Joseph Field (1774–1807) was born in 1774 in Culpeper County, Virginia. His older brother Reubin was born in 1772. They were born and raised in Virginia until they moved at an early age to Kentucky and considered to be part of the "nine young men from Kentucky" in the Lewis and Clark Expedition which they joined on August 1, 1803. Both men were known as fine woodsmen and hunters. The brothers returned to Kentucky in 1806. Joseph is thought to have died sometime between June 27 and October 20, 1807.
