I know this posting is 10 years old but maybe this will help. If you have further info to help me, I'd appreciate the information.
My line is thru the Fish family. George Mason Fish, son of Mason Fish, married Miss Rachel J Gray, of La Fayette County, Wisconsin, June 9, 1867. Her parents were Socrates and Anna Maria (Ten Eyck) Gray. Rachel was born Jan.18, 1846, in Boone County, New York. When Rachel was two and a half years old her parents removed to LaFayette County where she was reared and educated. Her mother died of Cholera in 1849 and her father died in Clay County, Iowa, 1881. After George and Rachel married, they came to Shelby County, Iowa. The Fish family---Mason Fish was one of the first settlers of Clay Township, Shelby County, Iowa. He was born in Cayuga County, New York, March 24, 1805, son of Isaac Fish, a native of New York, who was in the War of 1812. Isaac was the son of Nathan Fish who was in the war of the Revolution for 8 years. Nathan's father was born in Wales and came here at a young age.
It might have been the Fish connection that took the Ten Eyck/Gray family where they moved. I hope this helps.
