Letter: The difficulty of Field identification
Comments re article 106259 Letter Calling Mike Watson photo ID needed
By Mike Watson
Greetings to Betty Ann Wells! I cannot confirm the photograph is that of Dr. Elijah Creel Field. I have never been able to identify any of the Field line in a photo of any type, except for a few of the progeny in Texas in later years. Dr. Elijah was a practicing physician, along with his brother Dr. Samuel Brents Field, in Adair and surrounding counties for many years.
I would be interested in learning more about his untimely demise, only knowing he disappeared from this place shortly after the War. His siblings lived here a few more years before dying of natural causes.
My ancestor, his brother, was William Buford Field, who lived much of his adult life in the Glensfork-Powell's Creek area, having married Sarah "Sally" Powell. They are both buried in the old Powell Cemetery off highway 900. We believe the father and mother, John Field and Martisha Stapp Field, are also buried here in graves marked with field stones.
It is noted, however, that the bags under the eyes of the man in the photo, are a physical trait carried by several members of my family, perhaps handed down from the Field family.
At least one person has said from the eyes and up, I resemble this man. I would love to know!
