I am researching the Cora Belle (Westfall) and Lewis Fields family.
I know Cora/Lewis Fields were in Ill per the 1900 census....
in Gibson, Colorado per the 1920 census.
I had information that they had a daughter Mildred Jennie who was born in Hastings, NE Dec 4, 1909.
I just found Mildred Jennie (Nixon) in the 1930 census in CA and it says her brother Russell was living with them...
The census says Russell was born in NE.
So, somewhere between 1900-1914 Cora/Lewis Fields lived in NE, I believe in Hastings.
I know Cora/Lewis's first 4 children were born in Ill,(born 1897, 1899,1900 & 1902) then
comes child #5 Dale Willard (maybe born in NE) because the next two (#6 Russell, no birth date and #7 Mildred Jennie born Dec 4, 1909) that really look like they were born in NE (Hastings I think). Then in 1914 Cora and Lewis are in Kansas...as I have the obit for child #8 who died at the age of 2. I do not know where this child was born...NE or KN.
If anyone has any info about the Fields family in NE...I believe Hastings somewhere between 1902-1914, I would love to hear from you.
I realize this post if rather confusing, but this search for the 11 children of Cora/Lewis has been rather confusing.
Cora Belle Westfall was my great grandmother's sister.
Thank you so much,
