The family of Thomas S. Fields (seated, front), warden of the county jail in Media. This photograph appears to have been taken with the wall of the jail as backdrop. See also AP-5945-1 and -2 for Fields in a group of jail employees. The Fields children, gleaned from newspaper articles, are Howard W., Charles, Frank, Bessie, Clara, and Margaret, who, by 1910, was married to Edward V. Streeper Jr. This was confirmed by user Diane Fields Funk, who added this information: "The other daughter is Sara. Mrs. Fields is Sarah Jane (S. Jennie) Walker. Mrs Fields was warden for the ladies in the jail. Sara, her daughter, took over the job after her mother died."
