1.  ALBERT5 FISHER  (JACOB4, JOHN3, GEORGE FISHER2 FISCHER, JURGE1 FISHER) was born 13 Nov 1843 in Parke County , IN, and died 15 Feb 1914 in Catlin, Parke County.  He married MARY ELIZABETH WHITE 19 Oct 1865 in Mecca, Parke County, IN, daughter of BASIL WHITE and MATILDA HUNTER. She was born 1844.




Albert FISHER, son of Jacob and Nancy FISHER, was born in Parke County, Indiana, November 13, 1843; died February 15, 1914, aged 70 years, 3 months and 2 days.  Mr FISHER spent his boyhood days in the county where he was born, and growing to young manhood, living in the time of the outbreak of the war of the rebellion, early became enthused by the impulse of war and it's probable achievements, and following the example of his young men associates, enlisting in the United States service in defense of his country.  Not being satisfied by the first enlistment and trials of the solder life, he re enlisted the second and third time, remaining practically in the Service throughout that long, bloody war.  It was upon a time of furlough, coming home, he met and became acquainted with Miss Mary E. WHITE.  The friendship ripened into love, and growing stronger resulting in their marriage October 19, 1865, following closely the close of the war.  To this happy union were born four children. The mourning widow, together with the remnant of children are left behind. One child dying in infancy, one daughter dying March 23, 1913, Rufus E. residing in Clinton, Indiana and Ora W. of Corina California, also seven grandchildren living.  The deceased has one brother, John FISHER living in Nevada, Missouri, and three half brothers -- Wm F., Edward G. and Sherman R of Parke County, also two half -sisters Nancy I BRINDLEY and Melissa A. MARTIN of Vermillion County.  The departed was a member of the Methodist Episcopal; Church for a period of twenty-five years.  His relatives and friends have reason to believe that his faith in the atonement of our Savior has been sufficient.  His allegiance to the great principles of the higher life.  Unknown source.  

Albert FISHER was a quiet unassuming character, who regarded all rights of his fellowmen as he did those of his own, thus drawing around him friendship both respected and lasting.  While a loving and kind affectionate father and grandfather has passed from mortal scenes and actions, the family gather to give him their last respect and love to a common memorial. The burial took place on Tues. the 17th of Feb. 1914, preached by Rev A. R. Simpson or Montezuma after which a large delegation of Odd Fellows performed the last sad yet tender burial service peculiar to that grand order.  A goodly number of the Grand Army members were present, ready to give their customary services to the memory of an old comrade, but omitted most of the ritual on account of lack of time and inclement weather.  The body was laid to rest on the hill of Mount Olivet Church to await the trumpet call.  David Strouse, who knew Mr. FISHER well and who was an honorary member of MR. FISHER's first regiment, the Indiana Regiment, has furnished the following short tribute to his record as a soldier.  He was mustered in Company A of the 14th Indiana Regiment June 7, 1861 and was discharged for disabilities May 13, 1862.  August 1, 1862 he enlisted in Company "C" of the 78th Indiana, and was taken prisoner at the battle of Uniontown, Kentucky, and paroled.  He again enlisted in Company F of the 11th Indiana Cavalry December 9, 1863, and was mustered out with the regiment September 19, 1865.  His services as a soldier, being a member of several regiments, thus exemplifies his loyalty to his country and his flag.  He was an honest, conscientious soldier as well as citizen, as all those who knew him testify.  Unknown source.
