John Field

M, ID# 18991, b. 12 February 1835, d. 10 January 1912
  • Obituary*: JOHN FIELD, PIONEER, ANSWERS DEATH CALL
    SUCCUMBS TO LONG ILLNESS—FUNERAL FRIDAY MORNING.
    Born in Missouri in 1835, He Had Lived in Dallas Forty-Three Years.
    John Field, for forty-three years a prominent resident of Dallas and the head of an esteemed family, died last night at 9:30 o'clock at the family homestead, 3201 Welborn street. He had been confined to his bed for nearly a year afflicted with dropsy. His last moments were peaceful and he died surrounded by his large family. The funeral will be conducted at the home Friday morning at 10:30 o'clock.
    Active pallbearers have been chosen as follows: W. W. Weston, Maj. B. P. Jett, Sydney Noell, George Hughes, W. B. Taylor and H. H. Smith. The honorary pallbearers are as follows: James M. Cochran, Epps G. Knight, R. E. L. Knight, E. J. Gannon, Col. S. E. Moss, J. A. Mahon, Vick Bowles, Jim Field of McKinney, Col. Jonce Dowell of McKinney, John W. Field, L. V. Meyer and Col. Henry Exall.
    Mr. Field was a descendant of a fine old English family. He was born at Warsaw, Henry County, Mo., Feb. 12, 1835, and was the eldest of five children. During the Civil War he was Indian Agent at Fort Arbuckle, Indian Territory. He came to Collin County, Texas, in 1866, and about two years later came to Dallas County. During the active years of his life he was a farmer and was one of the leaders in practical farming in Texas. He contributed many articles to various publications on agricultural subjects.
    In 1871 he married Miss Katie Knight, sister of Epps G. Knight and R. E. L. Knight of Dallas. His wife has been a tireless watcher at the bed of affliction all the months of Mr. Field's last illness. Besides the widow, the following children survive: Joe Field, Dallas; Dr. Knight W. Field, County Health Officer, Dallas County; Mrs. Whitfield Harral, Dallas; Mrs. James G. Field of Chicago; Mrs. W. L. Carwile, Dallas; Mrs. Hugh L. Carwile, Marshall; Thomas Field and Epps Field, Miss Gussie Field and Miss Lucy Wilson Field of Dallas.
    Of his brothers and sisters, only two survive him, Mrs. M. A. Bartholow of Dallas and Mrs. William H. Sells of Berkeley, Cal.
    Mr. Field retired from work several years ago, but retained his active mind until the last days of his life. He gook a keen interest in affairs of the day. He was much interested in the work of the Texas Industrial Congress and only recently expressed the desire to have Col. Exall come out to his home and talk with him. It was a hobby of Mr. Field to keep a diary of the weather which, kept faithfully through many years, was a source of interest and usefulness in his business of farming.
    Among a wide circle of friends Mr. Field was known as a citizen and a kind-hearted father and friend. He was noted for his kindness to those in destitute circumstances. Since his illness an old negro man asked to be allowed to come in and see him. Mr. Field did not remember the old man, but spoke to him kindly. The old negro said "Marsa I tell you how you can remember me. I didn't have no shoes one day long time ago and you called me in the house and give me a pair."9
  • Note*: He owned a 300-acre farm at what now is the area around Preston Road and Mockingbird Lane in Highland Park, a city within Dallas, Texas. After selling the farm to Col. Henry Exall in 1891 for a race horse training track, the family lived for many years in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas. Eventually he bought 1,500 acres in northwest Dallas County, near Farmers Branch.10

M, ID# 18992, b. 7 April 1865, d. 6 March 1936

R.E.L. Knight, from a newspaper obituary.
  • Note*: Except for time at college, he lived in Dallas County, Texas all his life. His obituary says that he married in 1892, but his widow's obituary says that they married on 29 May 1890 (at her parents' home). He was president of the State Fair of Texas, was a leader in developing the state's centennial celebration, which occurred in Dallas, and was a fellow of the Dallas County Historical Society, an attorney, and a vice-president of National Bank of Commerce. He was born a few weeks before Gen. Robert E.

His survivors included his wife, a daughter, four sons, and seven grandchildren. His photograph was published with his obituary on the front page of the 7 Mar 1936 edition of The Dallas Morning News.9,11,12
