That Minnie Fisher may or may not be the same Minnie Fisher who married Charles Frederick Koehler as listed in a genealogy of the Fisher Family at Ancestry.com where the compiler may have assumed that they were the same person. The information is
close, but contains some pertinent differences in that her birth month in the second census is February, not April; she is listed twice in the 1900 census; in the listing with her birth family, her father is noted as born NJ and mother as born OH; in
the second listing the birth places are reversed. She could be the same person with the informant at the school not having the correct information or giving it incorrectly.
