His Wife: The County review., August 27, 1915, Page 2, Image 2 (Riverhead, N.Y.) 1903-1950: OBITUARY MRS. LUCRETIA FIELDS. East Moriches — Mrs. Lucretia Fields, for many years a member of the Eighteenth Street M.E. Church of Brooklyn, N.Y., died on August 10th, after two months' sickness at the home of her grandson at 668 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn. She was born in Brooklyn seventy-nine years ago, a daughter of the late Albert Voorhees and Catherine Stillwell Voorhees, and was a descendant of the old Long Island family. She was the widow of Warrington Fields, who died thirty years ago and is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Gertrude Bartholomew, of Patchogue, and Mrs. Joseph KcGarvey, of this village, and four sons, Robert, Alfred, Philip and Francis Fields; twelve grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Interment was at Greenwood Cemetery.

This set of 2 brother half brother (Ben & Charles Field) photos were found in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were found with a photo of Willie Watson, assumed to be a childhood friend, with same handwriting on reverse, see his photo here. It is assumed at one time the 3 photos were removed from an old family photo album, which often do not stand the test of time. William "Willie" Watson may be a Brooklyn relative or childhood friend, see here.
