Daniel Fisher, b 1774 and Julia Armstrong, Washington/Tyrrell Co

Surnames: Fisher, Armstrong, Swain
Looking for Fisher family connections in the Tyrrell, Washington and Currituck County area. There was a Daniel Fisher in Currituck in early 1800 censuses. The story is that my Daniel Fisher's family were seafaring people who had commercial ships in trade in the French and Spanish ports in the Caribbean. If anyone has suggestions on where to find more about ships and seamen in pre-Revolutionary NC, I would certainly appreciate them.

I don't know if there is any relationship with the Philadelphia Joshua Fisher and Sons firm. Those Fishers were Quakers who had ships of trade.

Julia Armstrong's father John Harden Armstrong was a ship's captain, and her mother, Mary Swain, came from another sailing family. The Armstrong family ancestors had owned property on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and the Swains had settled Nantucket, Massachusetts.
