Some Family Land history……Post Civil War, Jon’s great, great, Grandfather gathered his family and moved to northeast Texas after the Civil War. They purchased 400 acres, which provided for their family. They grew crops, cattle and timber and truly lived off the land. In the 1930’s Cecil (great uncle) and Cyrus(grandad) moved to Shreveport and established Fielder’s Grocery. They sold the business and purchased the Caddo Parish farm. Jerry Fielder(dad) later purchased the farm from the family where many of the Fielder extended family live to this day.
Interesting fact #1 …. Before moving to the farm, Jon as a child lived just a few steps from the Osborn-Hays Shreveport Office in Spring Lake.
Interesting Fact #2…..Like Andy Osborn, the Fielder legacy involved grocery store business on Fairfield Avenue and in Dixie Gardens
