The following obituary was published in the Haverhill Museum (Haverhill, New Hampshire), April 29, 1806:

DIED—At Londonderry, (N.H.) on the 10th instant, Deacon SAMUEL FISHER, in the 84th year of his age. It is not more than simple truth to observe, that he possessed a strength of intellectual capacity, with a steadfast sincerity of heart, which do honor to his memory as a man and as a christian. Master of a pathetic perspicuity and solemnity of address, especially on interesting subjects, he commanded a respectful attention of those he conversed with, whether learned or illiterate. Far from engrossing the conversation, he was sociable, free, solid, orderly and edifying. From early life he was a fervent professor of religion, which was his favorite study; and soon became and continued to be an established character for reputation and usefulness, as a father in Israel and a ruling elder in the church of God. Much respected as a citizen, esteemed as a husband, honored as an instructing and exemplary father, diligent in business, patient in trouble, pious and punctual in devotional duties, he lived; with resignation to, and desires for death, he died; recommending Christ and religion to the living. He has left an aged consort bereaved of her companion, with 12 children, 76 grand-children, and 53 great-grand-children (total 141) from him descended, to remember and imitate his virtue. --The righteous hath hope in his death.
