Hi Julie,

I DID have the birth date and location of birth CORRECT for JOHN FIELD so Iím not TOO far off. Thank you for giving me the names of Johnsí parents! I am including my sources of information for John Field and Lucinda Look:

Listed name as Lucy Look; m. in Ashfield, Franklin Co., MA 16 March 1790 John Field: Source: Family History Library, Salt Lake City UT, Film #0902896.

Because of your reply, I won't list a death date or location for John Field until I get something more definite. I am also going to change their marriage year as being 1789 in Franklin Co., Massachusetts.

I did find information about Eliakim Field and Esther Graves, Johns' Parents. I hope that you will helping me by providing information about children of John Field and Lucinda Look.
Thank you again,
