In Reply to: Re: EUNICE FISKE M JOHN KNIGHT --LIVED VERMONT by Sally Towers of 750

Eunice Fisk of Waterbury Center, VT is the sister of John and Benjamin Fisk of the same place.

Benjamin was born in 1787 in Shapleigh, ME. His parents were listed as Joseph & Sarah (Sally) (......) Fisk.

No Birthplace, or D.O.B. has been found for my Ancestor; John. However, the relationship between Benjamin and John is obvious in Waterbury Records.

There was also a sister named Susannah/Susan. She is listed to the same parents. She m. Peter Stone; at Highgate, VT.

Although no record for a son named Joseph has been found, one can assume that there was a Joseph Jr; since one of the same was also in Waterbury prior to moving to NY. This Joseph m. Roxanna Poland of ME.

Waterbury Records show Joseph Fisk(SR) as owing a debt he refused to pay. When a warrant for his arrest was issued, he fled to Canada (Stanbridge, QE) to avoid payment. He only returned to the US once (as far as anyone knows), and this was to turn his 31-acres of property in Waterbury Center, VT over to his son; Benjamin.

Hope this helps with your search. Should you ever find the family, I would love to know what you find, for though I have found several Fisk Cousins during my search, I cannot find the elusive, Joseph and Sarah.
