According to an 1882 History of Linn Co., Missouri, Stephen A. Field was city attorney and clerk of Meadeville, Linn Co., Missouri. He'd come to Chillicothe, Mo. in 1869, had studied law in 1871, being admitted to the bar in 1872. From 1873 to 1875, he was deputy sheriff of Livingston Co., Missouri, and in July 1878, came to Meadeville after a brief stay in Cunningham, Chariton Co., Mo.
While the history states that Stephen was born 20 Oct. 1850, I think he was actually born around 1848. He was the second of four sons born to a 4th great uncle of mine, William Field (c.1820-1852) and his wife Cleopatra L. Henley (1824-1907) who were married in Randolph Co., NC, in 1845.
The sons were, as best I can figure them: Julius Eugene Field (c.1847-after 1880, probably the J. Eugene Fields in Chesterfield, SC in 1880), Stephen Augustus Field (c.1848-after 1882), Rev. Melville Chafin Field (1851-1919, m. Flora Ledbetter, lived in NC), and William A. Field (c.1852-after 1920, m. Mattie E., lived in Shasta Co., California in 1900-20).
After William Field's death, Cleopatra married Green B. Lamb (c.1820-July 1859) in 1858. They had one son, Charles B. Lamb (c. 1859). After Mr. Lamb's death, Cleopatra married George W. Baldwin in 1864. He died sometime before 1870. They had one son, Daniel Leonidas Baldwin (1866-1934).
Cleopatra and Daniel were in Caldwell Co., Missouri, but I can't find Stephen Field. I'd love to know what happened to him.
