Your "O'Field vs. Field" information is important to researchers. ..Restating: this is VERY important to researchers.
Please consider using this forum to post more details about your "Johnson O'Fields" family. ..Especially the parents of Johnson O'Fields.
The surname "Field" is mentioned 18 times in my listing of the men of Stand Watie's Regiment (although some, including your "Johnson Fields" are repeated several times), but nowhere is "O'Field" mentioned.
The above referenced men of Stand Watie's Regiment were transcribed from National Archives records in 1989 by Marybelle Wister Chase of Tulsa OK. ..Marybelle gave me permission to publish her listing.
Please know that since the scope of my book covers a huge area (from OKC to Dallas plus Texarkana to Childress TX during the Civil War era), I used data that others had compiled. ..Few grasp why this was necessary. ..It is not fair to compare my 1,022-page book with books that address one battle that occurred in one county in one year. ..Yes, this is the Rubicon that I've tried to cross.
Field's Tavern of Pauls Valley, Garvin County OK. Since Field's was a popular restaurant for many years, I've always thought that this Field family descended from the Cherokees of Cherokeetown, whose residents were from now Cherokee County TX, but this is only speculation. ..Cherokeetown was between Pauls Valley and Wynnewood OK.
Please help me locate an "O'Field" or "Fields" family researcher who addresses this Field family of Pauls Valley OK. Also, please know that the purpose of my 1,022-page book was to compile an outline of the history of Southern Indian Territory.
