John Wesley Field

My grandfather, John Wesley Field, often told of a conversation he had as a youth. When he was small, his parents, Jesse A. M. and Susie Murrell Field, purchased and moved their family to what was known as “The Old Springer Place”. Shortly after they moved, Wesley was sitting o­n the fence in front of the house when a man walked by. They began a conversation. After a while, the older man asked the youth, “What's your name, Son?” My grandfather's reply was, “It used to be Field but I reckon it's Springer now.”
