Lois died approx 1903, and her 4 children by 3 husbands were raised by her parents, Martin & Elvira MOLER. I hope someone has a record of Lois's death. John CANFIELD was the son of Elisha CANFIELD & Sara(h)GRIGGS, and was born between 1860-1862. I can find no record of him after his 3rd marriage in 1894.
