Ira Lark Fields

Ira Lark Fields , about 28 years of age, not long before he married my grandmother. He was the last child to leave the farm, and he had a little money to build up his celluloid collar collection. He told me that he placed them in a special box with slots so they wouldn't get broken. He had four of them that he really liked. Several years later he had four children, and no collars left intact___broken up because they got into them and played with them. Children never change!

Lark Fields was born on January 27, 1872, and died May 7, 1962. He married Fannie Ellen Fisher and they had four children....Penny Fields Gardner
