John Fisher seems to be a common name. I do not have much on the line. I am related to a Sarah Fisher who married Mordecai Michener, She was the daughter of John Fisher and Elizabeth Scarborough (his 2nd wife). John b, 1672 England was the son of  possibly John Fisher and Mary Hutchinson. But there doesn't seem to be exact documentation to prove this. I would like to know more about his family in England.

I have more information about my Fisher.  His father was Reverend John Fisher whose parish was Carrigallen Ireland.  He married Mary Ann Elliott a daughter of a wealthy Distiller.  He died in 1860.  I attach photos of the Carrigallen Presbyterian Church and a head stone of a William Fisher and family (still trying to link to my Fishers).

My blood was tested, and my Fishers were on dad's side, but waaaaaaay-back. My supposed Kaskaskia Illini line was about eight generations back, but no Indian DNA showed up; so I figured I had none. Later I was  told it may have been the wrong type of DNA test; Or even if of the right type; back that far, it might not show up. Suddenly I saw the simple solution of DNA, while it can be simple; it can be complimented too. Now, I just d'know? In our Wilmington, N.C., phone book we have a Fisscher, which I think is Dutch?

I'm not sure about the death certificates. I have a copy of my husband's grandmother's (Edna Hester Flynn) birth certificate, that's how I know the name and dates. Also, his grandmother said her mother died before she turned 2 years old. She and her Dad moved back to Memphis, TN area (where he was from) after the death of Annie.

I am sorry, but I don't know anything about your Annie Fischer.  Good luck.  Did Iowa have death certificates in 1902-04?  If so you might find some information on it.

Somehow I missed your post in March. My father always maintained that our Fishers used to spell the name Fischer and at some point the "c" was dropped. I will have to look into the Cabarrus County, NC, Fishers. Thank you for the information. Do you know if any of your Fisher family males have had DNA testing done?

Hi Group. I only know of one name that has the surname of Fisher, and not much more to go on. The name is Margaret Fisher d. 1729. She was married to Charles Oulton, born 30 Jan 1675, Cheshire, England, died Oct 1718. They had a son William Oulton born 23 Jul 1714, Tarporley, [parish], Cheshire, England, died 1760

That should be "Col. Dr." John Hall (below).

My Cabarrus County, North Carolina great aunt, Mrs. "Aunt Ora" (Miller) Jessie Pike, joined the DAR there on local Revolutionary War Patriot Capt. Frederick Fisher (German) by first wife Rosanna ____? Most are in on second wife Ann McBride of whom U.S. Senator, Confederate Col. Charles Fisher descended, for whom Fort Fisher, below Wilmington, North Carolina, is named. Very conservative, late U.S. Congressman Jessie Helms of Raleigh was also a descendant, as was alledgedly President Jimmy Carter's mother, via the Fisher branch to Tenn., then to Georgia. That might be the "blind" Fisher branch?

Christine, in the 1830-40's, many Cabarrus County, N.C., "Dutch Buffalo Creek" Germans removed to Union and Madison Cos., Ill.; amongst them Millers, Barringers (Beringer), and Ridenhour, et al) . In the Lutheran churches there, the names on the tombstones remind one of the Cabarrus Co., N.C., Lutheran churches. Kenneth, many of the 1750's to 1800's Cabarrus Co., N.C., Germans such as my "Col. Dr." (the consistant titles are a mystery, nothing indicates he was either). He wrote his will in Penn. in contemplation of his journey to N.C. where it was finally probated. A former acting director of the CIA has his Penn. rifle he brought to N.C.
