Timothy & Hepsey Fisher



Timothy Fisher was born about 1795-1800 in the Creek Nation, Alabama to Josiah Fisher, a white man from Pennsylvania and Semahoway, a Creek (or Chickasaw?) Indian. The Fishers resided primarily in Clarke county, Alabama near Gainestown. Timothy and his brother William emigrated alone to Oklahoma in June 1833. Timothy's brother Samuel Fisher emigrated in 1847 and later founded Fishertown, Oklahoma.

In Oklahoma Timothy married Hepsey, a Creek Indian. Timothy's family according to early census records was affiliated with the "War ko kiye/War ko kaye" tribal town but later census records show a shift to the Thlopthlocco tribal town. His brother Samuel's family affiliated with the Tuskegee tribal town.

Timothy died after 1859 and Hepsey died after 1867.   [Notes]
