Hmmm, neither of those John Fiskes was reportedly born in 1695.
Supposedly, the John Fiske who married Martha Hovey was born Dec. 10, 1699 in Groton, Massachusetts and is the son of James and Tabitha. His family never left Massachusetts. (Groton has his birth indexed under Fesk, "s. of James and Tabitha" not under Fiske but there were no other Fesks in Groton)

The other John you mentioned was reportedly born in 1693 and was known as Capt. John Fiske. He married a Hannah Unknown and a Sarah Unknown and raised his family in Haddam, Connecticut.

Hope this helped,
Bob Birt
