About Me

I have been doing family research for almost 20 years.  It started out as just a little bit of curiousity as to who I was and where did I really come from.  From this I have went back  to college and minored in history.  I love it and who ever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks was wrong.

I am a Fulton/ Brown descendent originating in Broad Top, Pa. I've been struggling to put the pieces together for almost 20 years on that line. That line was a taboo conversation and quite a mystery. Earliest I can trace is about 1850 and most of that is conjecture. Am looking for any help I can get. 3xgf Alexander (Alex) Fulton 1825 Civil War Registration.

One day I came across your posting of the Johnston family album.  I couldn't believe my luck.  I am not a Johnston but I was trying to find photos of my Shollar line and there were no shortage of them there.  There were several wonderful pictures of my three greats Uncle Fred Shollar and his wife Lydia (Johnston) as well as their children Marjorie and Gerald.  Also the photo of Fred's mother, Isabel Cooper Shollar who lived in Williamsburg, Pa and was the wife of Capt James Stewart Shollar who served in the civil war. Another bit of luck is that I had been in touch with Marjorie Shollar's granddaughter and was able to tell her of all the wonderful Shollar and Johnston photos at the Histrory of Woodcock Valley.

About Me

I have spent the last ten years researching my ancestor John David Fisher. He married Margaret Weaver and moved from Huntindon, Pa in 1854 to Illinois. He purchased 40 acres of land in 1850 for $1.25 an acre. The land grant is signed by Willard Fillmore President of the United States. My quest to prove whom where his parents. There are so mamy Henry Fishers and  just need to sort out the correct one.

I carry on the Fisher trait of height, being the shortest of four brothers at six foot three inches. My dad was six foot five inches tall. Thanks to Deb Fisher Riley for pointing out this web site.

Update: I spent part of a day at the Land Office in Dixon, Illinois. I was able to get a copy of the Land Grant of Henry Fisher and his wife. i later went to the land he had bought and talked with the present owner. He thought his family were somehow related. But he never checked into to history. He said his family were from the same area in PA. That his family had bought Land Grant Land in 1841. Another trip back to the Land Office proved to be correct. William Fisher bought Land Grant in China Township now known as Franklin Grove. I was able to get a copy of this Deed.

This now has open up a whole lot of more questions! Somehow My Henry Fisher and William Fisher are related. Maybe someone in Huntingdon PA kowns this William Fisher.

I am planning another trip to Dixon, Il  Courthouse for more records on this Fisher side.
