2038. Elizabeth McCarty (200) was born about 1832 in Edgefield, South Carolina. The 1850 census of Dale County, Alabama, gives her age as 18. At this time she was single and living in the home of her father, Judge Philip McCarty. She evidently married Thomas M. Field early in 1850 and moved to Mississippi, shortly after 1854. Her oldest child, Mary, was born in Alabama, in 1854. Elizabeth does not appear in the Dale County census after 1850. In the estate settlement of Philip McCarty, Dale County, Alabama, October 15, 1889, Vol A, P 194, is found this entry: "Elizabeth, wife of Thomas M. Field; to wit: Thomas Emma, and three others unknown." Elizabeth, no doubt, was dead and her children were declared her heirs. In the final settlement October 27, 1892 Vol. A, P. 96, is this notation: "Heirs of Thomas M. Field to wit: Emma, Mary, James, Eugene over age and reside in Texas." On P. 100 are receipts showing these persons were paid $25.30 each: Emma Harkley, Thomas M. Field, Eugene L. Field, Mary Creel, Frank Field, Mattie Ashley.
The Field children came to Texas about 1880, as Mary (Field) Creel's family appears in that census of Bowie County. The youngest Creel child, John T., is one month old and born in Texas. Eugene Creel is shown with the Creel family. Whether Elizabeth and her husband came to Texas is not known. They have not been found in any Texas census, and if they are buried in any of the cemeteries near the old Creel home, they have no markers. Their children: Mary Rebecca, Emma, Mattie, Thomas M., Eugene L., Frank.
2039. Mary Rebecca Field (2038) was born March 29, 1854 in Alabama, and died December 1, 1928. She is buried in Bluff Creek Cemetery in Polk County, Texas. She married in Mississippi to "Tink" Graham [NOTE: according to Kelly Parks, Tink's name was Jonathan E. Graham, son of Irvin ] who was killed there between the birth of their last child, in 1876, and her marriage to James T. Creel in 1878. Her Graham children: William E., Mollie. Mary married, second, James T. Creel, a widower with four children. All of these Creel children remained in Bowie County Texas, where they settled after coming from Mississippi to Texas, and many of their descendants still live there. They seem, however, to know nothing about the second set of Creel children. Mary Rebecca and Jim Creel 's children: Tom, Rissa, Mattie, Walter, Emma Florence, Charles Earl.
2040. Emma Field (2038) remains a mystery. That she was living in Texas in 1892 and that she was married to a man named Harkley is certain, for the court records in the settlement of the estate of Phillip McCarty so state. She was given her part of the estate as "Emma Harkley."
2041. Mattie Field (2038) married "Buck" Ashley some time before 1892, as she was given her part of the Philip McCarty estate at that time as Mattie Ashley.

2042. Thomas M. Field, Jr. (2038) was married to Rebecca Martin January 21, 1885 at Paris, Texas, by J. R. Ryan, justice of the peace. Relatives say he might have lived near Hobart, Oklahoma, but extended search of that area did not reveal anything about him or his family.
2043. Eugene L. Field (2038) was born about 1861 in Mississippi, according to the Bowie County census of 1880. He was called "Bun" by his family. He was married to Purney Reynolds July 4, 1897 at Paris, Texas, by C. F. Dawson, an ordained minister, according to the Lamar County, Texas, marriage records. They had at least two daughters, Minnie and Willie Mae. Nothing more is known of Eugene.
2044. Frank Field (2038) is listed in the estate settlement of Judge Philip McCarty as having received a share of his mother's estate in 1892. Relatives say he died young. In an earlier part of the estate settlement a James Field was mentioned at an heir, but no relative ever heard of him. It is possible that Frank's name was James Frank Field.
