  7. Source: #S147 Page: Page 13 Quality or Certainty of Data: 2 Data: Text: "The eight sons of Wilhelm Fischer all served in the Continental Army during the Revolution. As can be expected, some served various enlistments at various times, according to the emergency; but it is worthy of note that at one time six of these sons served in the same company, as is evidenced by a return of Captain Sebastian Miller's Company of Berks County Militia under Colonel Joseph Hiester on May 31, 1781, in which appear the names of John, Henry, Fridrich, Georg, Pitter, and Michael Fisher (Pa. Arch, 5th Series, vol. Vl, pg. 211), while Frantz Fisher is noted in a regiment of the Continental Line and Philip Fisher in the German Regiment. The Revolutionary War tablet on the wall of Hain's Church mentions Frederic, Michael, Peter, Srl, Peter, Jr., and Philip Fisher."
