Henry Francis Fisher (1805–1867), a notable German Texan, was born in Kassel, Hesse. In 1837 or early 1838 he came to Houston, Texas, where he was consul for the Hanseatic League (modern-day Germany). He became interested in the exploration and colonization of the San Saba, Texas area and in 1839 was acting treasurer of the San Saba Company, which was later reorganized as the San Saba Colonization Company. [1] He was a key party in the Fisher-Miller Land Grant.[1] He spoke German and additional languages Spanish and English when Texas came under Mexican and US rules
