To the best of our knowledge, Green H. Fields with his brother Henry as a companion must have continued on down the trail from Claiborne Co. TN to Robertson Co, near Nashville. It was around 1832 that Green H. Fields took for his bride Celia F. Jernigan, daughter of William Jr. and Lucy Tarver Jernigan of Robertson Co. His new bride was a native of North Carolina, and her parents migrated from the vicinity of Anson County sometime after her birth on November 25, 1809. It is possible the the Jernigan and Fields families were friends back in Anson Co. NC. The first record that we have located in reference to Green and Celia Fields in Carroll County, TN was that of them organizing the Barren Springs Cumberland Church on February 8, 1840. The church is located in the 23rd District, 10 miles northeast of Huntingdon on the Barren Springs Road, and on February 18, 1840 the church received 14 members which included John Fields, Celia Fields, Nancy Fields, Green Fields, Cena Jane Fields, and Smith Fields. Additionally, Green H. Fields was the first deacon of this Church. The Information above copied verbatim from The Jernigan Home Page published on the internet as site Old records also show evidence that education was of importance to the Fields family. Early records show a school named Fields School which is located in the 9th Civil District in Carroll County about 7 miles north of Huntingdon. The school was named after a relative, Johnny Fields, who gave about one acre of land on which to build the school. Green H. and Celia along with their children moved to Collin County, Texas in 1853 and settled in Sedalia, six miles northeast of Anna.
