Married Mehitable Bern 14 Nov 1836 in Jackson Co Michigan. Second marriage to Elizabeth.

From the "Free Baptist Cyclopedia" pub. 1889, by Burgess and Ward:

"William P. Fifield was born in Salisbury, N.H, July 7, 1813, and died in Jackson, Mich, Feb. 12, 1880. He came to Michigan with his parents, Enoch and Abigail (Stevens) Fifield, in 1830, locating on a farm near Jackson. He united with the Baptists in 1834, in name, but not in heart and shortly afterward became connected with the Freewill Baptists. He firmly maintained the principles he so dearly loved to the end. He was deeply interested in all the denominational work, cheerfully contributing as he was able for its maintenance. He with an older brother, Geo. W. Fifield, who d. May 29, 1888, and Deacon Zina Allen, were closely identified wih the FWB interest in Jackson from the organization of the first church until the present (1889), often holding the ground against overwhelming difficulties. Bro. Allen still lives at the advanced age of nearly 80 years."
