Fielding with mother and three of his brothers moved to Dent county when he was 10 years old and settled on the old homestead before the outbreak of the Civil War. In the closing year of the war he drove an oxteam in a train supplying the commissary department of the federal Government at Rolla, Missouri. At the close of the war he returned to Dent county. A highly respected citizen until the day of his death.

At the age of 28 he professed his faith in Christ and lived a faithful and humble Christian life. He was the youngest of five brothers and the last to respond to man's final roll call. Every member of the group lived their life past eightieth mile stone of life. Fielding was a man of remarkable memory and knew more "pioneer history" than anyone of Dent county. He has always had thoughts near the scenes of his childhood and for many years in all the affairs of his community. Truly, it may be remarked in the language of a poet, "We shall not see his like again."
