John Fisher in Heidelberg Township
Posted by: Bud Davis (ID *****6380) Date: March 26, 2014 at 13:19:35
  of 1829

My paternal Great Grandfather John William Fisher was born 15 July 1852 and died 4 May 1936 in Mansfield, Ohio. I do not know where he was born. On a IGI Individual Record compiled by the Latter Day Saints, I found: Christening of John Fisher, born 16 July 1852. Christened 14 November 1852 at St John's Hains Reformed Church, Lower Heidelberg Township, Berks County, PA. Father: John Fisher; Mother: Catharine. On 35 of the Journal of the Berks County Genealogical Society (Vol. 14, No. 4) entitled Johan Wilhelm Fischer, I found: John Fisher (son of John Fisher and Catharina Baum). Born Dec. 31, 1820. John was a carpenter at Leesport. He m. Kate Fox, and among their children were Sarah, Emma m. a Merkle, Catharine, John, and Nora m. a Merkle. I suspect that John's and Kate's son is my Great Grandfather. I believe that John and Kate are the parents from the IGI Record. Is there anyone who can substantiate this for me?
