and settled in Pennsylvania and in 1865 they came to Washington county, Iowa. On Christmas day, 1876, she was united in
marriage to Charles CAMPFIELD (sic, should be CANFIELD). To this union six children were born: George, at home; Lloyd, of Fedora, S. D.;
Isabel DUKES, of Ellston, Iowa; Grace EAGLE, of Baker, Oregon; Clarence, of Kansas City, Mo.; Fern STAGNER, of Kansas City,
Mo.; and also seventeen grandchildren. Of these one great grandchild, one sister and three brothers survive to mourn her
loss. The surviving sister and brother are: Mrs. Anna McCARTNEY, of Chicago; George of Omaha, Neb.; Henry, of Chicago, and
Henry of Washington county, Iowa.
The deceased settled in Ringgold county, Iowa, forty-five years ago and for 35 years she
has lived on the home farm. Since living on this farm she united with the M. E. church in Beaconsfield, Iowa. On Christmas
eve Mrs. CAMPFIELD (sic, should be CANFIELD) was stricken with paralysis from which she never rallied. All was done that loving hands and kind hearts could do,
but to no avail and on Saturday evening, January the second, she passed peacefully away to be with her Savior.

The family and relatives wish, through these columns, to express their gratitude to all who have manifested their kindness to us
during our hour of sorrow and bereavment.
