Author - Newspaper ColumnistMedora Field (1892-1960) was born nearby on the site of the present Lindale Baptist Church. In her early twenties she became a member of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Magazine staff, and later was married to Angus Perkerson, its editor. For many years, troubled people sought the sympathetic and sound counsel she gave in her weekly column as "Marie Rose." She was the friend of the friendless. Through offices held in her Church, in the Child Service Association of Atlanta and in organizations of writers, she became an influence for good throughout Georgia and beyond its borders.
