In Reply to: Paul and Wayne Fields by Claire Fields of 6855

1930 census for White River, Randolph Co, IN:
FIELDS, Paul W. age 27 b. IN, father b. IN, mother b. OH
wife Gertrude age 28 b. IA, both parents b. IA
son Wayne E. age 7 b. IA
dau Adine R. age 3 b. IA

There's an IA marriage record for Paul W. FIELDS, age 21, b. Winchester IN, to Gertrude REEVES, age 20, b. Livermore, IA, on 12-Oct-1921 in Des Moines, Polk Co, IA. Groom's parents were Willis FIELDS and Fannie THOMPSON. Bride's parents were Joseph REEVES and Mary STEVENS.

I don't know why his mother's name is listed as Fannie on the marriage record when all the census records are Lavinia or some variation thereof.

1920 census for Polk Co, IA:
FIELDS, Willis age 49 b. IN, father b. IN, mother b. PA

There's a marriage record for one of their children that lists Mary's maiden name as STICK.

1850 census, same location:

Nancy age 40 b. TN
Mary age 17
Obediah age 15
Belinda age 14
Enoch age 11
Jane age 9

Bethiah age 1

There are two other FIELDS families on the same page, Perry, age 48, b. NC and William age 40, b. TN, along with wives and children.

There's a user submitted tree at familysearch that takes this line a few further generations back:
