Joshua Fisher (1707 - January 31, 1783) was an American hatter, merchant, politician, and a self-taught surveyor. Born in Delaware, Fisher married Sarah Rowland in 1733 and the couple settled down in Lewes, Delaware. Risher and his wife moved to Philadelphia in 1746, where he opened a general store. Upon his move to Philadelphia, Fisher carried with him several letters of introduction from friends and neighbors in Delaware proclaiming him to be a quiet, peaceable neighbor and 'a worthy Honest Man'. While living in Delaware, Fisher served as the coroner of Sussex County and as the deputy-surveyor of Delaware. =
