Emory Canfield died at his home SW of town Tuesday evening, Jan. 2 after a lingering illness. Although Mr. Canfield has been in poor health for a number of months, his death was not expected and came as a shock to his many friends as well as his many relatives.

He was a man respected of all who knew him. He leaves a wife and nine children to mourn his loss. The funeral services were held from the M.E. church Thursday afternoon and were attended by a large concourse of friends and relatives. The remains were laid to rest in Chapel Hill Cemetery. The family has the sympathy of the entire community.
