The Grandmother & Grandfather's Story: Lewis and Mary Fisher, Loyalists in the American Revolution & New Brunswick Settlers

ByRob Fisher

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Lewis and Mary Fisher lived quietly in New Jersey before the American Revolution. Lewis enlisted in 1776 in the New Jersey Volunteers, a loyalist regiment, but was captured by the patriots. Held prisoner for two years in the Simsbury Copper Mines, he escaped only to see British fortunes collapse. Lewis and Mary fled New York City at war’s end, seeking refuge in Canada. Without provisions or shelter in the wilderness, they endured a bitter winter, but survived to help found the town of Fredericton in the new colony of New Brunswick. More than just a family history, this is a story of remembering, and how a family kept its history alive. At its heart is a mysterious manuscript, “The Grandmother’s Story,” that reveals fascinating details of family life, and the manuscript’s once-anonymous author. Through three generations, in peace and war, this is the story of a North American family.
