Wondered if there are any Fisher's from New England out there.
My fathers name is Arthur E. Fisher, had a sister Alice.
Their father ( my grandfather ) was Philip Fisher died in 1976 in Lowell, MA.
His brother was Charles Jr., moved to PA. The father we think was Charles Sr.
Before that they came from Cambridge England.
Don't know much more than that.
Thanks for any info, Linda:
My e-mail address is dlandscape@prodigy.net

My husband's Great Grandparents were Cornelilus Fisher who married Sarah Ann Smith of Birmingham England at Boston. They had 7 children, Florence, Ada, Daisie, Ada May, Sarah and Arthur.

Do you have any other details on Alice Ellershaw, I have a few in my tree. I am researching the Ellershaw name, my side came from the Lancashire and Manchester areas of England. I know that some emmigrated to the Brockton area of MA, USA and one even became Mayor for a short period. If this means anything to you I would like to hear from you.

Also I googled mayor in brockton and saw that Leonard H. Ellershaw was mayor of Brockton 1960-1961. Seems to be the same people. I look forward to hearing from you.
