|Bob Birt||Ebenezer Fiske|
William, I am a direct descendant of Ebenezer's through his son Benjamin and daughter in law Rebeckah Howe. Apparently, during the Battle of Lexington and Concord the family, which was awoken in the wee hours of April 19th by Paul Revere (he was captured two houses later) fled into the woods during the fighting. When they returned Rebeckah held the Patriot Hayward of Acton (whom had exchanged lethal musket shots with a British regular at the well on their property), as he died. This event was immortalized in a painting by James Frothingham and commissioned by her son Benjamin Howe Fiske, bet 1830 to 1850. I mention this because I am curious if anyone knows the current whereabouts of the painting. I personally have only ever seen a photo copy of photograph of the painting. If you or anyone else is interested, my line is as follows, (Ebenezer, Benjamin, Benjamin Howe, Benjamin Howe, Benjamin Howe, Benjamin Howe, Benjamin Howe, Helen Lucy Fiske, Robert A. Birt [me])

Hi...I have a stone for Benjamin Fiske (March 28, 1730 - February 01, 1785)...was wondering if his wife Abigail (Maynard) Fiske...was buried close to Benjamin's stone? I have no dates for her.

Hello, could you let me know where I can find the Fiske Family plot where Lieut. David Fiske, David Fiske III and possible Dr. Robert Fiske and Joseph Fiske ( born 1726, died Jan 8th 1808 with his wife Hephziba ) I'm havign a hard time finding where they are buried? He is the parents of Dr. Joseph Fiske ( surgeon during the Rev war )
I know where his grave is, so if they are close to his grave.. that'd be a big help. THanks
