For several years I have been researching the Fish family in an effort to determine the
lineage of Daniel Fish (b. 1763-died after 1830). I believe that I have finally found the
break through I've been seeking for so many years.
Daniel Fish was born on 26 Nov 1763 in Somers, Tolland County, CT; his parents were
Jonathan Fish and Dorothy Thomas. Jonathan's father was Benjamin Fish (b. 1694) and
is said to have been from Wales. Daniel married Sybil Smith in Suffield, Hartford County,
CT on 28 Sep 1786. In the 1800 census they are living in Norfolk, Litchfield County, CT;
in the 1810, 1820, & 1830 census they are living in Meredith, Delaware County, NY. I
have a 1819 deed from Suffield, Hartford County, CT that links this Daniel Fish to
Meredith, Delaware County, NY.
Daniel and Sybil Fish had three children that I know of: Daniel Jr., Betsy, and a son I
have been able to determine the name of. Daniel Jr. married Margaret Groat on 1 Sep 1808
in Kortright, Delaware County, NY; he died in 1853 in Hamden, Delaware County, NY.
Daniel's mother, Sybil Fish died 18 Feb 1842, Meredith; his sister Betsy died 18 Dec
1873 in Meredith, I believe she never married.
My lineage is:
Jonathan Fish - Dorothy Thomas
Daniel Fish - Sybil Smith
Daniel Fish Jr. - Margaret Groat
Charles C. Fish - Laura Ann Hotchkiss
Laura Minerva Fish - Robert Pierce
Addie Pierce - George Salton
Edith Minerva Salton - Ray DeLos Churchill
I will be happy to share details of my research with anyone who is researching this Fish
