This is my first post to the Canfield, so I wanted to post my interests.
My 3x grandmother was Fidelia Chloe Blighton, dtr of Hiram Blighton and Jemima McWethy. She married Jeremiah Canfield 1842 in Cattaraugus NY. Their children were
Armina b 1844
Marion Matilda b 1846 (my 2x ggrandmother)
Frank Willard b 1849
Hattie Augusta b 1857
Armina was apparently born in NY, while the other 3 children were born either in Dane Co WI, or Monroe Co WI.
The story goes that one day in either 1856 or 1857, Jeremiah went out hunting and never returned. Fidelia remarried to George Tuttle in 1858 (probably still WI), then went on to have 4 more children with George (William, Thomas Monroe, Laura and George). George sr died 1874 in S Dakota, then Fidelia and her children continued to move around abit, then eventually went with many members of her family up to Nanton Alberta Canada in 1901.
I have been unable to locate any information about the parents, siblings etc of Jeremiah Canfield. The only piece of info I have is that he may have been born in Cattaraugus NY.
If anyone has any additional information, I would like to hear from you. Many thanks!
