The following unidentified newspaper article was in a collection owned by Lowell Town Historian Richard Schmal:
George Fisher was born in Prussia, Germany, September 5, 1851, and passed away suddenly at Mercy Hospital, Gary, Saturday, October 15, 1921, at the age of seventy years, one month and ten days, his death following a severe attack of gastro enteritis. His advanced age and previous activities during these many years would not withstand this illness.
Mr. Fisher came to America in 1872 and received his citizenship papers in 1876. The greater part of his life was spent in and near Lowell, until about twelve years ago he with his family moved to Tolleston, where he resided until about three years ago.
On March 28, 1880, he married Adelia Minervia Fuller, who preceded him in death in January 1919. Four children were born to them, three of whom survive, Charles D. of Chicago, Mrs. W.G. Dickinson and Arthur M., of Gary, a daughter, Grace, having died about six years ago.
Mr. Fisher was a member of the Lutheran church of Tolleston and the funeral services were in charge of his pastor, Rev. August Rump, at the home of his son Arthur M. Fisher at Gary on Tuesday, October 18. A male quartette consisting of A.B. Dickson, Frank Downes, Tom Polk and E.H. Holliday, furnished beautiful and appropriate music, after which the remains were taken to Lowell by automobile and interment was made in the Lowell cemetery. Mrs. Grace McCarty and Mrs. Forrest Greisel furnished appropriate music at the grave.
Many friends mourn the departure of the life of this good man and sincerely sympathize with the bereaved ones.
