DEATH OF FORMER WOLCOTT RESIDENT
The following from The Enterprise of Dec. 17 printed at Culdesac, Idaho, will be read with regret by Lamoille County readers.
The deceased was, for many years, a resident of Wolcott. He was a member of Co. D, 11th Vt. and also served for a time in the Sixth Vt.
"John Henry Fisher of this place died in Lewiston, Dec. 14th, from complications due to old age. He was born in Germany in 1836 and came to America when 17 years old with his parents who settled in Vermont.
The deceased enlisted in the civil war of 1861, serving on the side of the Union Army.
Soon after leaving the service he united in marriage to Miss Mary Davis, who died in 1874, one child, Mrs. Flora Wampnar, of Culdesac, resulting from the union. Deceased later moved in 1879 to Madison, S.D., where he resided until 1894, when he came to Culdesac where he lived until his death.
He has been a member of the Methodist Church since boyhood, and has lived a faithful Christian life. He was a man of noble character of sterling worth, and in his demise the community loses one of its best citizens."
