Hi Joyce,

I've located another example of A. J. Fisher, Towanda, PA. 

This is Barak B. Hartshorn, b. 11 Feb 1836 and d. 15 May 1903.  Barak is buried in the Ulster Cemetery, Ulster, PA.  He served as a Private, Co. H, 104th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War and his medal can be seen in this photo.

This photo could also be placed on your Civil War Veterans page, if you are so inclined.
