Biography

  • Melchior Fischer was born in 1725 in Heilbron, W├╝rttemberg, Germany and was in Lancaster, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania by 1750. In 1753 he married Anna Barbara Heilburn (1726-1791), widow of Matthais Reis, and moved with her to York, York County, Pennsylvania shortly thereafter. They moved to North Carolina about 1774, and lived in the Friedberg community.
  • Melchior died in 1797 (cemetery record) or 1798 (Moravian Archives card file); both he and Anna Barbara are buried at Friedberg Moravian Church. Children of Melchior Fischer and Anna Barbara Heilburn are:
  1. Anna Barbara Fischer (1754-1844) married Johannes Volz (1755-1821)
