Fields in Santa Barbara County

I am researching Edmond Field or Fields who was born about 1830 in North Carolina, according to census records. Family records give his date of birth as Feb 19, 1830 (however these same notes state that he was born in England which does not appear to be true). Edmond Field married Lucy Ann Brooks, d/o William Brooks and Susanna Wyman, on Apr 24, 1856 in Clay County, IL. The family moved to California about 1869. I find them in the 1870 census in Colusa County, and then in 1880 and 1900 in Santa Barbara County. Edmond Fields died Oct 9, 1903 in Santa Barbara, CA. I strongly suspect that Edmond may be a sibling or otherwise related to Thomas Benton Fields who married Charity Chesnut in Jasper County, IL on Nov 8, 1848. They have a son Edmond Fields born in 1857 in Jasper County, the same year that my Edmond Fields and Lucy Ann Brooks have their first child, William Benton Fields. I have info on the Brooks family and it appears that Edmond Fields and Lucy Ann Brooks followed naming traditions with their children, so possible that Edmond Fields is the s/o of William and/or Katherine. Children of Edmond and Lucy Ann are:
1. William Benton Fields b. 1857 IL
2. Katherine Susanna Fields b. 1859 IL; married Samuel Toucy Coiner 1875 Los Alamos, CA
3. John Wesley Fields b. 1861 IL
4. Ezra Grant Fields b. Mar 25, 1864 IL; married Josephine Jamison May 1, 1888 CA; d. 1924 Santa Maria, CA
5. Jonathan Willis Fields b. 1866 IL
6. Cora Ann Fields b. 1869 IL (twin)
7. Frank Dillon Fields b. 1869 IL (twin)
8. Elmer Morgan Fields b. Oct 20, 1872 CA; married Winnifred Williams Sep 22, 1908 Lompoc, CA; d. Feb 1, 1948 Pendleton, OR
9. Charles Coward Fields b. 1875 CA; d. Feb 21, 1909 Santa Ynez, CA
10. Corley Fields b. 1878 CA
11. Harry Martin Fields b. 1880 CA; d. in infancy
