Dorthy Field Merchant, and Donald Eugene Field, Francis O'Hearn was their mother. Grandpa Ray married the other woman and lived in Benton Harbor I only met her a few times, and is buried there. Dorthy has two daughters Sandy (Prentiss) and Pat Merchant, Sandy has a son Donald and a daughter Christy, Pat has one daughter Kate. The story his mom Great-grandma Waite would tell is that Grandpa was born in a lumber camp in the upper part of Michigan, she was the cook and his dad worked cutting lumber. He was an only child.
My dad is Donald, ( so my name is after him) Donna Jean. he was married 4 times! I am the oldest, I have one own sister Debbie Robertson. I also just started to research the Field side of the family. We are a very small family! I keep in contact with my cousins, and have a few pictures of grandpa and grandma. Hope this helps!I live I Kalamazoo, Mich
