There are hundreds of trees on RWWC
that have him, if he's the one who died in 1687.
The number of trees goes down to 80 if you check all three boxes:
_ Has Descendants
_ Has Notes
_ Has Sources
Here is a sample of what we call a "Descendancy" list. The numbers 7, 8, 9 and 10 are generations. The "+" are spouses. The whole list would not fit here. I don't know how accurate this is, but if it is only 80%, Thomas has hundreds of living descendants. Note some things,
1) There are query boards devoted to the Fish surname and to Rhode Island.
2) On average, 1/2 of his children, 3/4 of his grandchildren, 7/8ths of his great grandchildren, etc - the women - would have borne children not named Fish.

actually, Rhode Island IS the two a state AND an Island, the international e book encyclopedia says "Narragansett Bay quite much cuts Rhode Island in 2. The bay extends 28 miles (40 5 kilometers) inland from southern Rhode Island. The state has 36 islands, optimal of that are interior the bay. Aquidneck, the main important important island, replace into formally named Rhode Island in 1644. cities on the mainland have been noted as windfall Plantations. for this reason, Rhode Island's respected call is 'State of Rhode Island and windfall Plantations/. for this reason, the smallest state has the longest respected call."

Sure could be. He had 6 children who had children (one named Preserved Fish) and so on for the next 3 and a half centuries. No doubt he has thousands of descendants, with many different surnames, throughout the US, and the majority have no idea Thomas was an ancestor. There are over a thousand trees on ancestry.com for him. Are you looking for a particular descendant?
