Cancer Victim a Leading Senath Citizen for More Than 40 Years

A.A. Caneer, 62, resident of Senath for more than 40 years, died last Thursday at his home in that city, following a prolonged illness, death being due to cancer of the intestine for which he had twice submitted to operations.

Funeral services, conducted by the Reverend Ellis, pastor of the Methodist church assisted by the Reverend Liddell, pastor of the Baptist church, were held Saturday afternoon at the Methodist Church of Senath, of which Mr. Caneer was a member. Members of the Masonic Order, in which Mr. Caneer had taken an active part for many years, were in charge of the services at the grave. The large crowd attending the services, despite the terrific cold weather attested high esteem in which he was held.

A.A. Caneer was born in July 12, 1873, near Milan Tennessee, the youngest of seven sons and two daughters of W.T. and Sarah Karnes Caneer. After being educated in the rural schools of his native county and in the Milan High School, he attended the Gem City Business College at Quincey, Illinois, moving to Senath when a young man 21 years of age.

When he first came to this county he clerked in a store operated by his brother, J.I. Caneer and John M. Karnes for four years. Then, with his brothers, J.I. Caneer and W.T. Caneer Jr., he formed the Caneer Brothers Store in 1899, one of the leading firms of South Dunklin County for a number of years.

In 1902, he was married to Miss Floye Stewart of Beebe Arkansas, who with two daughters, Mrs. Marie McGough and Miss Dorothy Dan Caneer survive. He is also survived by one grandson, Morty McGough in whom he was greatly attached.

In 1904, when the Caneer Brothers Store was incorporated, the Citizens Bank of Senath was organized and A.A. Caneer became head of the bank with W.T. Caneer assuming management of the store. In those early days both businesses flourished and in addition to his activities in business, Mr. Caneer was most active in all community affairs, and probably no other person took a keener interest in or was more responsible for Senath's progress during this period.

In 1920, Mr. Caneer fell victim to the malady which was eventually to cost him his life and which caused him to spend two years seeking relief to various hospitals and sanatoriums apparently without results, when in the late part of 1921, Dr. Tipton informed him that death was only a matter of a few days unless he submitted to an operation which offered a 1000 to 1 chance to save his life. Consenting to the operation, he secured relief which permitted him to regain most of his former health and vigor. During this period, however he had sold most of his interest in the bank and other concerns.

Upon regaining his health he opened an office for the writing of insurance and making of farm loans; also serving as a notary public. His wide acquaintance with all public affairs made his office in Senath more or less a general information bureau and "Abe" usually referred to his office as Rockefeller Wall Street 26. He never ceased to be a practical joker.

By the latter part of 1934, the old malady attacked again, causing him to submit to another operation which offered only temporary relief, and at the time he was in the hospital then his friends feared that he would never recover but he pulled through and again resumed his business and continued to enjoy life during the greater part of 1935.

Late last year, with a recurrence of the old trouble, Mr. Caneer again went to his doctors seeking relief, but this time they told him there was nothing medical science could do for him and told him he might as well go home to await the inevitable. He realized then that the end was near and during the last few weeks he suffered intense pain but he never lost his cheerful spirit. He made such preparation as he could to get his business in shape. During this time he announced to his family and friends that he was ready to go. In his last moments he cherished the memory of the boys of his young manhood.

At his request, his nephews acted as pallbearers at the funeral. They are W.C., Fred, Brady and Ralph Caneer, Wallace and Hershel Taylor, Ben Browning all of Senath and Roy Browning of Cloleman Texas. Edwin Browning was a honorary pall bearer. Two other nephews live in California and not present for the funeral. In addition to the widow and daughters mentioned, , Mr. Caneer is survived by two brothers, Z.P.Caneer of California, and W.T. Caneer of Senath, and one sister Mrs. Ella Taylor of Milan, Tennessee.
