Hi Jean,
No, I'm not related. I just like to help people who are "stuck".

I found the 1880 Census where JOhn, Eliza and children are living in Dyer Station, Gibson, TN.

I think John died there since he doesn't appear on any other Census.

There are lookup volunteers at who can look him up in their sources. If they don't find him, ask them where or how to look him up in the death indexes, maybe a local genealogy society.

In 1900 Eliza was living with James's family at Garland, Dallas, TX.
James H. Canada, b. TN, 28, farmer.
Mary E., wife, b. TX Nov 1878, marr 6 yrs.
Ossie J., son, b. TX Oct 1895.
Lula M., b. TX May 1898.
Elsie R., mother, b. Nov 1848, TN, widow, had given birth to six children but only four alive in 1900.
Junia M. Canada, sister, May or Mch 1887, TN.
Alva J. Trentam, servant.

I didn't find Eliza or James in the 1910 Census. I'm assuming that Eliza died in Dallas Co.

There is a death date volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to

Look at ALL for County and Shelli.

She can look up Eliza's death in the Texas Death Index.

There is Beth Canada's Family Tree, which contains the James H. Canada family.

In 1920 they were living in Hunter, Choctaw, Oklahoma.

John D., b. TX< 13, farmer @ home.
Allie R., son, b. OK, 11, farmer @ home.

Born=18 Feb 1872, Tennessee

Alfred E. Canada, brother, b. TN April 1879, single, farmer.
