(Formerly Julius P.L.Fielding, Undertaker)

In 1912, Julius P.L.Fielding established a funeral business on the northeastern corner of King and Queen Streets. In 1928, Julius acquired 122 Logan Street, a three-story Georgian style structure built in the 1700s with 12-inch thick exterior walls and unique Muntin Bar windows with 18 lite sash-nine/nine. The building was covered with stucco to cover the cracks in the bricks, equipped with earthquake rods and bolts and in 1948 or 1949, a seven-car garage was added. After his death on July 12, 1938, in accordance with his Last Will and Testament, James H. Rodolph and Dr. John Allen McFall, Sr., Trustees, sold the business and distributed the proceeds to his children which they did by forming a new corporation, Fielding Home for Funerals. The stock was distributed to the four surviving children, Emily Felicia, Herbert U., Timothy W. and Bernard R. Fielding and the Manager, Charles C.Mason and the Assistant Manager, Fred C. Brown.
