Death*22 November 1723 and died on 22 November 1723 in Bridgewater at age 40.3,4
Research Notes*Some confusion exists in determining the correct events in the lives of Ruth Field and her niece Ruth Field. Aunt Ruth was reported, by the Field source, to have died on 22 November 1723, yet the parents attributed to the Ruth Field who died on that date, in the Bridgewater vital records, were Richard and Susanna Field, the parents of niece Ruth. The Field source also reported that niece Ruth was still alive and under the age of 21 on 25 March 1731 when her mother was appointed her guardian. A review of her guardianship record confirms it was the aunt Ruth Field who died in 1723.3,4,1,5

(Husband) Deathbefore 22 February 1749/50Zebulon became a widower when Anne (Williams) Field died before 22 February 1749/50.3
Marriage*22 February 1749/50He married second Patience Wetherell of Norton, daughter of Nathaniel Wetherell and Mary White, on 22 February 1749/50 in Easton, Bristol County.1,8
(Lessor) Land Records3 December 1750 On 3 December 1750, almost eleven years after Zebulon and his first wife Anne Field made a 20-year lease agreement with William Leonard for land on the easterly side of the Mill River in Taunton, William Leonard, cordwainer of Taunton, and his wife Sarah Leonard sub-leased the property to their son James Leonard 4th "so called", also a cordwainer of Taunton. The sub-lease restated the original lease's expiration date of 23 February 1759 and described the property as a certain parcel of land meadow upland lying on the easterly side of the Mill River in Taunton and southerly and east from the land of Ephraim Wetherell, then south from Edward Adams's and west of the land of Abiel Williams, then northerly exclusive from his meadow fence where it then stood and that had been Joseph Williams'. The deed instructed that neither James Leonard nor any of the neighbors mentioned were to make use of any timber growing or lying on the land by cutting or carting it off the land in any shape or form whatsoever nor cause it to be done and included similar instructions regarding dung and stones. The deed further instructed that no timber or wood was to be cast upon the land to die or rest useless. James was, however, to have free liberty to timber and stone for fencing and building a house or barn upon the land, except that the house where William lived was to be left for his use with full liberty to pass to and from his house to cut fire wood for his own use during the time of the lease. The indenture stated that if William were to move out before the expiration of the lease agreement, then James was to improve the house. The agreement was recorded in Bristol County on 13 December 1750.9
Death*1 July 1797He died on 1 July 1797 in Taunton at age 89.10

Birth*4 March 1719Zobiah Field was born on 4 March 1719 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). The Field source stated she died on 26 November 1722, however also stated her mother Susanna was appointed her guardian on 13 April 1730 because she was under 14 years of age. No record of her death was found by this researcher in the Bridgewater records.2,1
Death*22 November 1722According to the Field source, she died on 22 November 1722 at age 3. Her sister, the first Susanna, died on that date and her death was recorded in Bridgewater. It's possible, of course, that the sisters died on the same day, however no record of Zobiah's death has been found.1

The gravestones were in the Old Rossorry Graveyard in Enniskillen and his graveyard project was unfinished at the time of his writing. Most of the newspaper notices were found in the Enniskillen Chronicle and Erne Packet, although some were also from the Enniskillen Impartial Reporter. Those he included were described simply as "relevant" to the families or individuals mentioned on the gravestones.
