The following obituary appeared in a Clinton, MO newspaper:
"T. H." Canada Dies
"Funeral services were conducted a 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 20, at the Wilkinson Funeral Chapel, for Thaddeus M. ("T. H.") Canada, 84, who died Thursday, January 18, at a hospital in Venita, Okla., where he had lived some four or five years prior to his death.
Mr. Canada was for many years a resident of Clinton, as he operated a knife-making business here for more than 35 years. Thaddeus Marion Canada was born March 31, near Waverly, Mo.
He was wed to Isabelle Harrison on October 21, 1885, and to their union were born seven children, two of whom survive.
In 1900 the family moved to a house on East Elm Street, and here it was that Mr. Canada began to ply the trade at which he later became so proficient and for which he was so well known. Any kind of scrap metal---an old car bumper, part of an unused washing machine, a nondescript garden plow---was a potential knife to Mr. Canada. Especially did his resourcefulness stand him in good stead during World War, II, as he manufactured jungle knives to further the war effort.
An interesting, colorful figure, Mr. Canada traveled widely over the entire nation, finally purchasing in 1924 the home at 515 East Lincoln which is now occupied by Mr.and Mrs. Ancell. Mr. Canada made extended visits in Clinton, staying with Mr. and Mrs. Ancell and renewing friendships of earlier years.
Surviving Mr. Canada are two daughters, Miss Elsie Canada, Chicago, and Mrs. A. N. (Nellie) Ancell of 515 East Lincoln Street; a brother; Albert Canada, Lexington, Mo.; two half brothers, Burl and Will Canada, Knob Noster; four grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and a legion of friends.
Mrs. Canada preceded her husband in death in 1939.
The Rev. A. N. Lindsey officiated at last rites. Mrs. O. H. Hulmes and Mrs James Peelor sang: "Will There Be Any Stars in My Crown," "Will the Circle be Unbroken," and "'Til We Meet Again," with Mrs. Hulmes at the organ. Escorts for the interment in the Hocker Cemetery, north of Knob Noster, Mo., were: Dee Hammond, Joe Oliphant, Bob Van Winkle, Fred LaRue, Charles Cleek, and A.G. Ancell."
