Jo Marks I'm having trouble finding info on my g-g-grandfather, Lewis Benjamin Fisher. He was born in Gaston County, NC in the 1880's and died in 1952. He married Sarah Lenara Starnes and they had 10 children. I need to know his parents names and his family tree. The story goes that one of our ancestors shot a deer in the Kaisers forest in Germany to feed his family. He had to leave Germany or be imprisoned or killed for the offense. That's how we got here, but I don't know when that was. Can anyone help me?

Fisher Country of Origin, Nationality, & Ethnicity

The nationality of Fisher can be difficult to determine in cases which countries change over time, making the original nationality a mystery. The original ethnicity of Fisher may be in dispute as result of whether the family name came about organically and independently in different locales; e.g. in the case of last names that come from professions, which can appear in multiple places independently (such as the last name "Brewster" which refers to a female brewer). The Fishers came over to the USA  in 1854 with other companions such as the Welders, Carrisers, Clerts, Orberson and the Selmions.
