Philip Fischer Sheboygan Press June 30, 1928
Glenbeulah—Philip Fischer, aged 86 years, died at his home here this morning form infirmities incident to old age. He was a veteran of the Civil war. The aged veteran was born at Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany, coming to America when he was eighteen years of age. He settled in the town of Rhine on a farm now owned by Walter Bruns. Sixty-three years ago Mr. Fischer was united in marriage with Miss Anna Rossman, who died several years later. About fifty years ago he was united in marriage with Lena Samse, who passed away two years ago. After he left the old homestead, which was a short distance north of Glenbeulah, Mr. Fischer came here to live.
He is survived by four sons, George of Wisconsin Rapids, John of Sheboygan, Emil of Glenbeulah, and Fred of Middleton, Idaho, eighteen grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and one great great grandchild also survive.
At the age of 19, when volunteers for the Civil war were asked for, Mr. Fischer, together with six more young men of town Rhine, went to Sheboygan where they volunteered on September 14, 1861, all to serve for a term of three years. All of these young men were natives of Germany, and went to fight for their country as boys of 18 and 19 years of age. Besides serving in the Civil war, Mrs. Fischer did a great deal for the World War and gave all he could to help the boys.
A military funeral will be held this week. Mr. Fischer was a member of the Glenbeulah-Greenbush Herbert Haslee Post No. 261, which will have charge of the funeral.
