  • Notes 
    • "The Fisher Line", Compiled by Margaret Fisher and Betty Fisher Cox, p. 1;

      "Nicholas Fisher, ancestor of thousands of descendants, left a legacy of family tradition that as been handed down through the generations of Fishers. This family tradition includes a mystery surrounding the land of his nativity. Was he born in America, or was he "Black Dutch"? This was a name from the area around the Rhine River valley that later became a part of Germany. The immigrants would do down the Rhine to Holland where they would sail for the new world, usually setting in Pennsylvania. Many of them later moved southward to Maryland and Virginia because of the harsh winters in Pennsylvania, and the availability of land. From Tennessee to west Kentucky the family tradition persists that Nicholas was Black Dutch.
