Mrs. Mary Fisher

The East Liverpool Tribune

Mrs. Mary Fisher died at 2 o'clock Tuesday morning (Apr. 10, 1906) at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Clark Moore, in Avondale street, from the infirmities of old age, being in her 88th year. She was the wife of Samuel Fisher, who preceded her in death 26 years ago. She was the mother of eight children, four of whom survive as follows; Mrs. Clark Moore, Avondale street; Henry and A. J. Fisher, Calcutta street; Jefferson Fisher, of Crafton, Pa.

Mrs. Fisher's maiden name was Richardson. She was born and raised on a farm on which is now located the town of Negley. Her parents were of Quaker descent and she attended the Quaker church in her childhood day. In 1835 she was united in marriage to Samuel Fisher, and for a number of years they resided on the farm now known as "Home Land" of this city.

Early in life she became a member of the Long Run Presbyterian church and when her health would permit she was a regular attendant upon divine services. She was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her.

The funeral services will be held at the home of the daughter in Avondale street tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock the Rev. J. N. Swan the venerable Presbyterian minister, being in charge. Interment will be made in Riverview Cemetery.
