  1. I grew up in Fisher. My Grandfather was the Millwright for twenty-five years and he and my Grandmother are buried in the old Fisher Cemetery. It has been many years since my last visit, however I plan to visit again. It has really changed since I was there, but the old house is still there…wonder if the old cattle crossing still makes as much noise as it use to…
