      1851 - Andrew asks brother to verify service record
      Kimbro-Field: A History of the Kimbro and Field Families of Middle Tennessee, 1993, p. 63.
      In 1813 Andrew volunteered for the 5th Regiment Virginia Militia. in a letter he wrote to his brother, James, on July 16, 1851, he asked James to verify his participation in the War of 1812: "For a particular Reason i wish you to get a Certificate for me to this amount. A. Field
      "We do hereby Certify that Andrew Field formerly of bedford County & State of Virginia but now a Resident of Williamson County and State of Tennessee Marrched with us in the Company of Captain Willie Jones to the Town of Norfolk in the State of Virginia and there with us joined the army the 5th Regiment Commanded by Col parker & Lieut Col preston in the year 1813. Given under our Hands this day of "I wish you to sign this or one like it & get one or two moreto Do it & Oblige yours & A FIELD"
      __________
      From 1842 until 1852, Andrew and his wife, Franky corresponded with his brother in Virginia. The letters are all addressed from Andrew and Franky Field, Spring Hill, Williamson County, Tennessee, to James Field, Bedford County, Virginia. The early letters were mailed to the Fancy Grove Post Office in Bedford County, while the later ones were sent to Davis Mills. I have copied excerpts of the letters leaving the spelling and capitalization as it appeared in the original. I have, though, inserted a few commas and periods to make the reading a little easier. The orginals are in the possession of the family of Mrs. Carole Field Rakes Guedes of Orlando, Florida, a 3rd-great-granddaughter of James Field.
