I think I've untangled this.

1860 West Greenwich, Kent, RI
Wilson Fish, b. RI, 32, farmer
Dorcas, b. RI, 37
Benoni W., b. RI, 6
Lorenzo, b. RI, 4
Ida E., b. RI, 2
James, b. RI, 8/12ths
Celia Fish, b. RI, 73

1870 Warwick, Kent, RI
Wilson Fish, b. RI, 44, works farm
Dorcas, b. RI, 46
Benoni, b. RI, 16, works farm
Lorenzo, b. RI, 14, works cotton mill
James B., b. RI, 11, works cotton mill
Ida E., b. RI, 12, works cotton mill
George W, b. RI, 9
William H., b. RI, 6

Benoni did marry Ann Green first but I didn't find their marriage record online. Early vital records were originated and filed at the village/town/city Clerk's office.

I'd contact the Warwick Historical Society, to determine who has the records.

Clarinda Fish
Born: 8 Dec 1876, Scituate, Providence, RI
Father: Benoni W. Fish
Mother: Ann Green

Ann dies which is probably the record you found. She probably died in West Warwick. I'd do a Google search for the West Warwich Town Clerk.

Benoni marries Julia but I didn't find that marriage record.
