William H. H. Fisher

Rutland Daily Herald, Oct. 1, 1897:

W.H.H. Fisher died late yesterday afternoon at his home on West street, after a lingering illness of about 17 weeks. He retired from business in May, 1896 and had been in feeble health from that time.

Mr. Fisher had lived in Rutland all his life with the exception of eight years, during which time he was managing drug stores in St. Johnsbury, Brattleboro and St. Albans. He was born on the Fisher homestead at the corner of West and Court streets in January, 1841. At the breaking out of the rebellion, Mr. Fisher enlisted in company D, 7th Vermont volunteers, and remained with his company for over four years. In 1880 he bought the drug store now owned by McClallen & Farmer on Merchants' row, which he ran for 16 years.

Mr. Fisher was a prominent fraternity man, being a Mason and an Odd Fellow. He belonged to Rutland chapter, No. 79, Davenport chapter, No. 14, Killington commandery, No. 6 and the Mystic Shrine; also Killington lodge and the local Grand Army post.

Mr. Fisher married Nellie A. Talbot of Woodstock in 1870, who died nine years later. By her he had three children, Miss Nellie Fisher, Miss Agnes T. Fisher and Mark P. Fisher. In 1885 he married Mary E. Vincent, who survives him, as does also a sister, Mrs. W.F. Morrill of New Albany, Ind.

The funeral will be held at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon at the Methodist church. The Masons will have charge of the services.
