OLD RESIDENT DEAD

Christopher C. Fisher, fifty years a prominent citizen of Wolcott, died at the Mary Fletcher Hospital in Burlington Dec. 4, where he had been taken after having his left leg crushed by a falling tree on the previous day. Born in Thuringia, Germany, in 1841, he came with his parents to the vicinity of Burlington in 1847. He served over three years in Co. I, 6th Vt. Regt. He married Sarah A. Demag of Jericho, and came to this town soon after. She died in 1875, leaving two sons, and he married Emma S. Tillotson in 1879, who, with four sons, survive him. He had held nearly all town offices, and was several times commander of Foster Post, G.A.R.

Funeral services were held from his home Dec. 7, Rev. H. Earl Sweet of the Methodist Church, of which he was a member, officiating; and burial in Davenport Cemetery.

He was a highly respected citizen.
