Genevieve Wren Martin Canfield ~ Married in 1882 to Richard A. Canfield, of Providence, Rhode Island, who would later gain fame as "America's Greatest Gambler"; owner of private casinos in New York City, Saratoga, New York, and Newport, Rhode Island. Genevieve Canfield would outlive her husband by four decades. The Canfields had two children ~ a daughter, Grace Martin Canfield, [ who had one son, Martin E, Hannon, Jr., by her first marriage ], and a son, Howland D. Canfield, who died at the age of twenty-three ( see the entry for Howland D. Canfield, also at Swan Point Cemetery in Providence ). After Richard Canfield's untimely death, in 1914, Genevieve, and her children, lived comfortably on the fashionable East Side of Providence, through the benefit of her late husband's will.
