Joseph Franklin Fisher

My gggrandfather Joseph Franklin Fisher was born Mar 11 1837 Mercer Cty., PA. Or it could have been Lawrence, Beaver, Butler, Crawford, or Venango.

The family may have lived in Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning, or Columbiana Ohio.

He married first Lucy P. South(Scutt,Scuth) though I don't know when or where. They had two boys Buck and Jerry. They were divorced between Nov 1865-Jan1866, however I don't know where.

Joseph joined the Civil war in IL. I do know when and where.
After the divorce, he remarried Elizabeth Gates (Getz, Goetz) in March of 1866. Buck and Jerry lived with them for a few years, but once more children started coming they went to live somewhere else, and I don't know where or with whom.

If anyone has any information it would be appreciated as this is my brick wall.

Thanks Sheryl
