  • Note:
    The book: Sayre Family - Lineage of Thomas Sayre, a Founder of Southamption, page 100 says Josiah died Jan 1, 1895 but A History of Thomas Canfield and of Matthew Camfield states on page 78 that he died 31 Dec 1894, just a days difference.

    The following material was contributed by Dr. Anthony L. Troha:
    The Reverend Josiah Flynt (or Flint) Canfield was related to both the Canfields and the Caldwells, and he was a clergyman, so some detailed pieces were written about him. Please note that the Flynt or Flint in his name is likely a surname of an ancestor, but I have not been able to ascertain from which parental lineage it stems.

    Page 78 from the cited History of Thomas Canfield. . .:
    "Josiah Flint Canfield 6, s. Isaac & Margaret (Caldwell) Canfield. b. 22 March 1808, in Morristown, N.J. d. 31 Dec. 1894, at Ocean City, N.J. m. 1, Sarah Campion, 31 March 1835. 1 ch. Anna G. 7 m. 2, Sarah Elizabeth Jackson, 13 April 1841. 1 ch. Margaret W. 7 m. 3, Abigail R. Clark, 3 Sept. 1845. 3 ch. Mary A. 7, Emily G.7, Albert 0. 7 He was a member of the Newark Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and for thirty years was a circuit rider in the southern part of New Jersey. He had a great many charges. When he became superannuated, he went to Spring Creek, near Curran, Sangamon Co., Ill., where he purchased eighty acres of land and commenced farming and the cultivation of small fruits. He introduced some of the best varieties of fruit from New Jersey, particularly strawberries. He was largely instrumental in the introduction of the Early Rose potato, paying forty-eight dollars a barrel for the seed potatoes; he sold the increase at the market price of the ordinary varieties, as it was his constant desire to aid his fellow man. His last years were spent at Ocean City. Buried at Bargaintown, N.J. Chart 8."

    Finally, a memorial was written by a fellow clergyman:
    Minutes of the Thirty-Eighth Session of the Newark Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church held in Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church, Tottenville, N.Y., April 3 to 9, 1895, edited by H. D. Opdyke and John F. Dodd (1895).
    In the section entitled "VI. Memoirs.", there is a memorial for the Reverend Josiah Flint Canfield by John F. Dodd. For brevity, only the relevant segments are quoted.

    Page 66:
    "Rev. Joseph Flint Canfield, born March 22, 1808, at Morris Plains, N.J, passed to his reward on high from his home at Ocean City, N.J.. December 31, 1894, having completed nearly eighty-seven years of earthly life. He was the son of Isaac and Margaret Caldwell Canfield, being the youngest of ten children, all of whom grew to manhood and womanhood, and all of whom he outlived."

    Page 67:
    "Our brother was thrice married, his first wife being Sarah Campion, of Vincentown, N.J., who died in 1840, leaving one daughter, Mrs. H. D. Canfield, with whom he spent the last twenty years of his life, and at whose residence he died. His second wife was Eliza Jackson, of Rockaway, N.J., who died soon after her marriage in 1842. In 1845 he was married to Abigail Clark, of Philadelphia, who survives him, as do all his children, five in number."
