      Mathias Fisher married Martha Thompson, who died August, 1828. Her father was a staunch Presbyterian and objected to the marriage on the grounds that Mathias Fisher had never been baptized. However, she had no such scruples and left her father’s house, never to enter it again. Following the marriage they settled on a part of the old Fisher farm.

      Children:
      1. John, married Sarah Roberts and settled near New Castle, Pennsylvania.
      2. Abel, married Hannah Stewart. (Stewart I, Child 7.)
      3. Thomas, married Polly Kells.
      4. Polly, married Barachiah Stewart. (Stewart II, Child 10.)
      5. Thompson.
      6. Rachel, of whom further.

      He paid his addresses to Miss Martha Thompson, but her father being a staunch Presbyterian, objected to the match because Mr. Fisher had never been baptized. Miss Thompson, however, had no such scruples of conscience, but ran away, as they called it then; she left her father’s house and never entered it again.
