Rev. Spurgeon Jay Mayfield (March 26, 1896 – August 18, 1978) was a pastor who served community churches in some of the WWII-era temporary housing projects, including Harbor Homes and Auditorium Village.

Mayfield was born in Georgia on March 26, 1896, according to his gravestone 2. However, early census data suggests a birth date closer to 1890. He was the second or fourth oldest of 11 children of farmers Charley and Cornelia Mayfield.

In the 1930 census, he was listed as a Methodist Pastor at Gammon Theological Seminary in Atlanta, GA.

He married Berry Mae Ode (Mayfield) (July 31, 1903 – August 16, 1952) and they had a daughter, Sara Ann Mayfield (Ford) (February 18, 1936 – October 28, 2009) while they were living in Corpus Christi, Texas.

During WWII Mayfield served as a chaplain and was a captain in the U.S. Army. He was released from duty in 1947 while serving as chaplain at Fort Mason in San Francisco.

His name appears in events at Bayview Villa Community Church in 1947–1954 5, Auditorium Village in 1955–1957, and Harbor Homes in 1955–1962. 4

Mayfield died August 18, 1978. He and Berry are buried in the Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno.
