Florence Lucile Field, 89, a longtime area educator and resident of Bourbon, Ind., died at 6:15 p.m. June 30, at Miller's Merry Manor Nursing Home in Plymouth. Mrs. Field was born June 12, 1907, on a farm near Twelve Mile, Ind., to Samuel Jacob Wagoner and the former Anna Blanche Kinneman. In 1944, she married Ernest Albert Field, who preceded her in death in 1967. Mrs. Field graduated from North Liberty High School in 1925, and received a $100 scholarship from the township trustee. This enabled her to attend Indiana University for the first year. She earned her Bachelors and Masters degrees in education from Indiana University. In 1926, she began her teaching career as the school ''Mistress'' at the Kaley School near Culver, where she taught all eight grades and lived with one of the school families as part of her compensation. She also taught at a one-room school in downtown Lakeville. Subse-quently, she taught in the Hobart, Madison Township school systems. From 1956 to 1972, she taught third grade at the Bourbon and Triton school systems.

Following her retirement from Triton, Mrs. Field continued to pursue her love of teaching, helping adults and children to read and to improve their reading skills. She taught adults in the Man Power Program and nearly always had one or more summer students who were trying to improve their reading. She was active in the Indiana Retired Teachers Association right up until the time of her recent illness. Mrs. Field was an accomplished genealogist and was active in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and the Marshall and Fulton County Historical Societies. Her most recent research project was to catalog photographs and oral histories of the more than 20 one-room schools that once existed in and around Bourbon Township. Mrs. Field was a member of the Pine Creek Brethren Church, The Coalbush Evangelical Church and the First United Church of Christ in Bourbon. She was a member of the Bourbon Friendly Neighbors Club for 40 years. She was an avid gardener and the neighbors will miss driving past her country home and seeing the ever abundant flowers.

Mrs. Field is survived by a son: Alfred and a granddaughter Alexandra both of San Diego, Calif; a sister: Dortha of Gaithersburg, Md., a brother, Raymond Wagoner of Apache Junction, Ariz., and many loving nieces and nephews who fondly remember their Aunt ''Sis''.

ObitJohn's obituary was published in the The Columbus Gazette on 18 March 1864:

An Old Citizen Gone. Died, in Clinton Township, Franklin County, Ohio, March 7th, 1864, John Field, aged 100 years, 1 month and 18 days.

Thus another of the Pioneer men of our country has fallen asleep, for he literally went to sleep. Without any disease the wheels of life ceased to move, nature being worn out. He had long passed the age allotted to man, even reaching to five score years.
It is well perhaps to recollect the condition of our country at the time of this aged patriarch's birth. It was just after the close of the French and Indian war, only 9 years after the memorable defeat of General Braddock. Washington himself was then comparatively a young man, being only 32 years of age. Mr. Field was 24 years old when the first white men settled in our state; forty-eight years of age when the first lots were sold in Columbus; has lived to see our State brought from a howling wilderness to beautiful fields and gardens; has seen his country engage in four dreadful wars. The Revolution, War of 1812, Mexican and present war of the Union, to swell armies of which he has given some half a score of his grandchildren.
Mr. Field was a native of Connecticut, of small wiry frame, untiring in his endurance, of very moderate habits of both food and drink. As to intoxicating liquors, he 'touched not, tasted not, the accursed thing.' After several removals, at the age of 70 years he came to reside in Franklin County, Ohio, and settled in Clinton Township upon a new farm entirely covered by primitive forests. And now commenced to the aged Agriculturist the most interesting part of his life. With his own hands and labor he cleared up his farm of 150 acres, planted an orchard which he has lived to see in bearing, and to eat of the fruits thereof for these twenty years. Let not men say that it is too late in life for them to plant fruit trees. Mr. Field also scored, hewed and framed - all of his own labor - timber and built for himself a large barn after he was 80 years old. On the 19th day of January last, he celebrated his 100th birth day by inviting in all his neighbors without distinction, and treated them to apples by the bushel and cider by the barrel, the product of his own orchard. Those present had the pleasure, yea and profit also of listening to an elegant discourse by the Rev. Mr. Weaver of Westerville, after which all were invited to tarry and partake of the feast of good things from the tables of his son, Walter Field, Esq., loaded with all the delicacies of the season, which was done justice too till about sun down. Mr. Field, or 'grandpap,' as he was familiarly called, was strictly moral and upright in all his dealings.
He was for many long years a devoted member of the Methodist church and died in hopes of a blessed immortality. On the 9th of March his funeral was attended by a vast concourse of friends and acquaintances, who listened to an eloquent discourse by the Rev. Mr. Mitchell, of the Ohio Conference, M. E. church. After which his remains were deposited in the earth by the side of the wife of his youth, who had preceded him to the grave some twenty years. 
NoteB
THE MCKENDREE METHODIST CHURH 3330 Cleveland Avenue Columbus, Ohio 43224

The spirit of McKendree Methodist Church is older than that first Sunday School charter, older than that first simple frame building. When the desire for Christian worship and fellowship became strong enough in the hearts of a small group of early Ohio pioneers of this region that they braved the perils of untraveled forest paths, encounters with wild animals and Indians, deep snows and wintry blasts and other hardships relevant to those early days, to meet together in their simple homes, for religious worship, then was the spirit born that years later became McKendree Church.

The Reverend Henry Innis was the first to open his home to this group of zealous Christians. His parents were devout Quakers of Pennsylvania, but Henry was converted to the Methodist faith when a young boy. He joined the army (War of 1812) and after that he was ill and was directed to the home of Mr. Elias Pegg, Jefferson County, Ohio and asked for a night's lodging. He later married the daughter, Isabelle Pegg. One of his sons, William Henry Innis, was an active member during his entire life. His eight children were all loyal supporters of the church. Outstanding among them were Adam G. and Lew W. Innis, Ada Innis Brand, Louvina Innis Dumm.

The first official organization of McKendree was the adoption of the constitution of the United Sunday School, June 16, 1832, The first school Was organized as an auxiliary of the American Sunday School Union of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The officers for 1832-33 were: President, Joseph Pegg; Vice President, Henry Long; Treas., Henry Innis; Secy., William Morse; Managers: Isabelle Innis, Sarah Field, Matilda Pegg, Hannah Morse, Mary Ann Long, Nancy Sprague, Walter Field, John Field, and William Sprague.

Regular meetings of the Sunday School were held with occasional preaching services when an itinerate preacher would come riding through the region on his trusty horse. This was on the Worthington Circuit and the area covered a stretch of territory from Stratford to the North boundary of Columbus as we know it today.

At the time of the building of the first church, July 6. 1849, McKendree was on what was then known as the Worthington Circuit consisting of nine points: Worthington, Gardner, Bethel, Asbury, Fletcher, Mifflin, Stratford, Clintonville and McKendree. Trustees were Alonzo Bull, James Ferris, Joseph Webster, Henry Innis and Andrew Wilson. Land for the building was given by John Baker and Col. Gustavus Swan Innis. There is a small cemetery of approximately 25 graves behind the church, These names have been recorded and are filed at the Ohio State Library.

Abstracted from "The McKendree Story, 1832-1957," by Mrs. Neil D. Rush. 
NoteB*
John Field was small in stature, a fine noble character, only he smoked several years until he was sixty years old. He had "hemorages" and the doctor told him he could not get well unless he quit smoking. He quit and lived to be over one hundred years old. He weighed 135 pounds. His wife Elizabeth was a doctor for many years, also a fine Christian, her usual weight near 300 pounds. She was called on many times to give medicine to the sick. One of her medicines was a cure for drunkeness, which made them so sick they could no longer stand the smell of whiskey. - Recollections of his granddaughter, Sophronia Field, recorded about 1950.
