J.G. Canaday, former Baker and Halfway resident, died in the I.O.O.F. home in Portland Sunday morning, according to information received here.

Mr. Canaday came to Oregon in the early 80’s before the railroad was built through this section. He engaged in Carpenter work in Baker up to the time he went to Halfway and remained there until he was no longer able to continue his work, when he went to the I.O.O.F. home.

Mr. Canaday, who was never married, was about 80 years old. He had been a member of Baker lodge No. 25, I.O.O.F., for more than 40 years.

Five nieces and two nephews live in eastern Oregon. They are Mrs. J.P. Ritter and Mrs. W.G. Bussard of Halfway, Mrs. W.P. Claflin of Prairie City, Mrs. Mamie Mahan and Mrs. W. H. Browning of Baker and Guy and Walter Canaday of Halfway.

Funeral services will be held in Portland Wednesday at 2 p.m. by the Odd Fellows lodge.
