    Harlan Morton Fisher Family Sketch
    From the HISTORY OF ONTARIO COUNTY, compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich, edited by George S. Conover, 1893

    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.
