Dates of birth and death from Dimitrov & Couture, Richmond (Kentucky] Cemetery, Inc., Inventory of Burials, p. 17 [text says that this is "Curtis Field Burnam, Jr.," but facts of burial next to Martha Richardson Field, and date of birth which corresponds to that given for Curtis Field, Jr., leads to conclusion that this is burial spot of Curtis Field, Jr.].
History of Masonry in Madison County, Kentucky 1812-1913, compiled and written by Robert R. Burnam, 1914, p. 71. CURTIS FIELD, JR., the son of Curtis Field and Rosanna Hardin was born in Madison County, December 3, 1822. He was on both paternal and maternal sides descended from Revolutionary stock. He was educated at the Madison Seminary, Transylvania, and completed his law course at Harvard University. He came to the local bar about 1845 and practiced his profession until the beginning of the war in
1861. Was Representative in the Kentucky Legislature in 1857, having been elected after a race so heated that the tradition of it still exists. Judge Field moved to Missouri in 1866 where he lived until his death in May, 1890. He engaged while in Missouri in banking and was a very successful businessman. Courteous, intelligent, honorable, he made friends at all stages of his life and died honored and respected by all who knew him. His remains were brought back to his native County for burial, and were interred with Masonic honors as he had requested. He was made a Mason in 1846, elected Master in June, 1849, and again elected June, 1851, succeeding in both instances his cousin, Curtis Field Burnam. He was High Priest of Richmond Royal Arch Chapter, 1854. He never removed his membership from his mother Lodge, preferring as he said to keep this tie with our people. He married Martha Richardson of Louisville. To them were born a large number of children, many of whom are dead, the others residing in distant states.
