My ancestress, Mrs. Emelia 'Milly" Fisher Sossaman (widow of John Sossaman), Mrs. Emilia 'Milly' Fisher Miller (my line), wife of John 'Henry' Miller of Cabarrus Co., N.C., was the daughter of SAR/DAR Patriot Capt. Frederick Fisher, Jr., by first wife, I think her name was Sybilla (or that may be Capt. Fisher's mother, I forget which?); most DAR's, SAR's descend Capt. Fisher's second wife, Ann McBride. My hunch is Barbara Fisher also descends Capt. Fisher?

There was a Sossaman silversmith in circa 1805 Ft St Stephens, Alabama (he lived in a tent), where my ancestor Thomas Malone, Sr., was U.S. Land Office agent, magistrate, and Asst. Indian Agent. Thomas wed Mary S.---possibly a Sossamon? My ancestor, Mobile War of 1812, 3rd U.S. Infantry, Col. Gilbert Christian Russell, Sr., is buried Magnolia Cemetery, Mobile, next to a Sossamon; but I think they are not related? Jim Miller, Southport, N.C.
