    ISAAC KISER, farmer; P.O. Fletcher. Peter and Catherine (Young) Kiser were both natives of Virginia, and immigrated to Ohio in 1806, and located where the village of Fletcher now is situated; they passed many days of the early part of the nineteenth century there, but in after years removed to Shelby Co., Ohio, where they both passed from the stage of life. John Kiser, the father of Isaac, was born in Virginia, in 1785, and came with his parents to Ohio, where he nobly assisted in clearing away the forest and opening up a farm, which only time and health were needed to complete; about 1809, he married Barbara Simmons, after which they began life in the pioneer time manner; he was in the Indian struggle of 1812, under Capt. Hilliard, and after his return settled down with his family; they ever after their marriage were residents of Brown Township until their decease. Their children were ten in number, one of whom, Isaac, was born November, 1810, and raised on the farm, which was cultivated with comparatively rude implements; school advantages in his boyhood days were very imperfect, therefore the education obtained was limited; he has, since his majority, through his straightforward business habits, been elected to, and held, some of the most important offices of the township, which he has filled with benefit to the community where he lived; he now resides in the west end of Fletcher on his farm, which is nicely located and well improved. In June, 1832, he married Sarah Luce, who was born in this county in June 1813, and departed this life August, 1866; they were parents of six children, of whom two died in infancy, and four are now living. In April, 1867, Isaac K. married for his second wife Mrs. Mary Cory, widow of Joseph Cory; one son has been born to them, viz., Harrion K. Kiser.
