Off a country road in Wauconda, Illinois, there is a small, old cemetery dedicated to a pioneer family that had many die with a few others that are buried there as well. The Fisher family had so many children that died young. The tombstone sits there between two bushes, next to a farm.
The tragedy of this pioneer family also intrigues me and is something I am still investigating and trying to determine why so many died in this family. The Dowell Family and Wilford Drover all died on April 06, 1916. What happened to them? This cemetery is maintained by the Wauconda Township.
