I am a relation of Fields.
I noticed there was nothing regarding his wife and children that might help others track back to me!
My sources are family letters from books- one by Lucullus Virgil McWhorter
Border Settlers of Northwest Virginia. and a History of Greenbriar County.

Fields MCWHORTER was born in McWhorter's Mill ( now Jane Lew, Lewis county) in Virginia ( Now West Virginia) in his grandparents cabin. Built by Henry MacWhorter
The cabin at last research (see book by LV McWHORTER) was still standing in a state park in WV and the towns Jane Lew McWhorter are still on the year 2000 maps for WV
Fieldslived with his grandparents when his parents moved to their own home.
He was postmaster of the first post office in McWhorter's Mill
He was married at the place of his birth. To Margaret M. KESTER
b. 13 APr 1801 and she died 2 Aug 1856 in Sullivan County ,Missouri
1833 Whthe cabin land was sold to Edward Jackson, he moved family to Marion CountyOH. . He taught school farmed for 8 years. He also studied Medicine at that time and became proficient, and a practising Dr.
They moved al;ot. When his wife passed he married Sarah O. Darr Collins and had 3 girls and 1 boy ( unkown to me.)
1861 enlisted in 23rd Missouri Regiment. US Army and fought in the Battle of Shiloh where his regiment was captured.

Fields and Margaret KESTER-MCWHORTER begat Judge Joseph Marcellus 30 APr 1828,Henry Clay, prominent Virginia men,and others I have
They also begat my GGgrandmother-
Sarah Anne McWHORTER
b. 13 Nov 1844
Married 1853
Died July 1911
She was married to William Thomas GARTON
Father of Georgia, Grace, Garton, Glen O'Dell, (unknown child) and
my Ggrandmother Lillie Belle GARTON-TIDD
b.23Jan 1864 Lewis county VA
Died : 22 Dec 1936 Centralia, Lewis county, WA
Married: 16 Sep 1893 to George William TIDD, a widower
who had a son from prev marriage name of William I TIDD 12 Jul 1880
They had my grandmother Gertrude Belle TIDD-WOLTER-FOWLER-SMITH
Married to George WOLTER15 Mar 1923 in McQueen, AK? ( not verified yet)
and on on.
I hope this will spark a few leads.
