Now, when I do a search for father named Erwin and mother named Fields up comes Jasper Erwin and Laura Fields. Did the brothers marry sisters???

If you go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- -- type in Erwin, Jasper, spouse Fields, you'll find a couple of people working on this line. But, one submitter shows Jasper died 1920 in Milam Co, TX. I found that DC and the informant seems to have information all mixed up??? You can contact the submitter, share what you know.

Name: Jasper Erwin

[informant listed as J.E. Erwin, could that be his nephew John E.??? His wife should be Laura Fields.]

Also, I would ask the one submitter on WorldConnect the source for James Erwin as the husband of Elizabeth G.

Well, this gives you some things to work on, hope they help.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
