Surnames: FISKE, SMITH, ROBBINS, WHITMORE, LARABEE, ROBERTS
JAMES W. W. FISKE, listed birth place on death record and records of his children as Shrewsbury, MA. On death record his parents were listed as CHARLES FISKE and MARY WILSON. Cannot find a birth record for him or any sign of his parents. According to his census records both parents were born in MA. I am hoping that some of the names he chose for his children might ring a bell for FISKE researchers. They do not seem to appear in his spouse's ancestry.
Here is a one generation report on his family.
