Notes for Lucy Fields Keesee:
Attachment to e-mail from Barbara Scott Wyche to CEB, 26 July 1999:

My Aunt Lucy was schizophrenic. She received shock treatment at a facility in San Antonio. I remember we took my grandmother to see her. I was five, so it would have been 1945. She referred to Uncle Raymond as "he." When she got out of the hospital, she was to live in an apartment in Dallas. One day when Uncle Raymond came home, she had moved back into their home in Ft. Worth. He moved out but continued to support her. She was the most beautiful of my grandmotherís sisters. She was very neat but strange and very jealous of Aunt Mary and Aunt Evelyn. The family kept secrets from her to avoid her wrath.

      479. Lucy E.7 Garrett (Paulina Jane6 Calvert, Mary "Polly"5 Keesee, Thomas4, George Faris3, Richard2, George1)2750,2751 was born ca. 1852 in Texas2752,2753, and died Unknown.

Notes for Lucy E. Garrett:
Lucy could NOT have married Randolph on this date--she would've been too young?

Notes for George F. Randolph:
George F. Randolph was a relative of Thomas Jefferson, according to J. W. Baker's History of Robertson County, Texas; this is plausible, as the Jeffersons and Randolph's are known to be related. See also, "History's the star of Calvert's show," Texas (Houston Chronicle Magazine), 4 April 1999, p. 6: More than 1,900 residents [of Calvert] became ill [in the yellow fever epidemic of 1873], and at least 300 died, including George F. Randolph, a nephew of Thomas Jefferson." The author of this piece, Melanie Gilbronson, probably got this information from Baker's history, however.

Notes for Scott Field:
Soldier's Application for a [Confederate] Pension, #49968, State of Texas, was filed by Scott Field, Sr., 13 July 1931. At the time, his address was Calvert, Robertson County, Texas. This pension was approved 13 July 1931 (the same day it was filed!). In his application, SF stated he served from Mississippi from September 1863 until the close of war and the cessation of hostilities, about May 1865. He had been a resident of Texas since December 1872, and, at the time of application, was 84 [therefore born circa 1847]. When he enlisted in Harvey Scouts, attached to W. H. Jackson's Division, Forrests' Command, composed of Ross's Texas Brigade and Armstrong's Tennessee Brigade (cavalry), he resided in Canton, Mississippi. His wife was not living at the time of his application. Witnesses were J. A. Foster and William McIntosh.

The file contains an affadavit by C. E. Holmes, who appeared before H. Holmes, notary public, Yazoo County, Mississippi, testifying they were both members of the same company; "that he served with Mr. Field during a part of the Georgia campaign when the western army was commanded by General Joseph R. Johnson, and in the Tennessee Campaign when the army was commanded by General John B. Hood, and from then on to the end of the Civil War"; and "that so far as he knows, Mr. Field and he are the only survivors of their company, and he is 85 years of age January 1931 and that Mr. Field has informed him that he was eighty-four in January last." Sworn 15 June 1931.

The application packet also contains a letter from Joe Y. McNutt, County Judge of Robertson County, to the Hon. Geo. H. Sheppard, Comptroller of Public Accounts, Austin, Texas, 11 July 1931. McNutt refers to SF as "former Congressman from the 6th District" and "a successful lawyer," who "has been careful and prudent in his Judicial affairs. But in recent years he has had financial reverses. He is 84 years of age now and is total blind, has an attendant constantly with him to guide and direct his steps. . . . I was born and reared in Calvert where Mr. Field has lived for many year [sic] and until recent years has taken an active part in every movement to promote the welfare of the Nation, State County and City. . . and one of Robertson County's most useful citizens . . . He is a member of Camp Towson No 111 U. C. V. and has been Capt. Commander of that Camp for a number of years."

The last document is an Application for Mortuary Warrant. It states that Scott Field, Sr. died on 20 December 1931 in Calvert, Robertson County, Texas, at the home of his son Tom Field. The undertaker was P. H. Tindall, of Calvert, and on 20 December 1931, he prepared the body for burial. W. S. Parker was the attending physician and stated death was from "cerebral thrombus."

There is also a Confederate Pension Widow's Application, Texas #50010, filed 27 July 1931, for Virginia Field, widow of Harry Field. Documents in the application state that Harry was Scott Field, Sr.'s brother and served in the same unit. Harry Field died 8 November 1915 in Robertson County, Texas. Virginia married him 13 October 1881 in Robertson County. Virginia was a resident of Texas since 23 February 1864; she was age 67, born 23 February 1864 in Robertson County; her current address was Calvert, Texas. C. E. Holmes also made an affadavit for Harry Field's service, similar to the one he made for Scott Field, Sr. The Mortuary Warrant states that Mrs. Virginia Field died 2 July 1937, in Calvert, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Anne Field Taliaferro. P. H. Tindall was the undertaker; the doctor, W. P. Parker(?) said she died of nephritis and [can't read].
