Fishbourne was active in NYC in 1836 and New Orleans in 1838-50. In both cities he was a partner of Wm Green. Their company specialized in lithographic printing of maps, circulars, and other commercial work. Joining the Gold Rush to California, he was active in San Francisco until at least 1863. He was also employed as a draftsman by the U.S. Surveyor General from 1858-60.
