19011 Pony Express rider William Fisher? Wonderful occupational sixth plate
ruby glass ambrotype of a handsome young man holding a saddlebag. Matt
Cranford purchased this from a picker in Nebraska a number of years ago. The
picker swore it was Pony Express rider William Fisher: He purchased it from
an estate in Missouri, or Kansas. I can't remember which. They were supposed
ancestors of Billy Fisher. I have no other proof of said claim. The image of him
in the link below does bear resemblance. I placed it in the thermoplastic case.
