Surnames: FISHER, FISCHER,
I believe that David FISHER may be the grandparent of my Jacob FISHER (b.1770 PA-d.1852 OH, wife Barbary _?_) and his Revolutionary War brother Peter FISHER (b.1755 PA-d.bef 1850 prob. in OH).

The 1761 will contained the names of his sons: Lawrence, George, Jacob, and Peter. The mother of the children Catherine, and his present wife Anna Mary. These are common names in both my Jacob and Peter's families. Any one who has information on any of these families, I would appreciate hearing from you.

I'm descended from this line: Jacob married Mary Bish. Their son David married Rachel Peters. Their son Jacob III married Rachel Jones and they died [Jacob in 1869 and Rachel in 1884] in Greene County, Alabama. Their daughter Mary Alice [died 1947] was my great-grandmother.

My two little requests: does anyone know the relgious persuasion of any of these Fischer-Fishers? Based on locally famous traits of my Fishers, if they weren't Mennonite I'd be so surprised I wouldn't believe it. Unfortunately, once they got to Alabama there were no records of specific beliefs. Jacob III and Rachel Jones attended and are buried in Salem Methodist Church cemetery.

And, what docs are used to establish this line? I have information only about the people I've listed above but I'd love to get hard docs as far back as we can get.

Your Adam FISCHER lines aren't connected to the David FISHER/FISCHER whose will is in Lancaster Co., PA. I believe that one of the 4 sons of David & lst wife Catherine-- Peter, Lorentz (Lawrence), John George or John Jacob might be the parent of my Jacob FISHER (1770 PA-1852 Highland Co., OH).

Although I searched your lines because an Adam C. FISHER b. 1822 lived 2 doors away in Highland Co., Ohio from my Jacob FISHER (b. 1770 PA-d.1852 OH, wife Barbary) and I thought he might be a son (not proven).

I think my Jacob and Barbary FISHER had at least 9 children or more. 7 might be:
James who md 1819 Silvania MILLER
Mary "Polly" who md 1822 Joseph F. MILLER
Catherine who md 1826 Adam KNISLEY
Sarah B. (b.1803 OH-1879 Iowa) md 1823 Joseph WOODS
my John Henry (b.1811 OH-d.1877 Iowa) md Tamor/Tamer
JARNAGIN/GARNIGAN/JERNIGAN etc;
John George who md 1835 Mary JARNAGIN
(Jacob in 1850 Census with prob. dau. Barbara (b.1815
OH-d.1896 Iowa) who md 1st Leonard BUTLER and
1858 md Charles SPERRY.

My Tamor JARNAGIN and her sister Mary JARNAGIN were the daughters of Isaac JARNIGAN and Sarah Jane GROVE both born in VA and both died in Highland Co., OH.

Sorry, but your Adam family names, dates, and places don't correspond to mine.

It is also said that my Jacob FISHER (1770 PA-1852 OH) moved to Highland Co., OH about 1802 with his brother (Revolutionary War soldier) Peter FISHER (b. 1755 Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania). I believe I found Peter in the 1790 Lancaster Co., PA census with an unknown wife & may have had some children. Peter's married a Dolly GATES in 1821 and had 5 known children: Sarah, Catherine, John b. 1828, Elizabeth b. 1830, and David b. 1833 all in Ohio.

I sure would like to find someone related to Peter and well as finding their parents and etc;

I too, have a Fisher line in PA, but in Bucks Co. and also in Virginia, Ohio, and Iowa. They seem to have spread out into Ohio and Iowa mostly though. If I remember right, the Ohio branch were Quakers. I'll have to double check that. Have only had some luck as far as connecting to others regarding this line. That's why I signed up for this message board. My Fisher line (in sketchy form) begins with John Fisher (?)+ Elizabeth Scarborough (?) married in PA, Joseph Fisher (PA) + Ann Carey (?), Joseph Fisher (PA)+ Hannah Pidgeon (?), Isaac Fisher (PA)+ Eunice Street (OH), Lydia Ann Fisher (Ohio) + William Elias Vernon, Sr. (England), William Elias Vernon, Jr. (IA) + Cora McMains (IA).

I do have a lot of names on my Fisher Branches, but none of the ones in your post....at least not yet.

I see that you have a number of Jacob Fishers. I have one, too, born 23 Feb. 1749 in Rhinebeck, Dutchess, NY, son of Christian Fisher and Catherina Schneider. (And that is all I know about him.)

Do you have him hiding in your family tree someplace?

I cannot find a link between your Fishers and mine, but I do have a completely other line from what I think is the same area of NY. Try this site for German/Palatines in NY. Warning, you can spend lots of time there!

Good luck!

Thanks for the site. I also found a line from my father's side (Yauney) on it! I'm sure my parents had no idea they had ancestors from the same area of NY.

I don't know who the parents were of my Jacob FISHER (1770 PA-1852 Highland Co., Ohio) and his probable brother Rev. War soldier Peter Fisher (1755 Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania-1842 Highland Co., OH). Peter's birthplace was established through his pension application; therefore, I assume his brother my Jacob also came from Lancaster Co., PA.

Wasn't Christian a son of Adam FISHER?
