Joel Fisk, a Congregational clergyman, who died 1856, aged 60, and who, with his wife, Clarinda Chapman, who died 1878, aged 78, is buried in the Ewing church-yard; Alexander, who, at the age of 23, promptly responded to the call of his country, and was one of those brave men of the Fourteenth New Jersey Volunteers, Lieut. Col. Caldwell Hall commanding, who laid down their lives in the desperate fight at Monocacy Bridge, against overwhelming numbers; and Mary. His second wife was Jane Rice, of Trenton. His third, Mary, daughter of Daniel Cook. His fourth, Clementine Davis, of Columbia, Pa."
