I am starting a new message thread for the FISHER families. This surname was introduced on our other MESSAGE BOARD THREAD: "Ancestry Findings of Dr. H. A. Terry"
(cont'd from prior message board):

Hello, I am looking for more information on the Fisher family. I have an Amos Fisher who married Lydia Stoddard and had children Emerald b. 1831, Francis, Arsina b. 1830, Ezra b. 1840 and Cynthia.

The Ezra of this group had children Elmer, Emerald b. 1872, Effie, Eldon, Mary, Roy b. 1878 (Zelph LeRoy?), Jessie. They lived in Kansas. I am looking for more information on this family group.

Kwriter,
May I suggest you start a new message thread with FISHER as the subject line? We are getting too many surnames in this thread and it makes it difficult to follow. Well, it does for me anyway. Old brain cells and all.

I have a FISHER genealogy and I will post it sometime next week, after our Cemetery Walk on Monday.

Mr. Emerald Fisher, of Cedar Rapids, IA has submitted individual family sheets as opposed to an actual genealogy report, which makes it a little more difficult to follow. I do not find Amos Fisher married to a Lydia Stoddard in these Family Sheets.
Here are the family sheets he has submitted:

CHILD 1 - Japheth or Jacob Fisher “Japheth Fisher and Maria Williams A notch at a time
Tough? What’s tough?
Getting lost in the wilderness but undaunted perserveing (sic)to start the firstvfarm (sic) in an unsettled township. Building a barn alone, carrying the heavy logs up a ladder “a notch at a time and laying them properly in their places”. Walking barefoot to frontier logging bees” where savage thistles are apt to abound,” then laughing when friends push you onto “the fangs of those thistles”.
That’s tough.
So was Japheth Fisher, the first resident of Benton Township in Eaton County. The Vermont-born descendant of an old New England family arrived in Michigan in 1836 from New York, where he had worked on the docks of New York City and along the Erie Canal~He spent his first Michigan winter timbering in Allegany County, where he helped build a mill. From his $266 earnings, he paid $49.75 for a barrel of flour and half a barrel of pork, using the rest of the money to buy 80 acres of virgin forest near what would become Charlotte.
In the summer of 1837, he began the tough task of claiming a farm from the woods and raising corn and potatoes. His first house was an 8 10-foot trough-roofed shanty. The following year, he married another Vermont transplant, Marie Williams, ho lived in neighboring Chester Township.
When Maria was ready to give birth to their first child, she returned to her mother’s house because the Fishers had no neighbors to assist them.
The next eight children were born in their own home though.
Japheth and Maria planted the first orchard and operated the first brick-making business and cider press in the county. They also donated I
on their farm for construction of a frame schoolhouse that Japheth built with the help of two neighbors-”
From the book “Pioneering Michigan”by Eric Freeman, ISBN 1878005-23-5, PAGES 220-221.

‘The first settler in Benton was Japhat Fisher, who through a mistake, located his land six miles farther north than he intended, having calculated to settle on section 30 in the township of Eaton. He arrived in the of Benton in February 1837, and built an eight-by-ten shanty.

Kwriter,
There were several Fisher families in the Walnut vicinity. William & Sarah McElhaney Fisher; Theodore & Hannah Kimmel Fisher; John & Ida Shirk Fisher; Edgar & Carrie Heller (of Tampico) Fisher. If you are interested in this family line, let me know and I will post more details from the Walnut Centennial Book.

Yes, that is a bit comical! I remember jjj - I was frantic to find him for Mr. Fisher! I'm so glad you are all making family connections. The original messages for FISHER started way back in our "Dr. Terry" thread.

Just an FYI:
While re-reading through the thread, I noticed the following information listed for the child of Emerald Asa Fisher, Sr.:
Name: Emerald Asa Fisher, Jr.
Born: November 01, 1893 in: Tampico, Bureau Co., Illinois
M Married: February 27, 1917 in:
Died: February 17, 1973 in: West Branch, Cedar Co~, Iowa
Spouse: Fern Adaline Hegarty

Tampico is in Whiteside County. This could be confusing to those not from the area.

HUBBARD-FISHER WEDDING
A pretty country wedding occurred last evening at 8 o'clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Elias Fisher on the Buell road two miles south of Rock Falls, uniting Frank Hubbard and Miss Minnie Fisher. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. C. A. Gage, pastor of the Methodist Church of Rock Falls, in the presence of about fifty relatives and friends. The ceremony occurred in a parlor of the home and the bride, groom and their attendants stood before a huge bank of green ferns and palms. The bride was attired in a dress of turquois blue trimmed with lace and ribbons.

Congratulations were offered and a large array of handsome gifts to the bride were admired by the guests. A bountiful supper was served and the evening was spent in social conversation and visiting.

The bride and groom will commence housekeeping at once on the Hubbard farm in Montmorency township. Both young people came from highly respected families of Montmorency township and they are very well known in a radius of several miles from thier homes. They have been residents of Montmorency for years and their many friends extend to them hearty congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy married life.

Hi Denise, KC, Emerald,
Just checking in to see what new information may have been added. Several years ago I visited the Lakeside cemetry in Benton CO, MI where Amos Fisher, Mary Ames, Fisher Ames, Namoni Davis, etc are buried. I oftened wondered what happened that three members of the family all died on the same day (based upon dates from the gravestones) and I just found the answer here (smallpox). My brother KC just made a trip to Grafton VT last year where he found some information on the Fisher family. From what I gather the Fisher family is still well know in the area.

If anyone is working on the Emerald Asa Fisher or his wife Carrie Lenora (Dale) Fisher family feel free to contact me at fodstuff@hotmail.com
