      Below is a very interesting comment from Colin Field on an item in the last newsletter (30)

      I was interested to read in the last will and testament of "Michael Scott Field of Forbes" that he bequeathed "all the real and personal property of which I shall be possessed to my daughters Daisy Florence Field, Mary Pearl Field and Sylvia Field in equal shares". What is interesting is that the last mentioned "daughter", Sylvia, was not his daughter (though raised as such) but rather his grand-daughter, being the daughter of his other (and eldest) daughter, Sarah May.
