"Baby" FISHER

1CA1. A baby boy is said to have been born during the Civil War while father John Jackson Fisher was away serving the Union Army. The baby died before John's return at about two years of age. This child would most likely have been the first to be born to John and Harriett Fisher.

Orville Howard FISHER (1866-1928)

1CA2. Orville Howard Fisher was born in November 1866 in Nebraska.[Cen 1900] He married Asenth Endora "Dora" (Smith) Dewey, the widow of Lester S. Dewey, who was five and a half years his senior (he about 20 years old, she about 26), about 1887.[Cen 1900] She had three surviving children from her first marriage and they later had four more children together, all born in Nebraska[Cen 1900], with at least two of them born in Hazard, Sherman County, Nebraska:

-- Charles William Dewey 5 Nov 1881 Dec 1968 (87)
-- Walter A. Dewey 28 Apr 1883 19 May 1905 (22)
-- Flora Mae Dewey Dec 1884 --  --

Acknowledgement
Portions were incorporated from the story of Charles Dewey, as recorded by his granddaughter, Barbara, before his death in 1968.

Dora, a native of Morris, Grundy County, Illinois, and her first husband, Lester, moved from Mazon Township, Grundy County, Illinois, to Scott Township, Sherman County, Nebraska, in 1882. Lester died of pneumonia in 1885, followed two weeks later by their eldest daughter, Jessie, age 5. She died of "Summer Complaint" (cholera infantum). Dora and her three young children lived two years in their sod house on a homestead.

Orville and Dora married about 1887 and about two years later Dora lost her homestead and "Tree Claim" to the bank. They rented an 80-acre farm but again lost everything but a team of horses and a wagon to the bank in 1894. It was around this time that Orville's parents and siblings all moved west to California.

Dora's former father-in-law, Sylvester Dewey, sent the family $35 to move back to Mazon Township in Illinois. It took six weeks, travelling every day but Sunday, and on Saturday nights Dora took down an old stove and baked bread for the upcoming week. The family finally arrived in Mazon Township in October and lived with Sylvester Dewey until resettling on a farm in March 1895 where they lived in a two-story "shanty" "eighty rods from the main road in the timbers." They lived there until 1902, when, as previously agreed, the farm was given to stepson Charles Dewey upon his marriage. Orville and Dora moved off the farm, presumably nearby.

On May 19, 1905, double tragedy struck when stepson Walter Dewey succumbed to tuberculosis after a year's battle, and Charles' one-year-old son Lester died from "convulsions caused by teething." Pastor Rev. J. L. Hoyt conducted a double funeral for the Dewey boys at the Congregational Church and both were laid to rest at Mazon Cemetery.

Orville and Dora moved about 20 miles west to Marseilles, La Salle County, Illinois, in the fall of 1907.

Asenth Endora (Smith Dewey) Fisher died on February 24, 1910, following surgery at Mary Thompson Hospital in Chicago. Her funeral was held in Marseilles and she was buried at Brookside Cemetery in Mazon on February 27. She was only 48 years old.[Grave]

Soon after Dora's death, Orville removed a little ways west into neighboring La Salle County, where he and his three youngest boys lived in Marseilles, at the head of the "Grand Rapids" along the Illinois River, on Commercial Street. There Orville worked as a teamster for a paper mill, son Fred as a factory laborer, and son Arthur as a painter in a factory.[Cen 1910]

Orville remarried to a woman named Sarah ("Sadie") around 1913 (when Sadie was 40 years old[Cen 1930]) and took in his widowed mother Harriet6 at their home on Commercial Street in the late 1910s. His youngest son Lawrence, a checker at the paper mill, lived next door.[Cen 1920]

Orville H. Fisher died in 1928 and was buried alongside his first wife, Dora, at Brookside Cemetery in Mazon Township, Grundy County, Illinois. He was about 61 years old.[Grave]

Minnie A. (FISHER) ROBINSON (1869-~1903)

1CA3. Minnie (or Millie) A. Fisher was born about August 1869 in Nebraska, probably in Big Sandy, Hobbs Precinct, Sherman County. She married John Hill Robinson about 1887 or 1888.[Cen 1900]

1CA31. Ethel L. Robinson 15 Feb 1889 31 Oct 1945 (56)
1CA32. Roy Robinson Dec 1892 --  -- 
1CA32. Emma M. Robinson (1900-1901) --  -- 

Based on the 1900 census, both children were born in Nebraska so their migration to California was after 1892, likely around 1894 when Minnie's parents and brothers David and Theodoric moved to California.[Cen 1900]

Minnie A. (Fisher) Robinson likely died in 1903 or 1904, probably in Sonoma County, California. The 1910 census records her widowed husband John, who had been married for 16 years, with their son Roy in Santa Rosa.[Cen 1910]

David A. FISHER (1871-)

1CA4. David A. Fisher was born in March 1871 in Nebraska, probably in Big Sandy, Hobbs Precinct, Sherman County. He was likely named for his grandfather King David Fisher. He moved to California by 1895 and married Annie Blakeley in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, on December 24, 1895. Their ceremony was officiated by O. T. Baldwin.

By 1896 he was living in west Redwood near Guerneville in Sonoma County, California, not far from his brother Theodoric in Forestville. At this time he was a blacksmith who is described as being 6' 3½" tall with a dark complexion, blue eyes, and brown hair. He had a tattoo on his right arm.

Over the next few years they moved to Merced County, California where David worked as a wood chopper.[Cen 1900]

David and Annie are both believed to be buried at the McPeak Cemetery in Forestville, Sonoma County, California, as are David's brother Theodoric and his wife Harriet.

Theodoric Leathe FISHER4 (1877-1911)

Theodoric Leathe FISHER, 1898 1CA5. Theodoric "Bud" Leathe Fisher4 was said to have been born in Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska, on March 23, 1877, however, at about that time the Fisher family was probably living in Sherman County in central Nebraska. He was apparently named after his paternal uncle. Theodoric married Cora Ethel Miller of Old Creek, San Luis Obispo County, California, on March 22, 1898. They had two boys and five daughters:

1CA51. Howard Earl Fisher 30 Jan 1899 15 Jan 1966 (66)
1CA52. Pearl Elizabeth Fisher5 7 Jan 1901 30 Oct 1941 (40)
1CA53. Mildred May Fisher 27 Dec 1902 8 Apr 1989 (86)

1CA56. Sonoma C. Fisher 8 Dec 1907 2 Jul 1993 (85)
1CA57. Alta Vivian Fisher 3 Aug 1909 22 Feb 1910 (6 mos.)

Theodoric & Cora FISHER, 1898 About 1894, the Fisher family moved to California with Cora's family. By 1896 they had settled in Forestville, Sonoma County, not far from Theodoric's brother David in nearby Guerneville. Theodoric's voter registration on August 13, 1898, listed him as a blacksmith, as was his father, and described him as standing 6' 3" tall with gray eyes, and dark hair.

Theodoric L. Fisher married Cora E. Miller on March 22, 1898, in Santa Rosa (Fulton), Sonoma County, California. They were married by J. Brown, with Theodoric's older brother David Fisher and sister-in-law Annie Fisher, both residents of Forestville, in attendance.

Come 1900, Theodoric, Cora, and Theodoric's parents moved briefly to Stillwater, Churchill County, Nevada, east of Reno. There Theodoric worked as a farm laborer and his father worked as a blacksmith for the John W. and Hannah Freeman family. Interestingly, Cora was noted in the census as having had one child (Howard Earl), but he was not enumerated with them.[Cen 1900]

Six months later, the Fishers swung back through Lockeford, San Joaquin County, California, where their first daughter Pearl was born, and a little later resettled briefly in Forestville, where Mildred was born in 1902.

Around 1903, the Fisher family moved to the Asti Winery near Cloverdale where Theodoric worked as a foreman and had four more children. Theodoric's father died in 1906 and in 1910 his mother remarried to Ira T. Williams, a widower Civil War veteran. During this time, Theodoric slowly wasted away from consumption (tuberculosis) over a period of six years, the last three or four he was mostly bedridden. Cora helped support the family by picking hops. Bud became friends with Ira's son Al, who kept the family fed with fresh game. They lived there until the Theodoric's death.

During this time Theodoric became very ill with consumption (tuberculosis) andWife Cora got a job picking hops to support the family during this time.

Theodoric "Bud" Leathe Fisher succumbed to tuberculosis and died on January 25, 1911, at the early age of 33. He and Cora had only been married 12 years and left Cora with six children between the ages of 5 and 10 years. Bud is buried at Mount Olive Cemetery, Cloverdale, Sonoma County, California.

Widow Cora remarried and went on to have four more children.

Frederick William FISHER (~1869-)

X. Frederick William Fisher, a possible relative to the John Jackson Fisher family, was a resident of Cloverdale in 1902[Vote 1902]. He was born about 1869.

Ida B. FISHER (1874-)

1CD1. Ida B. Fisher was born in October 1874 in Nebraska. She was the first child of Sylvester and Mary J. Fisher, from Indiana and Ohio respectively.

Charles Sylvester FISHER (~1876-1949)

1CD2. Charles Sylvester Fisher was born on May 11, 1876 or 1877, in Franklin County, Nebraska. He possibly migrated to California for a time with uncle, John Jackson Fisher, who settled in Sonoma County, and could be the Charles Fisher found there in Healdsburg in 1898[Vote 1898]. He returned to Nebraska by 1900 where he settled in Kearney, Buffalo County.[Cen 1900] Charles married Verna Mae Wiles on November 9, 1916, in Rock County, Nebraska. They had six children:

1CD21. Charles Rockwell "Rocky" Fisher 30 Nov 1917 8 Dec 1964 (47)
1CD22. William P. Fisher 30 Oct 1918 5 Jan 1968 (49)

Charles of Healdsburg, 1898

The 1898 Great Register of Voters records a Charles Fisher in 1898 who was described as age 22, 6' 6" tall, light complexion, grey eyes, and brown hair. He was a laborer from Nebraska who resided in Healdsburg No. 1.[Vote 1898]

The potential correlation of this Charles to Charles Sylvester is based solely on name, age, birth state, and uncommonly characteristic height.

Charles moved a little ways down river to Wood River, Dawson County, Nebraska by 1930[Cen 1930] for a time but later returned to Kearney.

Charles Sylvester Fisher died on July 24, 1949, in Kearney. He was 72 or 73 years old.
