My ggg-grandmother Beulah Weinhart's maiden name was Fish. She was born in Pennsylvania. I have been able to trace the Fish line through her grandfather and probably her g-grandfather. There are several researchers working on her g-grandfather John Fish. Though the smoking gun has not been found yet this John Fish is most likely the correct John Fish. My gg-grandfather Lorenzo was Beulah's son. He owned his own business, lived to be 104, and was the mayor of Ankeny, Iowa twice. I have to think that he was a fairly intelligent person. In the 1910 census there is a category for where the individual's parents were born. Lorenzo indicated his father was from Germany which was correct. For his mother he put down Pennyslvania but along side it he wrote Germany. Does this mean the Fish Family was originally from Germany or was this just a mental mistake on Lorenzo's part? I may never know. I do know that both Beulah's grandfather Fish and probably g-grandfather Fish were born in the United States. Another possiblity is that the Germany is referring to the home country of Beulah's mother's parents. Their name was Kettle. Very little is known about them.
