Obituary

RUSSELL FISKE DEAD

Word has been received here of the death in Colorado, last Friday, of Russell Fiske, formerly a resident of this town. Mr. Fiske was born in Shaftsbury in 1825 and was the oldest son of the late Richard Fisk, who was for several years sheriff of Bennington County, and jailor of the Old Bennington Center jail.

The deceased is survived by a wife and two children. He also leaves three brothers; Rev. Richmond Fiske of Boston, George Fiske of Denver, and Jerry Fiske of Hoosick Falls. , and one sister, Mrs. Ball of Hoosick Falls.

Mr. Fiske was highly respected in this section and won success in the west. He was a builder and contractor by trade, and among the buildings which were constructed under his direction was the Adams Soap factory on County Street.

Mr. Fiske has many friends among the older residents, who are grieved to learn of his death.
