Bonnie Fields was given the middle name “Darr” for Dr. Darr of Ladora, Iowa. Youngest daughter of Alexander Teagarden Fields (1841-1904) and Sarah “Emma” L. (Meacham) Fields (1843-1886), she was the last to pass on. Her body was shipped from Long Beach, California to Colfax, Iowa where she joined her father, mother and two elder sisters on the FIELDS family plot at Colfax City Cemetery. Bonnie was a nurse during World War I stationed near Paris, France. Later she was a beloved first grade in Anaheim, California. Thirteen typewritten pages of Bonnie’s recollections describe her childhood in Iowa, and her adult life. She never married.
Not buried on the FIELDS family plot:
Bonnie’s (elder) twin sister, Bessie Bricker Fields (named for Dr. Bricker of Ladora, Iowa), married Rufus B. King and is buried in Kerrville County, Texas.
The second-born daughter of Alex and "Emma," Harriet Luella Fields, born in 1872, married George McCutchen McBride and was a missionary for the Methodist Church in South America for 17 years.
Bonnie’s parents, Alex and “Emma,” also had twin boys who were born in Koszta, Iowa County, Iowa on March 12, 1878 and died on the same day (March 12, 1878). Without markers, they are believed to be buried at the Koszta Cemetery near their paternal grandmother, Mary Ann (Teagarden) Fields (1813-1878).
