from the 1976 Hendricks County History (pages 283-284):

Emma was a daughter of George and Eula (Sallwhite) Jackson. She married William Francis (Frank) Fisher on December 19, 1897. They were the parents of one child, a son, George Leroy (Roy) Fisher. She was the victim of poor health many years of her life but, despite physical weakness, she maintained a well-kept home. She was an ambitious farm wife, excelling in raising Buff Orphington chickens and becoming an expert in culinary arts. She was a member of the Methodist Ladies Aid, later the W.S.C.S. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and a longtime member of the Pittsboro Study Club.
