Notes: I have put in some pictures of FISH men whose relationship I do not
know. I "assume" that Seneca (with wife Polly) is a brother of Lewis
B. My mother spoke of Uncle Seneky and Aunt Polliky, as she called
them when she was a child. "Uncle Elias" may have been "Eliphaz", who
was known to be a brother of Lewis B. "Aunt Ann" and "Uncle Allen"
GIFFORD ?? could have been a sister of Lewis B. These pictures are in
the FISH photo album.

Lewis B. fathered 15 children, and was a carpenter all his life. All
the children were born in Independence, Allegany, NY except Maria, born in
Canandaigua, NY.

In the 1850 Alle. Co Census, one daughter is listed as Mariah, age 5,
and as Annett in the 1865 Alle Co census. The name of one child is
missing. Dates are from a family record kept by Minerva.
Lewis B. enlisted in the Civil War, having lied about his age (he was
too old to serve legally) but he did not serve on active duty.
However, he is buried in a grave marked with a Civil War marker.
Francis Marion and Ransom were also enlisted men in that war.
Some records are from the 1895 Allegany Co. Centennial History.
Others are from family records.

His application for pension states that he was in Co. G, 52nd Reg. NY State Volunteers. He did not know, at that time, the date of his enrollment, but was honorably discharged from the Harwood hospital near Washington, DC in the spring of 1865. He had lost his discharge certificate.

He signed the papers with an "x", so apparently was illiterate. Copy of his discharge papers are in the top drawer of my translucent file cabinet.

Elias Fish reported in the 1860 (or 1870) census that his mother was born in RI
