Biography

William and Minnie were married on 12 Jun 1888 in Apollo, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania[1][2]

Research Notes

  • There is a Find-a-Grave memorial for William S. Fiscus, b. ca. 1866, and married to Mildred "Minnie" Shoemaker (her mother's maiden name was Cochran). They have a son, William Logan Fiscus. This appears to be the same family. His parents are given as John M. and Annie M. (Stiveson) Fiscus.[3]
  • There is an age discrepancy between the 1900 and 1920 census listings. In 1900, he gives his birth date as Mar 1864[4]; however, the 1920 listing shows his birth year as 1857[5]
  • His death record gives his place of birth as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rather than Apollo. It also gives his father's name as John William Fiscus, b. Pennsylvania. His mother's name is listed as "don't know." William was widowed at the time of his death in 1948, and he was living in Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia.[6][7]
