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.


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.

Town Marriage Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection), transcription of above:

Name: Col. Fisk
[Col. Fiske, Ffiske]
Marriage Date: 18 Jan 1835
Marriage Location: Windham
Spouse: Lucy Harvey

1840 Census, Windham, Windham Co., CT, p. 276:

Colonel Fisk [6 in household; presumed identifications]
--- 1 male under 5 [b. 1835-1840] = Oliver
--- 2 males 5-10 [b. 1830-1835] = ? & ?
--- 1 male 30-40 [b. 1800-1810] = Colonel
--- 1 female under 5 [b. 1835-1840] = Lydia
--- 1 female 30-40 [b. 1800-1810] = Lucy

1850 Census, Windham, Windham Co., CT, p. 467A, no Dwelling or Family numbers given, enumerated 20 Oct 1850 with a number of other individuals all designated as "paupers" [possibly in Windham County poor house?]:

Colonel Fisk, 45, Farmer, Conn [dittoed from above]
--- Oliver, 14, RI
--- Lydia, 11, RI [dittoed]
--- Eliza N, 9, RI [dittoed]

All POBs suspect and probably incorrect.
