Monterey County: Biographies


T. J. FIELD is a native of Indiana, where he was born forty years ago. He spent a part of his boyhood days in Kentucky, and went south in 1863, where he remained until 1874. He entered the employ of the Louisville and Nashville Railway Company in 1865, and has been connected with railroads in some capacity most of the time since. He came to this State in 1875, and for a number of years was a conductor on the Southern Pacific Road. He is now, and has been for several years, managing the ranches and other business of the Munras family, of which his wife is a member. He has resided in Monterey for the past seven years. In 1884 he was elected Supervisor while East, and last fall was re-elected without opposition. He is married and has two children. His wife was Miss Danglada, an accomplished lady and a resident of Monterey. Mr. Field is a man of fine business ability, of unimpeachable integrity, and his popularity is best attested by the way he has been retained as a member of the Board of Supervisors.
