Laura Polka (Freeland) Fields

Born November 15, 1885 in Buchanan, Tennesee
Died July 8, 1919 in Birmingham, Kentucky

" Laura Polka Freeland was sometimes called Peggy.  We don't know much about her.  She died mysteriously in 1919 and I have not been able to find a death certificate for her (which is odd, because by that point they were keeping them regularly - they had started the practice in 1911 in Kentucky).

Bryant and Laura were originally buried in the old Birmingham Cemetery (now Birmingham Island Cemetery) but when TVA created Kentucky Lake in the late 1930s and early 1940s, most of the graves were moved to "new" Birmingham Cemetery in Briensburg, KY.  There are now four generations of Fields buried there.
