It might be worth it to try to find the birth records of Edith and Cecil to get better confirmation.  In 1880 female daughter appears to be the Edith in 1900 living with widowed Thomas and widowed grandfather Russell.

Thomas Fields Military Papers list Cecil as son and his brother Albert as nearest living relative.  All the pieces seem to fit , but not actual proof.  Did not find marriage record for Ewina and Thomas, or a death record for Ewina.   His burial is listed on his military papers, maybe finding that record would tell more?  In 1880, 1900 and on 1905 Military admission papers Thomas occupation is listed as 'harness maker'  which also seems to fit.

Yes, you are correct,  Lee was son of Tom Fields and Mary Creviston, and Russell Fields & wife Phereby were Tom's parents.  I am related to Henry Fields who was also Reussell's son.
