George Fisher’s father was a Quaker who founded the borough of Middletown in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, in 1755. Located on the east bank of the Susquehanna River, the settlement lay nine miles below Harrisburg. Fisher passed the bar in 1787 and practiced law there until he retired to Pineford Farm, in Middletown. He died at the age of eighty-seven, and is buried in Harrisburg.
