The inscription for Alexander Teagarden Fields on this large family monument at Colfax City Cemetery reads, "Alex T. Fields, Mar. 1, 1841, Jan. 4, 1904." Born in Pennsylvania, Alex migrated to Iowa with his parents in the mid-1850s. As an adult, he was a merchant and lived with his wife and five daughters in the counties of Iowa, Poweshiek and Jasper in the State of Iowa. After the death of his first wife, Sarah "Emma" L. (Meacham) Fields in 1886, "Alex" remarried in 1893 to Margaret (Eckles) Leighner, who died in 1926 and is buried in Los Angeles County, California.
