Just FYI: Colonel Fisk married Lucy Harvey. Censuses indicate they may have had least three children, By 1850, Lucy was either deceased or elsewise out of the picture.

Sources:

Windham Vital Records from "Barbour Collection" of Connecticut Records, Fisk, Fiske, Ffiske, p. 124:

--- Col. m. Lucy HARVEY, Jan. 18, 1835, by James Litchfield, J. P., Vol. 3, p. 171.
__________

Note: Since Col. is abbreviated, Barbour obviously thought this was a military designation, not a given name. Without seeing original records, what the Windham Town Clerk actually wrote unknown.
