FISK, IRA (son of Hezekiah Fisk of Silver Creek and Mary Walker of Fredonia, N.Y.). Born Feb. 21, 1801, at Silver Creek, N.Y. Came to Utah 1861. Married Lucretia Trask Feb. 16, 1832 (daughter of Lazarus Trask and Ruby Moulton), who was born Feb. 25, 1808, died in Pennsylvania.

Ira Fisk was first married in New York to Minerva Sagers (1809-1849). In 1827 he met and married Minerva Sagers. This couple had one child. William Riley. Difficulties caused this couple to separate, probably in 1831, for in 1832 both Ira and Minerva remarried. Ira married Lucretia Trask. William Riley was very young at the time of the separation and did not even know Ira was his father. His mother remarried a man named Daniel Howard and William Riley grew up thinking Daniel was his father until Ira went to Utah to find him.
