Former U.S. Congressman Hamilton Fish Sr., a feisty New York politician whom Franklin D. Roosevelt derided as part of the conservative trio of "Martin, Barton and Fish," has died at his home here of heart failure. He was 102. Fish, who died Friday, was a member of a long and continuing line of American statesmen-aristocrats and a descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch governor of New York. Fish's great-grandfather was Col. Nicholas Fish, an aide to Gen. George Washington.
