Jonathan Fish married first Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph Sackett, Oct. 5, 1750. She was born June 25, 1729 and died April 9, 1778. He then married Elizabeth, daughter of Thos. Whitehead. She died Oct. 26, 1798. Together with the other two sons of his father, Jonathan inherited a third of his father's real estate in and about Newtown, which was quite extensive. Before the Revolution he moved to New York and became a merchant, perhaps under the firm name of Berrien and Fish, with offices near Burling Slip and John Berrien as a partner. This business must have been broken up by the war. In fact, Jonathan Fish died during the war on Dec. 26, 1779, only a few months after his second marriage."
