    Elijah and Betsey share a gravestone with their son Edward
    and his wife Emeline in Center Cemetery, Bridgewater, CT.
    The stone is in good condition but not easy to read or
    photograph due to the shallow depth of the inscriptions.

    By 1930, only a few Canfields were living in Bridgewater.
