Another direct ancestor here, thanks for the corrections Carol.
It is highly unlikely that Fiske-56 would have fathered Fiske-114 at age 9. I have checked my records and there are date discrepancies for Fiske-56 anywhere from 1572 to 1584 to unknown. I am changing Fiske-56 birthdate to 1580 based on the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 1847-2011, as well as North Am Family Histories 1500-2000. Fiske-56's grandfather, Robert, is my 10th GGF. Carol Baldwin (Baldwin-3428)
