I need your help with a family genealogy project that I have undertaken. I am trying to find documentation that will help me establish the relationship between a father, Jeremiah Fisher, and his son, also named Jeremiah Fisher. I’m hoping that someone from one of these men’s descendants or descendents of their siblings may have some type of information that will prove the relationship of these two men.
The information that I currently have is as follows:
I believe that Jeremiah Fisher, Senior’s children were:
I believe that Jeremiah Senior married Sabra when he was 40 years old
He may also have had a first wife, however, I do not know her name.
The detailed information that I have been able to find about Jeremiah Fisher Senior is as follows:
He was born May 23, 1765 possibly in Connecticut.
Military history includes:
*Rank: Private, Wagoneer
*1780: His father (name not clearly established) was drafted to serve in Captain Couche’s Company of the Continental Troops. His father was unable to do this required duty, so Jeremiah took his place. He joined the army at the age of 15 and was mustered in at the town of Washington in Litchfield County, Connecticut. He served for a period of 2 months.
*1781: Enlisted in Colonel Willis’ Continental Troop in Connecticut and served 9 months.
* 1781-1782: Enlisted as a Wagoneer for General Skidmore for one year.
*1782-1782: Enlisted under Captain Blakelee and Colonel Fletcher of Vermont and served for 9 months.
*Jeremiah Senior served for a total of 32 months.
*Sources for this information are:

The detailed information that I have been able to find about Jeremiah Fisher Junior is as follows:

1840: lived with his first wife, Castina (Nearr) in Willsboro, Essex County, New York

1900: lived in Township of Fox, Kendall County, Illinois with his son Adelbert Jeremiah Fisher
Death November 21, 1900 while living with his son in Town of Armenia, Wisconsin.
Because I have been unable to locate a birth certificate for Jeremiah Fisher, Junior, I cannot establish the link to his father, Jeremiah Fisher, Senior.
If you have any documentation that would serve to establish this link, and you are willing to share it with me, I would sincerely appreciate your kindness.
