    Harlan M. Fisher, a native and resident of Bristol, was born February 25, 1850, and is a son of Alphonso G., a son of Nathaniel, whose father, Nathaniel, was a native of Dighton Mass., who about 1800 came to Bristol and settled.

    Nathaniel, Jr., was born in Dighton, Mass., and came to Bristol with his parents. He was a colonel in the War of 1812, and was a prominent man. He was held in great respect by the Indians, who often stopped on their hunting expeditions to stay over night with Skianagha, as they called him, perhaps leaving some of their trophies of the chase as they departed in the morning.

    His wife was Lovice Phillips of Dighton, Mass., who bore him one son and two daughters. He died in Bristol in 1855, and his wife in 1863.

    Alphonso was born in Bristol November 16, 1816, and married Almeda, daughter of John Worrallo, who was lost on Lake Erie.

    Mr. Fisher and wife had two sons, Harlan M. and Edgar N., the latter a farmer of Bristol. Mr. Fisher was an active politician, yet never accepted office. He died November 19, 1891, and his wife resides on the old homestead.

    Subject was educated in Canandaigua Academy, graduating in 1878, and taught school for nineteen years in connection with farming. He owns 165 acres of land and is a general farmer. He makes a specialty of breeding bronze turkeys, Holstein cattle and Berkshire swine. He is a member of the Ontario County Agricultural Society, and for four years has lectured at Farmers' Institutes in New York, under the auspices of the State Agricultural Society, on various subjects connected with agriculture, and is considered a drainage expert. He is a Republican, and was assessor two terms.

    In 1872, he married Helen L., daughter of the late Benjamin F. Phillips of Bristol. They reside on the farm settled by Elnathan Gooding, grandfather of Mrs. Fisher and the first settler of Bristol, who came there at the age of seventeen and remained alone the first winter.

    One incident is perhaps worthy of mention as illustrating the material of the sturdy yeomanry of New England who settled the Empire State. While young Gooding was chopping down the thick forest to clear for crops, he heard a twig snap, and glancing over his shoulder saw a large savage standing back of him with a tomahawk raised to deal the deadly blow. Without deigning to give the Indian further notice, he kept on chopping, never missing a single stroke.

    The Indian, admiring his coolness in the trying circumstances, quietly slipped the tomahawk in his belt with an "Ugh, white man no scare", disappeared in the dense woods. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Fisher are: Ethel L., Ada E., Harlan A., Rex P., Almeda L., and Marion E. Ethel L. is a student at Cook Academy at Havana NY.

    HARLAN M. FISHER

    Harlan N. Fisher, a life long and highly respected citizen of this county, and for many years prominent both as a farmer and as a politician, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lester P. Bliss, on the Hickox Road yesterday morning after a brief illness.

    Harlan N. Fisher was born in Bristol, February 25, 1850, the son of Alphonso G. and Almeda Warollo Fisher. He was married in 1872 to Helen Louise Phillips of Bristol, who died on February 11, 1901.

    Mr. Fisher secured his education in the common schools, and at the old Canandaigua Academy, and had an extended experience as a teacher, including several years as principal of the Honeoye Union School.

    He served the town of Bristol several terms as assessor, and in 1896 ass its representative on the board of supervisors. In 1897 he was appointed an agent under the newly organized state excise department, and served with that department until March 31, 1911, the last several years as acting superintendent of agents.

    Following his retirement from this office he returned to his farm home in Bristol, and there resided until failing health impelled him to give up active work, and he spent his remaining years with his children.

    He is survived by four daughters, and two sons, Mrs. Robert B. Fisher, of Cambridge, NY., Mrs. Lester P. Bliss, of Canandaigua, Harlan A. Fisher, East Bloomfield, Rex P. Fisher, Canandaigua, Almeda L. Fisher, Canandaigua, and Mrs. Rolland A. Bliss of East Bloomfield. There are also 18 grandchildren, three great grandchildren, surviving.

    Funeral will take place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lester P. Bliss on Thursday afternoon, Rev. H. S. Carstens of Bristol Congregational Church officiating. Interment in Evergreen at Baptist Hill.
