St Lawrence County, NY Biographies

Fisher, John C., Madrid, was born in the town of Madrid, October 8, 1844, a son of William and Euphernia (McDonald) Fisher. His whole life has been spent on the farm his father first settled and cleared. He was educated in the common schools and at the old St. Lawrence County Academy in Potadam. At the death of his father in 1875 the farm (which now contains 187 1/2 acres) fell to him, and is conducted as a dairy, with thirty head of cattle. The old stone residence superseded the first log house, and was built by William Fisher over forty five years ago. Since Mr. Fisher became owner of this old historic place he has made many valuable improvements to it in the way of new barns, out buildings, etc. Mr. Fisher has always taken an active interest in politics and is a Republican, but has never been an aspirant for public office. His whole life has been devoted to his borne and family. He is a member of the Scotch Presbyterian church. Mr. Fisher married December 5, 1868, Minnie R, daughter of Charles Roswell, a merchant of Potsdam, and they have had four children: Charles, who died at nine years of age; Mabel Louise, who died at two years. The living ones are: Alexander Fisher, now nineteen years of age, who assists his father on the farm; and Ernest, aged seven years.
