  • Notes 
    • Notes for Col. John Field:
      Frederick C. Pierce in his Field Genealogy (Chicago: Hammond Press, 1901) says that Col. John Field married Anna Rogers Clark the sister of George Rogers Clark. Col. John Field did marry someone named Anne or Anna, perhaps even an Anna Clark, but not the sister of George Rogers Clark. George's sister married Owen Gwathmey and her age does not fit the birth dates of the children of Col. John Field. Anna Rogers Clark was born 14 July 1755 and married Owen Gwathmey on 20 October 1773 when she was 22 years old. Owen Gwathmey survived her by 8 years. They are both buried in the Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Kentucky. (Dorman, John F., "Descendants of Anne Clark wife of Owen Gwathmey" in Genealogies of Kentucky Families, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing County, Inc., 1981,pg. 394) "John Field was Lt. under George Washington in Braddock's Campaign, and commanded the Virginia Troops at the Battle of Point Pleasant, on the Ohio River for which his heirs were granted, by Lord Halifax, a large tract of now in Bourbon County, Kentucky." (McAllister, Edward N. and Annabelle C. McAllister, Estes Genealogy: Estes Families of old Clay County, Missouri. Their Ancestors and Descendants, 1972)

      Note:
      I agree with you that Frederick C. Pierce (1901, "Field Genealogy") was wrong and that Anna CLARK is not a sister of George Rogers CLARK (son of John CLARK & Anne ROGERS). However, Pierce also created the myth that Anna's middle name was "Rogers" and that she had a son, George Rogers FIELD; I've found no primary evidence for either. Please see pedigree chart linged above.

      *Not, as often alleged, sister of explorer William CLARK and Gen. George Rogers CLARK (sons of John CLARK & Anne ROGERS); middle name not "Rogers" (Roberts, 1995: 129). The source of these myths appears to be Frederick Clifton Pierce (1901: 1104-1107). Also, Anna is said, by Pierce (1901: 1107), to have a son, George Rogers FIELD, but no such son is mentioned in Col. John FIELD's will, something even Pierce acknowledges. It appears George Rogers FIELD may have been manufactured to support the myth of Anna's parentage.
