    Davy Crockett's Daughter Dead
    Mrs. Matilda Fields passed away Sunday Last
    On July 6, 1890, died at the home of her daughter in Kenton, Mrs. Matilda
    Fields, in the 69th year of her age. She was the youngest daughter of
    Davy
    Crockett. She had three brothers and two sisters, all of whom she
    outlived.
    Mrs. Fields married three times. Her first husband was Thomas Tyson; her
    second was James Wilson; and the third, R. Fields.

    In girlhood she was remarkably handsome, of vivacious temperament, fond of
    dancing and carried into all company the sunshine of her own joyous
    disposition. In her early womanhood she became a convert to the Christian
    faith and joined the Methodist Church and lived up to the time of her
    death
    an upright, consistent and devoted member. She inherited the firmness and
    candor of her father; was rather slow to reach conclusions and tenacious
    of
    them when formed. She exemplified fully his noted maxim, "Be sure you're
    right, then go ahead."
    Her education was quite limited owing to lack of schools in her early
    years
    for West Tennessee was then a new country and sparsely settled. Yet she
    was
    a woman of clear mind and adhered to duty with unyielding fidelity. She
    died
    surrounded by all her living children; Mrs. Mary Floyd, Mrs. Candace
    Edmundson, and Mrs. Sallie Bryant and a host of relatives and friends.
