      Biography of Oliver Williams Fisher (from American Lumberman magazine)
      Source: American Lumberman, "The Personal History and Public and Business Achievements of One Hundred Eminent Lumbermen of the United States", Second Series, American Lumberman, Chicago, 1905-1906.

      Mr. Fisher was born in Scioto County, Ohio, September 2, 1842, his parents being Peter and Lucretia Fisher. He entered school at the tender age of four years and his scholastic training ended at the age of eight. Soon thereafter he went to work in a sawmill which cut about three hundred feet of lumber a day an old fashioned portable mill at 'a place called Pine Creek, in Scioto County. In 1854 he was apprenticed to Uriah Nurse to learn the trade of a miller, and remained with him until 1857. The next three years he worked at Springville, Kentucky, and for a short time he was employed in the circular sawmill of A. McManaway, in the Scioto Valley, Ohio, near Portsmouth.
