Fisk/e families 1700's US NC/SC
Posted by: Jerry W. Fisk (ID *****5117) Date: April 25, 2007 at 07:28:10

Does anyone out there have anything on the below family line as to how they got to NC/SC?

They were Farmers and or farm loborers that migrated from NC/SC to Alabama then to Texas. My father picked cotton in Alabama, then produce, to inclide sharecropping, in east Texas, and labor camps in south Texas. (I went to school in a labor camp in south Texas, in the 40's)

Did they come from England to Ma to NC/SC? or Direct to NC/SC from England under somesort of land grant to intice settlement in that area.

I know the US offered land and bounty to (Irish (others?) immigrants who settled in SC but I cannot find any of my family line.


My family line ascends from me as follows:

Jerry W. Fisk - me
Lonnie Alfonzo Fisk - father, b. 1912, US census and birth certificate
Joesph (Joe A.) Fisk - grandfather, b. 1881 US census and fathers birth certificate
Dekalb Lipscomb Fisk - G grandfather, b. 1852, US census
Goodwin Fisk - GG grandfather, b. 1809, US census
Benjamin Fisk - GGG grandfather, b. Benjamin Fisk, Abt. 1779, US census
Joseph Jr. Fisk - GGGG grandfather, Joseph Jr. Fisk b. Abt. 1757, US 1790 Census, Wake county, North Carolina. This is only a guess.


Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
