I did find this:
Birth, N.F.L.  Conception Bay- North Region
Newspaper Records
Sept. 16, 1857 - Birth - Mrs. J. Fisher, a Son Aug. 29.
 This could be the Ronald Fisher I was looking for.

Still trying to find the place of birth for Margaret Fisher b. 1859.

Yes, that was on the one page...guess I'd better go see what was on the other, as i cannot remember...Will post it here....don't always have time to retranscribe info, and if you put info on word for word it can be considered copyright infringement... ;)  ( There was also something on a " J.K. Fisher." same page)


Ah, yes, just that John R. was witness at a wedding, and there were other
Fisher mentions on the page...   a Henrietta...a Herman G.
and John's  death notice: Sept.  21st, 1936 John R. FISHER  Bonavista age 71
