  Field, Mrs. A. died in Tullahoma Tennessee, Monday 12 Oct 1896 in the 71st year of her age.  Alvinia Brown was born at Lansing, NY and at an early age became a member of the M. E. Church.  She was married to Ansen Field June 1849, who survives her.  Mrs. Stella Hume of Tabor and Wilmot Field of Tullahoma TN are their only children.  Soon after their marriage, they removed from NY to western MI where they pioneered a few years, until Mr. Field, in 1859 went overland to CA, subsequently returning as far as Colorado where Mrs. Field and their daughter joined him.  In 1865, they came to Pacific City and 2 years later to Tabor, where they enjoyed a home for 14 years.  She was a member of the Tabor Congregational Church.  Afflicted with rheumatism, Mr. Field sought relief in a southern climate and found a home in the salubrious climate of the Cumberland Mountains. 



~ source: A few years ago Leland Smith of Tabor, Fremont County, Iowa, abstracted obituaries from the Tabor Beacon newspaper. Tabor is on the county line between Mills and Fremont County, therefore the paper printed obituaries from both counties. These were later microfilmed by the LDS Church on microfilm #1491976.
