This Ebenezer Fish was one of the 29 who escaped massacre at Fort Griswold, Sept. 6, 1791. He was living on Fort Hill at the time, and being sure of an alarm, took his flintlock and joined those in the Fort. He was carried away prisoner, but was exchanged in three months, still wearing the same clothes. His grandson recalls the horror with which he used to speak of the loathsome conditions. He moved to Ohio, where he died in 1827, age 70, at Brooklyn.
