Stanford M. Fisher, 89 years of age, Civil War veteran and for m ore than 50 years a resident of this city died this morning in his home 174 Meadow street following an illness from a complication if ailments which began last November.

Born in Brattleboro, Vt., Mr. Fisher grew to young manhood there and when the Civil War was declared he enlisted in the 16th Infantry regiment Vermont Volunteers and served in important engagements during the conflict.

Soon after the close of the war he came to this city to make his home and had resided here ever since. He was a member of C. D. Sanford post, G.A.R.

For many years, Mr. Fisher conducted a "city express" which was a forerunner of the automobile rental business. In that line he was successful but failing health and eyesight compelled him to retire which he did a number of years ago.

He was an attendant of the First Baptist church and is survived only by his wife.

Mr. Fisher was a man of sterling character and was highly respected for his strict business principles to which he faithfully adhered at all times.

His body was taken to the funeral parlors of L.A. Simmons where it will remain until the time for the funeral which will take place Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in the parlors of Grand Army hall. Rev. Dr. Daniel H. Clare will officiate and burial will be in Hillside cemetery. It is requested that no flowers be sent.
