Selinsgrove, one of the forerunners of Susquehanna University and at that time conducted by Dr. William Noetling, . On February 9, 1875, she married Dennis H. Snyder of the Fishers Ferry sec­tion of North­umberland County, Pa. Mr Snyder was born on August 26, 1847, at Sunbury, Pa., and died on December 30, 1922. In his youth he engaged in mercantile business and for many years he was head of the mercantile firm of Dennis H. Snyder and Company on Market Street in Sunbury, Pa., at one time  the largest general store in that city. Mr. Snyder was a gentleman and businessman of the old school, a type of which we have far too few today. The writer, as a green country boy, thought of him as a mer­chant prince and often wished that he might grow up to emulate him., never thinking at the time that he would ever do such an unthought of thing as write a biographical sketch of him in his connection with the Fisher family. Mr and Mrs Snyder were Christian gentle folks of the highest type.

Peggy, as she was commonly known, was the oldest child of the family. On January 15, 1850, she mar­ried Jacob M. Duck, who was born on December 31, 1823. The Bucks for many years lived in the small two story stone house along the Selinsgrove-Freeburg Highway, near the ruins of the old gristmill and the Millers School House. Neither Mr. or Mrs. Buck were large of stature. He was an excellent carpen­ter, and many buildings still standing in Snyder County bear the marks of his handicraft. The writer re­calls with great pleasure the time Mr. Buck built a canoe for his father. Jacob M. Duck served as a sol­dier in the Civil War, but the record of his service is not in the hands of the writer. He is buried in one of the cemeteries at Freeburg. Margaret Fisher died on April 5, 1901, and is buried at Freeburg, Pa.

The U.S. War Department reports that Daniel Fisher enlisted for three years as a Private in Company K, 17th Regt., Illinois Infantry, at Peoria, Illi­nois, on May 25, 1861, and was mortally wounded at the battle of Fredericktown, Missouri on October 21, 1861. He died on Oct 23, 1861, age 26 years.

            John Peter Fisher (son of John, John, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Penn Town­ship, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on November 10, 1838, and died near the place where he was born on November 1, 1913. His mother was Lydia Witmer. Four of his brothers were in the Union Army during the Civil War, but due to a physical handicap, John was not accepted. His brother Daniel lost his life in the conflict. When John Peter's father died in 1861, he and Adam J. Fisher (his father's first cousin and the writer's grandfather) were appointed Administrators of the estate. Some time after the death of her first husband, John Peter's mother married Samuel Ritter. John Peter built the brick house on the east side of the Susquehanna Trail at the Middle Creek Bridge, and the house on the opposite side of the street was built by his grandfather. John Peter was a short, stout man who in  his latter days al­ways wore a beard and was quite bald. He was a jovial man and Johnny as he was commonly called, pulled many a joke on those not quite as quick witted as he. His entire life was spent in agricultural pur­suits in Penn Township, and he was highly successful, raising some of the best crops of wheat, corn and potatoes in the township. He held numerous township offices, was a Republican, and a staunch Lutheran. On December 25, 1863, he married Maria Woodruff of the same township, who was born on September 23, 1842. John Peter and Maria are buried in the Baker Cemetery at Selinsgrove. Mrs. Fisher was known as a kind and indulgent mother, who always had a spic and span home. In her latter years she was some­what deaf, but this did not keep her from attending religious services and other gatherings.

            Henry W. Fisher (son of John, John, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Penn Town­ship, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on November 30, 1842, and at the time of this writing (January, 1935) was living at the home of his son J.Absalon Fisher at 842 Bluff Street, Beloit, Wiscon­sin. So far as is known to the writer, he is the oldest living Fisher, and has been for some years past. He spent his young manhood on his father's farm and early in the Civil War became a soldier in the Pennsylva­nia Infantry. Three of Henry's brothers also served in the Union Army, and his brother Daniel was killed in the conflict. Soon after the war on July 22, 1866, he married Ellen, daughter of Moses Fisher. Ellen was his second cousin. She was born in Penn Township and died at Elkhart, Indiana. Soon after their marriage they moved to northern Indiana and spent the latter days of their life in Elkhart. Henry was quite a large man and usually wore a beard. He was one of the organizers of the Fisher re­unions held at Elkhart, Indiana, and in earlier days also attended the Fisher reunion held at Selinsgrove, Pa. Henry was an active worker in the United Brethren Church and often acted as lay preacher for his own and other congregations. The writer has a number of letters written by this man  in his 90th year, which show a keen memory of family history and affairs.

            Edward Fisher (son of Peter, John, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Selinsgrove, Snyder County, Pa., on December 14, 1845. His mother was Susan Lloyd. His father died when he was eleven years old, and his mother died when he was sixteen, leaving himself, a younger brother, and two younger sisters. On September 17, 1862, when less than seventeen years of age, he enlisted as a Private in Company G, 147th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, under Captain Charles Selin Davis and served un­til June 6, 1865, at which time he was mustered out of the Federal Service with his organization. After the war he went to Scranton, where he was employed in various enterprises owned by the Pardee family, General Ario Pardee having been at one time Colonel of the 147th Regiment. On December 28, 1866, he married a Miss Williams, who was born in 1848 and died at Selinsgrove, Pa., on December 20, 1924. Af­ter working a number of years in the Scranton section, Edward and family moved to Selinsgrove, where he followed various lines of  work. For many years he was janitor of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Selinsgrove, where he was also a member. Edward was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, and whenever his military company had a reunion, usually annually, Edward cooked a succulent old fash­ioned army bean soup in a large iron kettle. In earlier days Edward prepared this bean soup for several of the Fisher Reunions, and many gallons were consumed by hungry Fishers. For many years Edward was on the Executive Committee of the Fisher Family Reunion Association at Selinsgrove. He was a hard work­ing man and well liked by those who knew him. He died in the Veterans Hospital at Philadelphia on May 13, 1926.

            Samuel Boyer Kantz (son of Mary Fisher, John George, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born about a mile east of the village of Freeburg, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on June 11, 1836. He was the second son of John Kantz (probably a son of Christian Kantz) and Mary Fisher. Samuel died of Typhoid Fever at the same place where he was born on May 1, 1872. As a boy and young man he helped his father bring this farm to a high state of cultivation and erect new buildings on it. The gray lime­stone dwelling on this farm built by Samuel's father is, to this day, one of the most beautiful along the Selinsgrove-Freeburg Highway and is a community landmark. Samuel or Boyer, as he was called by some, had unusual ability in animal husbandry and became one of the best live stock judges in the sec­tion. He secured the education offered by the local schools and for two years was a teacher in Washing­ton Township. On the death of his father, he became owner of the parental farm and continued its opera­tion until his untimely death. In 1857, he married Sarah Wetzel, daughter of Henry Wetzel, of Middle Creek Township, the same county. During the greater part of his majority, he served as a Justice of the Peace for Washington Township, the township in which he lived, and it is said of him that he administered justice and other legal matters with a celerity and ease not often shown by those who were fully trained in the law. He was a member of the Democratic Party and a strong advocate of temperance. He was actively affiliated with a protestant church and was a member of the Masonic Lodge of Selinsgrove. It can well be said of him that he was grateful to his Creator, loyal to his country, and fraternal to his fellowmen. His wife, Sarah Wetzel,  was born in Middle Creek Township, Union (now Snyder) County, Pa., on Febru­ary 3, 1834, and died at Freeburg, Pa., on February 27, 1917. She was of German descent and her father was once the owner of a smithy, rifle barrel boring, and sickle factory near Kreamer. (The writer once owned the site on which the factory stood; it is now a summer cottage site). Henry Wetzel was an excel­lent marksman, a good mechanic, and a fine German scholar. After the death of her husband in 1872, Mrs. Kantz with her younger children moved to a home in Freeburg which she purchased. Here she contin­ued to live an industrious and useful life until her death 45 years after that of her husband. She was an excellent house­keeper, and her home and garden were among the finest in the community. Several of her daughters occupy the old homestead in Freeburg at the time of this writing (January 1935).

He attended the schools of his home section and assisted on his father's farm in Washington township until December 15, 1853, when he married Mary Ann Ritter, probably of Penn Township. After marriage they resided on a farm in Penn township until April 12, 1876, when they moved to a farm four miles north of Elkhart, Indiana, which they purchased from William Garman; they resided on this farm for many years. Christian's father was John Kantz, son of Christian Kantz.

                            335.  James A. Fisher  ( 1846 - 1909 )**

 

            James A. Fisher (son of Henry, John Jacob, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in what is now Snyder County or Northumberland County, Pa., on February 8. 1846, and died at Atkins, Arkansas on June 6, 1909. When seven years of age, his parents moved to Illinois. James grew to young manhood during the Civil War, and toward the end of that war he enlisted in the 108th Regiment of Illinois Volunteers. On December 19, 1869, he married Miss D.A. Dwyer of Spring Lake, Illinois, who was born on December 20, 1851, and died at Alta Vista, Kansas on October 10, 1922. In the spring of 1870 James and his wife moved to Burlingame, Kansas, and the next year took up a homestead two miles southwest of Alta Vista, Morris County, Kansas. Here they resided until 1908 when, because of his failing health, they moved from the farm to the new home they had built in Alta Vista.

            Six children were born to James and his wife, three of whom preceded him in death. James came to Alta Vista when the country was new and always identified himself with those movements which tended to the betterment of the community. When the Methodist Church was organized in the White School House, he was one of the original members, was active in church affairs, and was an official of the congregation. In his school district, he served as an officer for many years. He was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic [Federal Army during the Civil War], and a charter member of the A.O.U.W. lodge. For twelve years he suffered with a kidney complaint, and during his last two years it gave him little rest. About six weeks before his death, he went to Arkansas Springs to try the mineral water there, but no relief from his malady was to be had in this life. Realizing that he was growing worse, he attempted to reach home, but got no further than Atkins, Arkansas, where he died. Mrs. Fisher and daughter Clara arrived in Atkins a few days before James died and were with him at the end. His remains were brought to Alta Vista for interment, and on the afternoon of June 9th, 1909, the funeral services were held in the Baptist Church and conducted by the Rev. A.W. Crippen, James's former pastor, assisted by the Rev. N.J. Adams, the present pastor, and the Rev. G.O. Heide, pastor of the Baptist Church. The interment was made in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. Six of his old comrades of the G.A.R. carried his body to the grave. His work is done. He has gone to his reward. His memory is cherished by many. (Writer's note: The above obituary, with several additions, was taken from an Alta Vista, Kansas, newspaper of early June 1909).

            A statement from the Adjutant General of Illinois follows: "James A. Fisher enlisted September 23, 1864, for service in the Civil War and was assigned to duty as a Private in Company H, 108th Infantry for a period of one year. He was mustered into the service at Springfield, Illinois, on Sept 23, 1864, and discharged on May 26, 1865, at Madison, Indiana. Description: Age 18 years; height, 5 ft 5 1/2 inches; Hair, Light; Eyes, Hazel; Complexion, fair; Occupation, farmer; Born, Snyder County, Pennsylvania; Residence at time of enlistment, Cincinnati, Tazewell County, Illinois.

            Jacob A. Fisher (son of Adam J., John Jacob, John Adam, John Jacob, Sebastian) was born in Penn Township, Snyder County, Pa., on October 7, 1863. He attended the rural schools of his township and  for one year grammar school at Selinsgrove. He is a great reader and in his younger days was a fine pen and pencil artist. His mother was Barbara Woodling, descendant of John George Woodling, a Revolutionary soldier.  Jacob spent his younger days on his parents farm and about 1886 became a tenant on the same farm when his father retired. Being of aggressive ideas, he early added vegetable and truck farming to the general farming and about 1892 began to take his products to the markets at Sunbury and Shamokin, where he was able to obtain higher prices. In 1907 he rented the farm and moved to Selinsgrove, where for several years he conducted a grocery store in addition to huckstering to the Sunbury market. About 1912 he sold the ancestral farm, which he had inherited at his mother's death, to William Musselman. Jacob continued in the livelihood of market gardening in Selinsgrove during the summer months and in the winter lived in the Pennsylvania Colony at Vero Beach, Florida, which he founded in 1921. In his younger days on the farm, he engaged in teaming during the winter months, hauling logs to the mills and lumber to the markets. He was a member of the Lutheran Church and of the Republican party. For a number of years he was a member of the Lutheran Church and of the Republican party. For a number of years he was a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge. He was also a member of the National Geographic Society and for thirteen years he was tax assessor for the borough of Selinsgrove. He also served as an officer of his church. On December 24, 1884, he married Clara Ella, daughter of Lieutenant John George Herrold and his wife, Rosalina Roush. Ella as she was commonly called was born in Chapman Township, Snyder County, Pa., on September 17, 1865. In her youth she became a member of the Evangelical Church, but upon marriage joined the church of her husband. Her family was of the Democratic party, but as a voter she today (c.1935) classes herself as a Republican. The writer, son of the above couple, owes much to his parents in the matter of advice and encouragement, spiritually and otherwise.

Moyer. Uncle Calvin, as he was known by many, attended the Freeburg Academy and the New Berlin Normal School and taught in the schools of Snyder County. For years he was editor and part owner of the Freeburg Courier, a wellknown weekly paper. Most of the information on the descendants of John Michael Fisher was compiled by Calvin and kindly loaned to the writer by his heirs. Calvin was a man of great integrity and a scholar of no mean ability. Many sections of family history were gathered and written by him, and it is unfortunate that not more of them were published. It is said that he left a "History of the Morr Family" in manuscript at his death and also some information on the Moyer family. Calvin lived alone for many years in the beautiful stone house on the main street of Freeburg that once was his parent's home. He was a member of the Reformed Church, the Masonic Lodge, and the Republican party. He was never married. For many years he was a member of the Executive Committee of the Fisher Family Reunion. He died on January 6, 1933, and is buried at Freeburg.
