Few homes in western New York have remained in the same family for two centuries. Of those, fewer still are the homes of descendants with the original surname, much less located in a community named for a family member. Seven generations of Fishers have lived in the Fisher Homestead in Fishers, New York, now part of suburban Rochester, since the early nineteenth century. Home through the years to more than eighty persons and birthplace of at least seventeen, the homestead has had its brushes with history and its share of sudden deaths, financial hardships and eccentric second wives. Deep resources of hope and endurance have in turn yielded triumph and celebration, bringing this pioneer family a sense of unity and closeness that continues into a new century.
The concisely written, indexed text is accompanied by 72 illustrations. They include maps and photos of the community as well as of the homestead and of 46 of its residents. A four-page appendix includes genealogical information on seven generations of family members.
