Information from S.C. Turnbo:

The body was carried some 200 yards from where the man met death and placed under a small apple tree on the Ace Turley land where a grave was dug and the body was lowered into it with the same clothes that he was shot to death in and without a coffin. Fishers clothes had been badly torn by the hogs while they were consuming a portion of the body. It is said that the apple tree that Fisher was buried under stood there until it was a large tree. In the course of time while this land was being cultivated some of his bones were turned up by the plow, the parties being ignorant as to the exact locality of the grave. After this time the spot of ground where the bones were exposed was not disturbed any more. The land on which Fisher was buried is called now the Jim Martin farm.
