Edwin J. Canfield, Once of This City,

Brought From Detroit for Burial.

March 15, 1934 (nsp)

On Saturday night, March 10, the body of Edwin J. Canfield, a former St. Louis resident of many years, was brought from Detroit, and funeral services were held on Sunday morning from the Crandell Funeral Home with Rev. R. O. Moon officiating. The body was placed in the vault at Oak Grove cemetery for burial later beside the wife who preceded him in death several years ago.

Edwin J. Canfield was born September 30, 1859, the son of Elvira and Increase B. Canfield, and died March 8, 1934, in a hospital in Detroit. At the age of three years he came to St. Louis with his parents, where he grew to manhood. In 1882 he was united in marriage with Hannah Lucretia McCoy of Pleasant Valley, MI and six children came to them, two of whom died in infancy. The family left St. Louis about 1910.

Surviving are one son and three daughters: Arthur H. Canfield, Mrs. Charles Anderson, Mrs. Wilfred Predhome, of Detroit, and Mrs. Edward Mears of Boston, Mass; sixteen grandchildren and one great grandchild. Also one sister, Mrs. Oscar Hale of Lansing, MI.
