He married Margaret Hall in Northampton Co., VA, April 16, 1765. Margaret was born September 28, 1735. Margaret was the daughter of Thomas Hall(Col.) and Elizabeth Scarburgh.

Upon Ismy's death, his estate was administered in Northampton Co., VA, November 14, 1780. (James H. Marshall, Wills & Admin. of Northampton Co., VA, p. 466) He chose his guardian in December, 1759, so he was age 14 or older, but under age 21.

Ismy Fisher and Margaret Hall had the following children:

child 133 i. Thomas Hall5 Fisher. He married Prissy(wife of Thomas Fisher). (ref: Whitelaw)

child 134 ii. Obediah Fisher.

Ismy Fisher had the following child:

child 135 iii. Maddox Fisher was born in Northampton Co., VA June, 1759. Maddox died March 31, 1834 in Accomack Co., VA, at 74 years of age. He married twice. He married Leah Corbin about 1780. Leah was born August 12, 1761. Leah was the daughter of Ralph Corbin and Rachel(wife of Ralph Corbin). Leah died before 1802. He married Leah Mears in Accomack Co., VA, January 15, 1802. John Justice was security on bond.

Leah died July 18, 1843 in Accomack Co., VA. Maddox is named as a local heir of Thomas Dolby and would, therefore, be a descendant of Thomas Dolby's sister, Susanna. Ismy Fisher's brother, John, had a son named Maddox; it appears he stayed in Kentucky. Ismy's brother, Thomas, did not name a son Maddox in his 1789 will. It is assumed that this Maddox Fisher was the son of Ismy by a marriage previous to Margaret Hall.

Maddox served in the Revolution. He stated on August 28, 1832 that he enlisted in a company of militia commanded by Capt. William Christian in January, 1777 and remained about two years and then went to Accomack County to live and was enrolled in a militia company commanded by Capt. William Justice January 1, 1779 and continued in said company until the end of the war. He gave his birth as June, 1759. (notes of M.K. Miles)
