Most of this Family History is of Galen's son Lewis Sherban.
Lewis Sherban Fiske
"Lewis Fisk and brother George Franklin came from Rockland, Maine about 1854 and eventually settled in Pleasant Hill, MO. where they operated a butcher shop.
Lewis entered service during the war of Rebellion (Civil War) the 31st of July 1862, at the age of 23, as private of company K of the 9th Regiment of the US Calvary. He furnished his own horse and horse equipment.
While on scout duty in June of 1864 his horse was shot out from under him. He crawled and hid in a hollow log. He was discovered after an absence of 3 weeks with a broken right foot and sore eyes. He was promoted to sergeant and returned to duty. Due to complications of the foot he was honorably discharged the 24th of June 1865. He was awarded a medal for bravery under fire.
Grandpas feet never healed properly, he limped the rest of his life. During a lightning storm, Grandpa was sitting with his foot
propped on a wood stove. Lightning struck and knocked Grandpa off his chair. This may have contributed to his death a few days later.
