Children selected for inclusion (generally male) of William Roby Fiske and Hannah Martin all b. Williamstown, Orange, VT, were as follows:
"I commenced life on my own resolutions [when he was 13] much younger than you now are  without a father's care and protection. And all that I am I have made by myself and for myself. You have it in your power with a father's assistance to do vastly better than I have done with myself."
Son John gave David's birthplace as "unknown" in 1880 census and as "MA" in 1900 (when he was 84). Son David L. gave David's birthplace as "US" in 1880 census);767,768,769 m. Naomi Lewis, daughter of Dr. Joseph Lewis and Experience Burr, 1795 Norwich, Windsor, VT (The marriage record in the Norwich VR only shows _ Fisk married Naomi Lewis. The record appears to have been tampered with so that the first name might have been erased. It does not look like it simply faded over time);770,771,772 m. Abigail Sargeant, daughter of Jabez Sargeant and Persis Lord, 19 Jul 1804 Chester, Windsor, VT;773,774 d. 8 Jul 1829 at age 56;775 Inventory was taken 26 Mar 1830 (Kenton), Campbell, KY, This inventory was taken on 26 Mar 1830 in Campbell Co. before Kenton Co. was formed in 1840. The date would suggest that the decedent was David Fisk (father of John Flavel Fisk) who allegedly died unexpectedly in Mt. Vernon, OH in 1829.
The inventory, valued at $340, contains numerous items, but few to suggest the profession of a doctor or even cobbler:776
LITERACY: a bible, lot of old books, table and ink bottles.
VALUE: rifle, silver watch, wagon, yoke of oxen.
Possible medical use: pr. small scales, hackel, lot of bottles and vials (not much).
Bulk of estate was three bedrooms of furniture, barnyard implements and livestock.
This David was a husbandman, but perhaps overextended, because the estate was sold off the following day. The bidders are named, suggesting a much larger pool of Fisks in the area than had previously been supposed.
The clearest link to the known family is David L. Fisk, but there appears to be a seperate David [no L] Fisk as well.
Other Fisks: George, Susanna, William, Justan. Susan [same as Susannah?] and William Fisk were administrators.
Other names of interest: James and Russel [?] Barton, possibly of the Chester Bartons.
Mann, Hightower, Stephenson [namesake of the district?]
All of this suggests the Fisk settlement was large and its origins complex and very unresolved.
