Robert E. Canfield, 77, of Rt. 1, Buena Vista, a retired official with the paper industry, died Sunday in Stonewall Jackson Hospital.

Mr. and Rms. Canfield moved here in 1972 from New York City and built their modern house, Lee's View, with a commanding view of the valley and mountains.
Born in Columbus, Ohio, Mr. Canfield grew up in New York, where his father founded the Canfield Paper Co., and graduated from Dartmouth College and Harvard law school.
He was a partner in the New York law firm of Wise, Whitney and Parker and successor firms from 1934 to 1956. From 1957 until his retirement in 1968 he was president of the Printing Paper Manufacturers Association.
Since his retirement he had continued to take an interest in the Canfield family property at Arlington, VT.

He is survived by his wife, Althaea Kindlund Canfield; a son; a daughter; and six grandchildren.

1910 and 1920 census they're in Westchester Co, NY

I'm sure you can take it from here.
