Description
Papers of Charles Frederick Fisk, rancher in Corcoran, California, land developer, mainly in the Tulare Basin area of California, and mine owner in Calaveras County, California.
Background
Charles Frederick Fisk, born in 1885 to Frank Willis Fisk (b. 1857) and May P. Shearer of Murphys, California, was a rancher in Corcoran, California; a land developer, mainly in the Tulare Basin area of California; and a mine owner in Calaveras County, California. His grandparents, Charles Fisk (1814-1897) and Mary Ann Eaton (1818-1893), came to California from Maine around 1863. The couple settled first in Yolo County and then in Silver Mountain City in Alpine County, where Charles Fisk ran the Fisk Hotel and served on the school board. In 1869, the couple relocated to Murphys in Calaveras County. They had eleven children.
