Pueblo County, Colorado
CHARLES T. FISHER
Contributed by Karen Mitchell.
This gentleman is a son of the Hon. Lewis Fisher, of Massachusetts, and is the brother and partner of Albert T., whose history is herein published. He was born at West Medway, Norfolk County, Mass., on the 16th of February, 1852. He attended the Medway High School till he was twenty, working on his father's farm when school was not in session. June 12, 1875, he and Miss Ellen C. Bagley entered into a contract of marriage at Sharon, and September 11, 1876, they started for Colorado. After a journey of four days and nights, with an infant son to care for—a trial when traveling, little understood by them till their experience—they stopped at South Pueblo on the 16th, and on the following October moved out of the city on a ranch, returning in the spring in time to begin business early in the year, when he and his brother formed a partnership and commenced retailing coal. Their business has made them known to all classes, and their straight-forward dealing has procured them the good will of all. Their business has enlarged till it is the largest coal and freight transfer trade in the city. On the mesa, a fine building, in front of which is a pretty lawn bordered by a row of shade trees, and standing in plain view of the city, is pointed out to inquirers as his residence. It is a choice site, and a mark of the gentleman's noted judgment in selection.
