Oscar Fisher (February 6, 1812 – May 7, 1882) was an American politician. Fisher, son of Olcott and Eunice (Royce) Fisher, was born in West Woodstock, Conn., February 6, 1812. He graduated from Yale College in 1836. After graduation, he took charge, for a few years, of Nichols Academy, in Dudley, Mass, where he had mainly fitted for college. While there he mained Jane Fay Bemis, niece and adopted daughter of Phineas Bemis, Esq, of Dudley, who died in Newark, N.J., March 31, 1849, while her husband was engaged in teaching there.
