John Fisk and later William Goodhue, married a woman named Remembrance. Typically her surname is not mentioned in the records. When Fisk died his widow, Remember Fisk, presented an inventory. At the time, Charles Gott, (son of Charles Gott), age 45, testified that he had heard Ens. John Fiske tell Lt. Whipple, father of his future daughter in law, that he would give certain land to his son Samuel. On this slight piece of evidence an assumption that Remember Fiske was the sister of Charles Gott was built.

To me this only indicates that Gott was acquainted with Whipple and/or Fiske, which they would have been, living in a small community.

Anderson in his article on William Goodhue gives no surname to his wife Remember.

Charles Gott Sr did not mention a Remember in his will (although Remember was still alive). Anderson does not name a daughter Remember to Gott

Torrey's New England marriages lists "FISK, John (-1683) & Remember [GOTT] (-1702), dau Charles, m/2 William GOODHUE 1689?; 10 Dec 1651." The brackets around [Gott] indicate that Torrey had a reliable source but no proof was presented.

There is fairly complete explanation on https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Gott-458.

Suggested actions.

  • Disconnect Remember the wife of Fisk and Goodhue from parents "Gott" and change her LNAB to Unknown.
  • The other profile for Remember Gott, (I would love to eliminate but), should be disconnected from Charles but left to prevent recreation
