Look in the Enterprise Cemetery.
Are you LDS? If so go into newfamilysearch.org the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints genealogical website.
Are you doing research for yourself or others?
I am a local historian and I can help you out. I am the East Company Daughters of Utah Pioneers historian for Washington Co. Utah.
I am a Ms. not a Mr.

All my family on my grandmother's side were and still are Mormons. My grandmother married a Catholic and when they divorced my mother went to live in a Catholic school in Salt Lake city which is no longer there.

I sent in my DNA to SMGF and my DNA was a match for Edna Canfield Jones. I was hoping she might have been connected to my grandfather John Canfield born in NY about 1841. He was Mormon and so was his wife Alice Hatch. This is where my brick wall is. Everything I have, I have proven and sent into familysearch. Just can't find anything past them.

Thank you for any help you can give.

Two articles related to a Edna Canfield Jones.

The first article lists a William Jones, husband to Edna Canfield Jones.
The second one is the obituary you requested, her husband was Henry Jones.

Open House Scheduled For Once American Fork Man William H. Jones

ST. GEORGE - The family William H. Jones, former resident of American Fork
will honor their father in an open house Saturday to celebrate his 90th birthday. Friends and relatives are invited to the St. George Second-Eighth LDS Ward chapel, 118 S. Main St., between 7 and 9 p.m. A program will be held at 8 p.m., a family spokesman said. The family requests no gifts.
Mr. Jones, or "Will," as his friends call him, was born July 19, 1886 in Enoch, Utah, the second child and first son of John J. and Louisa Carolina Dover Jones.

He worked as a carpenter and built many homes in the Cedar City area. He moved to American Fork in 1929 where he and his family lived for 25
years. He lived in Mesquite, Nev., before moving to St. George on retirement.
He still enjoys working in the garden and spends many hours working in the LDS temple.

On June 12, 1907 Mr. Jones married Amanda Hunt in the St. George LDS Temple. They had two sons before her death in 1910. On Sept. 24, 1912, he
married EDNA CANFIELD in the same temple. They had 10 children.
Mr. and Mrs. Jones celebrated their 50th wedding
anniversary in 1962, prior to Mrs. Jones death.

He is the Father of 10 living children, Mrs. Amanda Faucett, St. George; Mrs. By (Bessie Pierce) Allen and Mrs. George (Viola) Taylor, both of Provo; Leslie "Bill" Jones, Klammath Falls, Ore.; William "Dee" Jones, Lacentra, Calif.; Francis C. Jones, Buckeye, Ariz.; Mrs. Gerald (Fern) Godard, Thousand Oaks, Calif.; and 0. John Jones, Bountiful. Two sons, Alvin and Duard are deceased.
Mr. Jones has 41 grandchildren, 34 greatgrandchildren and three
sisters, Mrs. Evan (Vivian) Williams, American Fork;
Mrs. Heber (Hattie) Prisbey, Cedar City; and Mrs. Lilfie M. Tail, Central.

By the way, the Catholic girls school you spoke of in Salt Lake City, was St. Marys.

William's first wife, Louisa Carolina Dover

Thank you very much for the obits, now I have to connect the two Canfields some how. Edna and my great grandfather John Canfield.
Who ever thought genealogy was easy, Lol, I don't think so.

To the people who responded in June, I thank you also for all the information.

I have been battling lung cancer and I am on the mend, thanks to the good Lord and all the prayers.
