Annie Weed Candee Scofield was the daughter of Julius Alonzo Candee and Evelina Weed Candee. When she was 18 years old, after playing a set of tennis, she was struck down with polio. While Annie lived, she was reduced to a wheelchair. At this time, she had been engaged to Edwin Lewis Scofield of Stamford, a wonderfully kind and generous man who saw past the wheelchair to the lovely woman she was. They were married on the 15 October 1879 in Norwalk, Connecticut. To this union was born one child, Edwin Lewis Scofield, Jr, who grew up to become an attorney like his father.

Despite the fact that she was an invalid, she was very active in the Stamford community. She was the President of the Connecticut chapter of The Sunshine Society, an international club dedicated to bringing joy and sunshine into the lives of shut-ins. Mrs. E. L. Scofield was also a member of the Audubon Society, the DAR organization and active in various philanthropic endeavors along with her husband.
