M, ID# 19009, b. 21 November 1876, d. 13 October 1918
  • Obituary*: LIEUTENANT KNIGHT FIELD DIED IN FRANCE OCT. 13.
    Confirmation of the death in France of Lieutenant Knight W. Field has been received in a letter from one of his friends there to his mother. Mrs. John Field of Dallas. No information upon the way in which Lieutenant Field met his death has been given, either by the Government or by unofficial sources. He died Oct. 13 at one of the hospitals near the front and was buried the following day. His grave was marked by a friend i the service so that it might be recognized.
    Lieutenant Field was the son of the late John Field, an old settler of Dallas County. He was born near Dallas in 1876, and was educated in Dallas schools. He attended Bingham Military School, in North Carolina, and was then sent to Tulane School of Medicine. Later he studied at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He went into service immediately upon declaration of war, and was stationed at Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., before going overseas. He sailed for France in June.
    Lieutenant Field is survived by his mother and six sisters, Mrs. Whitfield Harral, Mrs. W. L. Carwile, Mrs. Earl Watterworth, Miss Lucy Field of Dallas; Mrs. H. R. Carwile of Marshall and Mrs. James G. Field of United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md., and by three brothers, John Y., Thomas U. and E. K. Field.9
  • Note*: He was educated in public schools in Dallas, Texas, Bingham Military School in North Carolina, Tulane School of Medicine, and Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He entered the U.S. Army immediately after war was declared, served at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, and sailed for France in June 1918. He died in a hospital near the front while serving as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. He was buried in France, but a monument for him was placed in Cochran Chapel Cemetery in Dallas; it gives October 7 as the date of his death, but a news article gives October 13. His survivors included his mother, six sisters, and three brothers.10,6
