Notes for Esta “Estie” S. Fisk
Esta’s maiden name appears as Fiske in all the birth records for their children, but as Fisk in all of the censuses. Possibly just a difference in preferred spelling between the county clerk who recorded the births, and the census takers, since the spelling of names was often left up to whoever was writing them down.
