Alice “Allie” Rosetha (Smith) Fisher was born November 21, 1854, in Chesaning, Michigan. On July 6, 1868, at the age of 13 years and 7 months, she married 22-year-old Civil War veteran, Joseph C. Fisher, in Chesaning, Michigan. [See “Excerpts from the Autobiography of Allie R. Fisher.”]
Sister Allie Fisher was gifted in the writing of music as well as her husband. She composed the music for several songs. After her husband defected, divorced her, and married another woman in 1887, she remained faithful and continued to be a part of the Trumpet Family in Grand Junction, Michigan. She held a proprietorship in the Gospel Trumpet Company for several years but sold it to Noah Byrum, brother of E. E. Byrum, in the mid 1890s.
Allie departed this life on May 17, 1927, aged 72, at the Old People’s Home in Anderson, Indiana, where Frankie Warner, D. S. Warner’s widow, also died the same year. Allie is buried in Mount Rest Cemetery, Saint Johns, Michigan.
