      In Sutton Cemetery, there are Bisher Children, next to Albert and Angeline. There are no markers and the site is fenced in. In a visit to the graves in Oct of 2003, the stone is legible for Albert and Angeline. But the graves for the children and the fence are gone.

      From the Winamac Democrat Journal, 17 Feb 1899 page 3 column 5
      LOST HIS GIRL
      and the other fellow got a wife- miss-taken dreams of bliss

      A big sensation comes from Royal Center, in which figures a trio of parties well known in Van Buren township, this county, wherein two suitors for a fair young lady played their hands and the old folks' favorite easily won. The story goes that Fannie A. Bisher, whose home is with her parents about two and a half miles west of Royal Center, had two lovers. One was John Engle of Van Buren, said to be her favorite, and the other, Jas. B. Jester of that locality, the favorite of the girl's parents. Monday Miss Bisher was at home, having returned from near Star City. Engle is said to have driven to the Bisher mansion in his buggy and induced her to enter the vehicle. Then, the story continues, he drove off with her to her Uncle's. When she arrived ther she became alarmed over previous threats that had been made by Bisher and begged to return. To Mr. Engle's offer to return with her she objected, saying that her father would kill both of them if he did. She was then taken back home by her uncle, wohe name is Worden. Her father, James Bisher(*see note) , then went to the capital of Boone and had Engle arrested for abduction, while Engle, who was also there, wanted the old man put under bonds to keep the peace. Both cases were dismissed and Engle pleaded guilty to a charge of assault and battery before Justice Fry and was assessed $5.00 and costs. The trouble ended Tuesday with a marriage licence issued to James B. Jester, who won out in the fight for a girl by probably sitting still and sawing wood. Melville Gill also had a hand in the mix-up as Mr. Engle's friend. Mr. Bisher went to Logansport to get the license and the couple is doubtless ere this safely landed in the state of matrimony. May they have peace hereafter.

      *note from Lori, I don't know where the notion that James Bisher is her father came from. I have several sources that state Albert was her father.

      I have found nothing in death records in Pulaski Co. for either Albert or Angeline. Nor White Co. Maybe Benton Co. since Fannie lived there?

      ------

      According to Teresa Bishir Barrier, they lived 2 1/2 mile's West of Royal Center Indiana I
      believe that would be Cass Co.They left there at some point and moved to
      Oxford,Indiana in Benton Co. After death they returned to Pulaski Co. to
      be buried in the Sutton cemetery. There is one more child they called Harry he died at a very
      young age 9 or 10 maybe.
