Research Note:
It appears that Fielding's first wife died before 1900, as he is reported as a widower in the 1900 census. However in the record for his second marriage he is shown as divorced, and it is not uncommon for divorced persons to have been listed as widowed in census records. Still, no record of her has been found after the 1882 birth of her son so she may in fact have died.33,34
