I had done some searches for you and come up with nothing. There is not a lot of information to go on.

Information on your mothers and grand mother maiden name, also birth dates for your grand father and location would help.

I assume you are looking for Edward Louis Fisher who married Rebecca Mcgaughey.

Do you have an approx date and place for thier wedding ?

I found this Registration for WW1. On the Draft he is down as single. How certain are you that he married in 1912/1914.
