Obituary of Andrew Franklin Fields

February 14, 1913
Franklin Fields Dead

     Died in Lebanon Saturday night, after a brief illness, uncle Franklin Fields, aged 81 years and six months. In 1862 he answered his country's call and joined Company A, 16th Virginia Cavalry and was elected Lieutenant, and was a brave soldier. Soon after the war he connected with the Christian church and was an exemplary member of the same.
The writer of this was closely associated with Mr. Fields for forty years and can testify to his high Christian character. A number of his old comand attended the burial of the body.
