Catherine Fiske School for Girls, Keene N.H.

Does anyone know the parentage Catherine Fiske, the founder of the Catherine Fiske School for Girls? She founded it in 1814 in Keene, New Hampshire.

I have found what I believe is her birth record in Worcester Mass. She was born as Kata Fiske, 30 July 1784 to Luther and Azubah Fiske.

Unfortunately, the only Luther I know of, who married an Azuba, married Azubah Pierce but that wasn't until 1804 in Holden. Mass. A full twenty years after Catherine was born.

With Catherine being born as Kata Fiske, it lends itself to her being of Eastern Europian ancestry. I haven't found anything regarding her parents with the exception of it being said that they had moved to Vermont after her birth.
