Hi Eileen,

If you can give me what you know about when hannah got married, maybe I can find something.

In the meantime, I found the following information.

Going back from the beginning:

ancestry.com 1860 census Waterloo, Jefferson County, Wisconsin

Frank Fisher, age 40, born about 1820 Bohemia, farmer
Theresa Fisher, age 35, born about 1825 Bohemia
Bernerd Fisher, age 16, born about 1844 Bohemia
Adolph Fisher, age 6, born about 1854 Wisconsin
Mary Fisher, age 3, born about 1857 Wisconsin
Ann Fisher, age 1, born about 1859 Wisconsin
--------------
I then found Franz, Theresa, Adolph, and Hannah in the following census, but I lost track of them after this:

ancestry.com 1870 census Town Emmet, Dodge County, Wisconsin

Franz Fisher, age 50, born about 1820 Bohemia, farmer
Theresa Fisher, age 45, born about 1825 Bohemia
Adolph Fisher, age 16, born about 1854 Wisconsin
Mary Fisher, age 12, born about 1858 Wisconsin
Hannah Fisher, age 10, born about 1860 Wisconsin
-------------
I found the marriage date of Mary and Ernest Falk in the Wisconsin marriage index. Maybe you can find a volunteer to look at the record. I also found them in the 1880 census in Kansas. Don't worry about Germany as place of birth. Some census records lists Germany instead of Bohemia, Poland, etc.:
