Sophia was a younger unmarried sister of Hannah Collin. Their grandparents, Felix and Barbara, emigrated from Switzerland in 1730, and settled in New Jersey, along the Delaware River. Their parents, Jacob Fisler and Sophia Klein, were children on board the same ship. Sophia Klein’s parents, so the story goes, were killed by the ship captain for their money. The Fislers then paid her fare, so she would not be sold as an indentured servant. Fourteen years later, Jacob Fisler & Sophia Klein married.
