Here lies buried the body of Mrs. Agnes the wife of Mr. Samuel Fisher who departed this life April 17, 1747 in the 21st year of her age.

Note: Stone cleaned 07 Aug 2009

Her mother was Janet Wilson but Janet's burial place is unknown.

Agnes (Sarah) Taylor and Samuel Fisher had one daughter, Nancy (Agnes) Fisher, b. 17 April 1747, which means that Agnes died during childbirth.



Agnes Taylor, dau. of Matthew and Jennet Taylor, b. Mar. 6, 1725/6 per the original handwritten first Londonderry Town Book, entered contemporaneous within the era in which she lived, likely from the Taylor family bible. The date represents a birth on Mar. 6, 1725 in the older Julian calendar, now written historically as Mar. 6, 1725/26 in the modern Gregorian calender, latter adopted by England in 1752. On the other hand, the 1906 record of her birth, as copied by the then town clerk under the State of New Hampshire requirements, errored by using only the old Julian calendar date of her birth.


On June 24, 1745 at Londonderry, Agnes m. as his 1st wife, Samuel Fisher, and d. following childbirth Apr. 17, 1747 (g.s.). The child, dau. Nancy born the same day as her mother's death, survived to adulthood to marry and leave descendants.
