Re: EUGENE FISH s/o JOSEPH POISSON
Hi Sharee, our records show my husband's great grandfather was Edwin Fish, b. 26 Sep 1847, in Beccles, Suffolk, England. He died 13 Sep 1919 in Troutdale (across from Portland), Multnomah, Oregon. His parents were Frederick Fish and Ann Folgate. Frederick died in England, 1897; Ann died in UT, 1906. I don't know if she remarried, but I do not have a Eugene as a child in her family with Frederick: Emma (1842), Mary Ann (1843), Ellen (1845), our Edwin (1847), Susan Kate (1852), Frederick Amos (1864). However our Edwin Fish has a grandson Vivian Eugene Fish (b 19 Sep 1910, UT and d. 1985). So Eugene may be a family name for us.
I have been looking for the burial record for our Edwin Fish, in Oregon, and see that there are several (unrelated?) Fish families in the Portland area. I have not heard ofthe parents you mention for your Eugene Fish.
