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

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.)
