Fishburg

There is a road in Huber Heights, Ohio named Fishburg and like most roads I don't know the origin of the name. But while researching what cities exist within the 45459 zip code, I found a reference to a Ghost Town named Fishburg, which I assume is what the road is named after.  Fishburg developed around a toll gate on the State Route 202 and a post office called Fishburgh was established in 1858 and closed a year later, however, no records exist that pinpoints the exact location of Fishburg.  Kinda spooky.
