  • Notes 
    • John started a telegraph company in Baker, Oregon and started a state line from Halfway to Baker. When they moved to California his daughter, Mabel and her husband ran the dairy.

      Research Notes: The 1900 census indicates that Rose had 7 children, 6 living. Minerva and Edith are missing from the family in that census. This doesn't make sense.

      According to Mary Ann Garman: “In 1888 cousin John Bisher from Bruce Lake Ind. came and wanted John L. Bisher to go to Santa Barbara, Cal. John Bisher was founder of Bisher Truck and Transportion Co. of San Diego, Cal. John L. Bisher couldn’t go at the time but later to Grays Harbor, Wash. and then to Pendleton, Oregon where they build first creamery and cheese factory and first saw mill.”

      Mary Anna also recorded: “M. E. Bisher lived at 422 E. Howard (or Harvard) St., Glendale, California.” Difficult to make out the “M.” - might have been a cross out, or “Dell”.
