Albert Fish (May 19, 1870 Washington DC - January 16, 1936 Sing Sing Prison)
He was born in Washington DC, to Randall Fish (1795-1875) of Kennebec Co, Maine, and his wife Ellen (1838-) of Ireland. His father Randall, in the 1870 census was a Manufacturer of Fertilizer. Randall was the son of Bolton Fish who
died 25 JUL 1814 in Battle of Lundy's Lane, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
At his birth, Hamilton as he was called was the youngest of four children: Walter, Annie, and Edwin being his older siblings.

Randall Fish died early in Hamilton's life, in 1875 in Washington DC, and his mother was allegedly unable to care for Hamilton for a few years and put him in an orphanage, later taking him back out. That is an interesting tale because Randall Fish was at one time quite wealthy. More research needs to be done on this part of his story. (Will Johnson)
