Second Generation


5. Johan Hendrick Fischer was born in 1831 in Borne, Overijssel Province, Netherlands.2 He was a stockbroker which probably means he worked in the area of finance. He died in Groenlo, Gelderland Province, Netherlands.3 What is known about Johan Hendrick comes from the Netherlands Civil Registry via the WEB at Genlias.NL. This information comes from their marriage and death records. Family legend is that he died in the Netherlands at an early age prior to the emigration of family members to America. However the Genlias Registry record shows him listed as the father of Arnoldus born 1869 which is 14 years before GJH Fischer arriving in Holland Nebraska. He and Hendrika are listed as the father and mother in the 1897 marriage record for Arnoldus but it is possible he was not alive at that date.
