Death: Sep. 4, 1827

son of Captain John Fish

Ebenezer served in the defense of Fort Griswold, 1781 and was taken prisoner, died in Ohio where he moved in 1823

He was one of about 30 that was taken prisoner and was held a prisoner for about three months on the English ship Jersey when he was exchanged still wearing the same clothes that he wore when captured.

He was living on Fort Hill at the time of the battle of Fort Griswold and on hearing the alarm of the minute guns he took his flintlock gun and joined the men in the fort.

Ebenezer enlisted for six months in the war of 1812 and came out with honors. His brother Moses Fish was afterwards drafted and being in poor health Ebenezer went as substitute in his place and served during the war.
