Jesse As A Cowboy

The Field Connection
by Joe Field, p.43

According to Joe Field, a grandson, Jesse Alexander Field and a friend decided to go to Texas and become cowboys. The two young men did just that, but after a while, they decided that “cowboying” wasn't what it was supposed to be. They wanted to come home, but had no money for the trip.

Joe continues the story: “They came upon the idea of Grandfather Field becoming a traveling preacher. While Grandfather preached, his friend mingled among the crowds they were able to attract and solicited funds to continue their journey. At least they were successful enough to make it back.”

This may have been o­ne of the shortest “pastorates” o­n record. That was the first and last time Jesse Field preached.
