Birth

Date 23 September 1888
Place Memphis, Shelby, Tennessee, USA
Description Sometime after 1910, Fisher started using a birth year of 1885, six months after his parents marriage, before his elder brother’s birth and clearly conflicting 1900 & 1910 census records. His social security registration in 1959 shows this later year.
