  • Notes 
    • It has been noted that several researchers have a different set of parents for Sarah Fiske. However, Sarah Fiske (Gale) is mentioned in her father Nathan's will as noted in "Massachusetts Pioneers" which is a descriptive list of pioneers of Massachusetts taken from colonial, town, church and other contemporary documents. It lists over 5000 persons who settled the colony and were instrumental in its growth. Including settlers from as far back as the Mayflower, researchers will find birth, occupation, marriage and death information along with a list of known descendants.

      From page 167 and 168 of Massachusetts Pioneers:
