Fifield Family Page

New England, Canada and Iowa

Maybe our Fifield line connects with the Fifields of New England, we know both Hiram and Benniah went back to that area and married their second wives. Our knowledge of Benniah is limited to what Peter Wells has shared with me. Our information on Hiram comes from letters and stories told by the family. It is reported when he made his first to Canada he did so in a wagon with a sign that read "From Enfield, New Hampshire to Detroit Michigan". He must have taken a wrong turn and ended up in Ontario, Canada! Family letters tell us he was traveling with Johathan Currier, they went to Ontario, Canada as Mrs. Currier's brother lived there. The brother-in-law, being Thomas Choats, who was an English Captain and was married to Ann McCartney. During this visit Eliza Black was living with the Choats's (Ann was Eliza's aunt). Hiram was engaged to a girl in New Hampshire named Lettie Gile, he did, however, stay and marry Eliza. This is a family story, I have no proof that it is based on facts. Hiram and Eliza both died in Dorchester, Middlesex County, Ontario, Canada.
