Notes for Hiram G. Fisher
Hiram G. Fisher is known with reasonable certainty to be the son of Elijah Fisher, based on the following evidence:

In a deed dated 12 July 1869, Emily Tharp and her husband John A. Tharp, Jr., conveyed to Henry Tolls of Jackson, Hinds Co MS, their one-seventh interest in 200 acres of land, “the said interest hereby conveyed being an undivided interest of one seventh in and to all of said lands. It being the entire interest in said lands inherited by said Emily Tharp from her deceased father Hiram Fisher and her deceased brother Joseph Fisher.” For a copy of this deed, found by descendant David Tharp and provided to Clayton Heathcock in 2009, see http://heathcock.org/genealogy/Tharp.pdf.

The described land was:

160 acres as follows: Township 6, Range 1W, NE quarter of Section 36
40 acres as follows: Township 6, Range 1W, S half of the W half of the SE quarter of Section 25

These two parcels were first entered by Elijah Fisher, as follows:414

12 Mar 1825, 160.24 acres was entered by Elijah Fisher in the Jackson Land Office: Township 6N, 1W, E half of the NE quarter and W half of the NE quarter Section 36

21 Sep 1835, 40.17 acres was entered by Elijah Fisher in the Mt Salus Land Office: Township 6N, 1W, S half of the W half of the SE quarter of Section 25

It is also notable that Henry Tolls, the person to whom the Tharps conveyed their interest, was the husband of Saphronia Robbins, eldest daughter of Almond Robbins and Catherine Fisher. Saphronia Robbins and Emily Tharp were first cousins.
