Re: Looking for Fiske's Ct./NY 1700's/1800's
Posted by: Robert Birt Date: July 07, 2001 at 04:42:47
In Reply to: Looking for Fiske's Ct./NY 1700's/1800's by Gretchen Koelsch Barrows of 750

Gretchen, here is what I have for your Solomon. I show his wife was not a Mary Fisk but a Mary Harris. I did not have Jeanette's husband's first name (Thomas) though, so thank you. Most of this is from Pierce's Fisk and Fiske Families of 1896 so be aware that anything that seems odd is probably wrong or even outright false. Mr. Vail was absolutely correct in his ascertion that the genealogists of the 19th century made quite sure their customers got something for their money (i.e.; there is no documented evidence that there was ever a Lord Simon Fiske especially of Stadhaugh Manor).
I've got over 16,700 Fisk(e)s and their descendants is my family tree so if I can help again feel free to ask. Remember though anything gleened from a published genealogy including what I'm sending you now should never be taken as proof. What you have, like the letters and such, that's much more valuable because it comes from the individuals themselves.
Good luck,
Bob Birt
