Biography of Jacob P. Fisher


Fisher, Jacob P., part owner of one of Buffalo's most prominent malt houses, was born October 18, 1835, in the town of Amherst, Erie county, N. Y. In 1847 his father sold his farm and moved to Buffalo with his family, where Jacob received a parochial and public school education. In 1862 his brother, George Fisher, established himself in the malting business and in 1865 admitted Jacob P. and Philip Houck to membership and the firm has since been known as Fisher Bros. & Co. Mr. Fisher is an energetic. enterprising, upright citizen and well deserves the success and personal popularity he has achieved in his nearly fifty years' residence in Buffalo. He has been twice married, first, in 1859, to Josephine Beckert of Buffalo, who died in 1862; and the second time to Margaret Willyoung of Bowmansville, N. Y., in May, 1870.
