  • Marriage (1): Samuel Fisher in 1887 1 2

She is likely the birth registered in Birmingham, England in early 1864 as Anna Maria Overton to father William James Overton. In the 1871 English Census, she is listed as Anna Maria Overton, age 7, in the household of William James and Ann Overton in Birmingham, Warwickshire, England. She names one of her children William James Fisher.

According to this compiler's grandmother, Florence Wiltbank, she was raised in England and came to this country. Her Wilmington (DE) newspaper obituary (date unknown, probably 1952) states she came here when she was 18 years old and that she lived first in Chestertown, MD (likely where she met Samuel Fisher, her husband) then moved to Wilmington where she resided most of her life. She was 88 when she died. 1910 Census states she came to America in 1874 but 1920 and 1930 censuses claim the year as 1884 and 1883, respectively (the latter two would better fit with the obituary statement saying she came when she was age 18, and the 1910 census taker probably meant 1884 instead of 1874). She is probably the Annie Overton who came to Baltimore from England on the Ship "Hanoverian" that arrived there on May 9 1884. That record indicates that she came with Rose Overton, age 21. We know that Annie had a sister named Rosanna.

Her death certificate indicates she died on Apr 6 1952 at 930 East 17th Street in Wilmington. Her father was William "Oneston" (sic, Overton - typographical error) and her mother's maiden name was Gee and that she was born in England.

  

Was 88 years old.


Anna married Samuel Fisher, son of Samuel Fisher and Elizabeth Biscoe, in 1887.1 2 (Samuel Fisher was born on 04 Oct 1849 in Queen Annes Co., MD,9 10 11 12 13 14 15 died on 14 Dec 1923 in Wilmington, New Castle Co., DE 8 16 17 and was buried on 17 Dec 1923 in Silverbrook Cemetery, Wilmington, New Castle Co., DE.)
