Nellie Meacham Fields was the third-born daughter of Alexander Teagarden Fields (1841-1904) and Sarah “Emma” L. (Meacham) Fields (1843-1886). Buried near her parents on the FIELDS family plot at Colfax City Cemetery, Nellie had been a principal in the city schools of Minneapolis, Minnesota and subsequently taught school in Anaheim, California. Nellie’s middle name was, of course, her mother’s maiden name.
Her stone reads, "Nellie M. Fields, June 23, 1876, Jan. 29, 1960."
Almost 84 upon her death, Nellie remained single throughout her lifetime.
There are no post-ems notes associated with this record.
