Ann, I have been looking for information on my grandfather, William Archie Field(s).
I have found his name both with and without the "s" in different censuses. I think
his father was Levi Field, born in Pa. about 1856, and Eliza, born about 1854 in
England. I have found other sources that say both Levi and Eliza were born in Ill.
The 1900 Wyoming soundex shows this couple as having 3 sons, George, William, and
Levi O, all born in Wyoming, and her daughter, Bessie M Robinson, born in Ill. Do you
have anything on them?
