Biography[edit]

Fisk was born in Greenwich, Province of Massachusetts Bay and was self-educated.[1] He served in the Revolutionary War from 1779 to 1782. He was a member of the Massachusetts General Court in 1785.[2] Fisk was ordained as a Universalist minister, and preached occasionally. He married Priscilla West.[3]

Fisk moved to Barre, Vermont in 1798 where he worked as a farmer and minister. He studied law and was admitted to the bar; he began the practice of law in Barre.[4]

Fisk entered politics in Vermont as a member of the Vermont House of Representatives, serving from 1800 to 1805, 1809 to 1810 and in 1815.[5] He was judge of the Orange County, Vermont Court from 1802 to 1809 and in 1816.[6] He was selected as the member from Orange County to locate the capital in 1803. Fisk served as chairman of the committee that endeavored to get a settlement of the northern boundary with Canada in 1804.

In 1804 Fisk was elected as a Democratic-Republican candidate to the United States House of Representatives, serving from March 4, 1805 until March 3, 1809.[7] He ran unsuccessfully for reelection in 1808. In 1811 he was elected again to the House, and served from March 4, 1811 until March 3, 1815.[8] He was chairman of the Committee on Elections.

Fisk was appointed United States Judge for the Territory of Indiana in 1812 by President James Madison,[9] but declined the appointment. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in1814, and served as judge of the Supreme Court of Vermont from 1815 until 1816.[10]
