Johann Heinrich Fischer

St. Johns, Franklin, Missouri

Born December 27, 1853 in Borgloh / Wellendorf.
Parents: David Heinrich Licher called Fischer and Maria Catharina Schröder.
He was the third out of seven siblings.

Departed Bremen, Germany aboard the ship "Donau" and arrived in New York November 7, 1870. A Maria Fischer (three years younger than he) accompanied him. I believe that it was his sister Maria Elisabeth, though she died in 1917 in Germany (Borgloh).
Johann Heinrich married Maria Catharina Sulltrop who was born in Washington. They had seven children: Henry J. (*1889), August (*1892), Guy Fred (*1894), Fritz (*1897), William (*1899), Mary (*1902) and Edward (*1904).
