    Joseph Fricker, William's 2nd adoptive father, or foster father, was born in South Stoneham where Telford Field died, I believe. The Fricker name is also quite common in the Isle of Wight where William Watson/Mumford/Fricker, who was actually a Field descendant, lived as a toddler; the Cowes census of 1901 being the earliest proof of his existence when he was allegedly 3 years old, and this was at the end of March when the census was done. I would also be suprised if there is no connection between the Fricker famliy of Ham & Joseph Fricker of South Stoneham near Southampton, though I would not go so far as to say that I would be "astonished." It certainly is worth looking into.

    I was mistaken when I initially believed that William and Telford Charles Field were cousins. For the sake of living relatives, I can not give more details about who William's father likely was.

    Are you now saying that his father wasn't a member of the Field family and you aren't going to tell us who he was and how you know????? You cannot libel a dead person remember.
