Mary Fish Wisconsin and possibly Wash. State
Posted by: Melissa Barth (ID *****3132) Date: August 17, 2002 at 13:28:56

I am looking for any information on my great grandmother, Mary (H.?) Fish who lived in Pepin County, WI, born about 1861 and died sometime between 1920 and 1930, either in Wisconsin or Washington State.

She was married to Charles or Chester Cowles and had at least one child, my maternal grandmother, Nellie Cowles Braker, b. 5/25/1886, d. 4/12/1985. Mary Fish also had a sister, Madge who was married to a Mr. Stoops in Wisconsin and who was born about 1867.

On the 1920 Federal Census, Mary and Madge Fish listed both their parents as having been born in New York.

If anyone can give me some help, I would be very grateful.
