Does anyone know the parentage Catherine Fiske, the founder of the Catherine Fiske School for Girls? She founded it in 1814 in Keene, New Hampshire.
I have found what I believe is her birth record in Worcester Mass. She was born as Kata Fiske, 30 July 1784 to Luther and Azubah Fiske.
Unfortunately, the only Luther I know of, who married an Azuba, married Azubah Pierce but that wasn't until 1804 in Holden. Mass. A full twenty years after Catherine was born.
With Catherine being born as Kata Fiske, it lends itself to her being of Eastern Europian ancestry. I haven't found anything regarding her parents with the exception of it being said that they had moved to Vermont after her birth.
