165. Ann E. Fisher

A student named Ann E. Fisher turns up in the rolls of the Mordecai school that I assembled in 1996. She was at the school in 1811. And it looks like she died that year, too.

"Pd. Thos Reynolds for a coffin. AE Fisher 20."

That's the line in the school's ledger for December 1811.  (Because running a school in the 1810s sometimes meant buying a coffin.)

Really wish I knew anything else about her. But I don't, and her name is too common to find much online. Anyone?

Next up alphabetically, the Fitts family. Buckle up.
