Men of Faith And Action
 
J.M. Canfield is remembered by many people in the city of Indianapolis as having established more churches up to his time than any other minister in the Church. At least eight churches in the last part of the nineteenth century and the early days of the twentieth century were established by him. He did a great work as an evangelist and was pastor of many churches in Indiana.

Location of the Grave of John M. Canfield
 
John M. Canfield is buried in the Crownhill Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana. The location of the Crownhill Cemetery is at: 330 West 32nd Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208, (317) 920-2631. Go to the office for assistance. They have good maps, or see the online map made available through this site here. The Canfield plot is in Section 39, Lot 510. The family marker is of good size as can be seen in the photos below. According to Terry Gardner, if you travel around Section 39 in a clockwise direction, it is easy to see the Canfield monument from the road. However if you approach it from the opposite direction it is easy to miss because of the way the monument is turned. So bear this in mind when looking for the monument.
