Ed. Canfield, 68, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was brought here for burial last Monday. He died at his home on Friday, June 30. Mr. Canfield was born near Armstrong and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. David Canfield, early pioneers of this vicinity.

He was married to Agnes Shively [sic], also of Armstrong, and to this union ten children were born. Seven of them now living were present at the burial services. Ollie Canfield of Creston, Iowa, a brother of the deceased, was also present at the burial services.

The Canfield family moved from Armstrong to Sioux Falls 30 years ago where they have since made their home. Mrs. Canfield died four years ago and was buried in the Armstrong Cemetery.

After the ceremony 30 of the relatives gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Miller where a lunch was served before they departed for their homes.
