THE THOMAS SANFORD FAMILY



While a lad on his father 's farm, entirely as an amusement, he, un-
aided, quite successfully mastered the trade of a cobbler and wallet
maker. Any points that troubled him he would get the trick of doing
by watching the shoemaker when on a trip to the village. His greatest
trouble was with the farm hands trying to sleep while he was tapping
boots in the adjoining room. The bench he used was of his own make
and is still preserved.

In August, 1871, he entered the law office of Tappan & Erwin. at
Potsdam, as a student, where he remained till the fall of 1872, when
he entered the Albany Law School, from which he was graduated, and
admitted to the bar in June, 1873. On bis admission to the bar he
again entered the office of Tappan & Erwin as clerk, where he
remained till December, 1874, when the law firm of Swift & Sanford
was formed, at Potsdam, N. Y. In the summer of 1876 this firm
was dissolved, and Mr, Sanford continued to practice alone till the
summer of 1888, when the firm of Swift & Sanford was again formed
and continued till the summer of 1892, when, owing to his duties as
President of the People 's Bank, Executor of his father 's will, and
other trusts, he withdrew from the firm, though continuing the
practice of law privately for some ten years.

While practicing, one case came to him which became of national
and even international repute. This was the case of Eiggs vs. Palmer,
reported in 115 N. Y. Eeports, 506, where it was laid down for the
first time, at least in English Jurisprudence, that the beneficiary
named in a will who takes the life of the testator for the purpose of
coming into possession of the property cannot take as legatee or
even as heir.

For eight years, from 1881 to 1888, Mr. Sanford was Treasurer of
the Raquette Valley and St. Regis Valley Agricultural Society, and for
the year 1889 served as its President, to which position he was
re-elected but declined.

From Nov. 1. 1883, to Nov. 1, 1886, he, with his brother Herbert
and Simeon L. Clark, composed the firm of Clark, Sanford & Co.,
which did a large business in the manufacture of lumber, butter
tubs, etc., at Parishville, N. Y.

In 1888, upon the earnest solicitation of several business men, he
entered upon the task of organizing and establishing a second bank
at Potsdam, which he successfully did — The People 's Bank of Pots-
dam, N. Y., opening its doors for business the 5th day of May, 1889,
in the Knowles Block, corner of Elm and Market Streets, with Mr.
Sanford its President, to which office he has been unanimously re-
elected annually to the present time (1910).

In February, 1898, the Bank purchased the lot and building of the
National Bank of Potsdam, to which it soon removed. One of the
proudest incidents in his experience arose on the failure of the
National Bank of Potsdam, in January. 1897. Immediately on
learning of its suspension, and well knowing that there would be some-
thing of a run on his own bank, he telegraphed the Farmers ' and
People's Banks, of Malone, N. Y., and each instantly volunteered

ten thousand in currency. The People's Bank now has a capital of
$50,000, and surplus and profita of over $95,000.

He takes special pride in the interest he took and labor given to
the movement which resulted in putting in a complete sewer and drain-
age system in Potsdam Village in the year 1S86, though he was in no
wise officially connected with it. In the spring of that year there
was much sickness in the way of fever, some one hundred and
seventy cases, with twenty-five deaths, of all which he kept a record
and used on all occasions to promote a sentiment for a sewer system,
though threatened with indictment if he did not desist. His office
was a rendezvous for many of the friends of the movement, and also
during the work of putting in the sewer system, at which time the
officials needed much moral help and encouragement, so bitter
against the project did many of the people become (when the sickness
subsided) due to the great expense of the work. Feeling that the
officials who stood so loyally by the work should be remembered, he
wrote a history of the struggle and a tribute to the Trustees which
may be found in his work entitled "Letters, Essays and Biogra-
phical Sketches. ' ' This system was the salvation of the village. From
that day to this it has been one of the most healthful villages in all
the state.

For some years he has been and now is one of the Trustees of the
Potsdam Public Library and Reading Room. It was his initiative
and work that brought into existence, in 1890, the Potsdam Savings,
Loan and Building Association, which has proved quite successful.
He has been its Attorney from its organization.

He was one of the incorporators and builders of the following busi-
ness enterprises, to wit: The Raquette River Paper Company in 1892,
of which he was Vice President from its organization to the rear
1900, when he sold his holdings; The High Falls Sulphite Pulp and
Mining Company in 1892 and for a few years its Secretary; The
Thatcher Manufacturing Company at Potsdam, and for some years
its Vice-President; The Potsdam Clothing and Manufacturing Co.;
and The Potsdam Sugar of Milk Company, all of which tends to
show his public spirit and desire to build up his locality.

In politics he has ajways been a Republican, supporting the party
freely with his pen and as a speaker in Presidential campaigns, though
never "party blind", especially in more recent years. Without ever
seeking office he was made Alternate Delegate to the National Repub-
lican Convention at Chicago, in 1888, and Delegate to the Republican
Convention held at Minneapolis in 1892. At another time he wa.s
Delegate to a .Judicial Convention, where an alluring temptation failed
to undo him, a fact which has since given him conscious pride.

Since attending Cornell University in 1869, he has written a great
deal for the village papers on various topics, municipal matters, poli-
tics, business affairs, notices on the lives of departed friends, moral
questions, etc., the more important of which he published in 1907
in a book entitled, "Letters, Essays and Biographical Sketches."



THE THOMAS SANFORD FAMILY



His father, dying in 1886, made him sole executor of his will and
trustee of one share of the estate, which latter trust he still holds.
As executor he handled and administered the estate for nearly eight
years, and without criticism or complaint.

In 1903 he published a history, of Hopkinton, his native town, a
work of six hundred pages, with one hundred and forty illustrations.
This he did at his desk in the bank with which he was associated,
amidst all its duties requiring nearly three years of time. It proved a
pecuniary loss, but this he in no wise minds, since he did not expect
gain, and since the work has been well received by the people for
whom it was intended.

For full five years past he has given his spare time to the prepa-
ration 01 this work, under the same circumstances, and with no
greater hope of pecuniary return.

speculation. In early manhood he possessed great physical strength
and was an expert at wrestling and other sports. He is an exceed-

four years he was Justice of the Peace of his town. Has been
quite successful. Holds the old homestead and now owns the

Mr. Sanford was a large man weighing over two hundred and
twenty-five pounds, very powerful, able to lift one thousand pounds
in a contest, and a champion wrestler when wrestling was the
fashion. In 1S60 he built a house (now gone) on a farm on the
Turnpike Road, two miles east of Parish\-ille. from which late in
the year 1863 he enlisted into Co. L, 7th N. Y. Heavy Artillery
and went through the Wilderness Campaign. He was made a Cor-
poral, was taken prisoner before Petersburg, and confined in
Andersonville Prison, where he died July 29, 1864. The author
well remembers him. big and hearty and strong, bidding his father's
family goodbye as he went away to war, little dreaming that he
was soon to die, lying on the hot sands of a Southern prison un-
protected from the broiling sun. in the wild delirium of fever and
far away from home and friends.

Mr. Sanford was large and portly of figure, quiet of manner,
well educated and informed, and particularly so in the law, a solid,
sound, able and substantial man, and most highly respected and
regarded. He was beloved not only by his family, but by all who
knew him. The author met him but once and was sjreatly impressed
by his learning, sterling character, breadth of view and sound judg-
ment. As a sound and able man he stood well and to the front
among the descendants of Thomas Sanford.

The following is taken from the resolutions adopted by the
Knox County Illinois Bar upon the death of Mr. Sanford.

Judge P. H. Sanford was educated at Middlebury College,
graduating in 1846. He began the study of law in Burlington,
Vt.. removing to Knoxville, 111., in 1852, where he continued his
study, being admitted to the State Bar in 1S53. He was Master in
Chancery for the Circuit Court for Knox County from 1856 to 1865
and County .Judge from 1SS6 to 1893. He continued in the active
practice of law until 1903, when he was stricken with the illness
that caused his death. During his long and useful life in Knox-
ville. he held many other positions of honor and trust which evinced
the high regard in which his intelligence and integrity were held
by the people with whom he lived. He was County Superintendent
of Schools in the years between 1856 and 1862, Member of the
Illinois House of Representatives in 1871 — 72 and of the State
Senate- in 1873 — 76. serving on the Judiciary Committees in both
houses of the State Legislature and as Chairman of that Committee
in the Senate. He at different times served as ilayor, alderman
and city attorney of Knoxville, and during his entire life he was
a member of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's School. At all
times actively devoting his energy, intelligence and integrity to
the aid of education and the uplifting of civic affairs, he leaves



THE THOMAS SANTORD FAMILY



the record of a well spent life, helpful to the State and to the
community in which he lived.

The members of the Knox County Bar Association deem it
fitting that a memorial of his life and character be spread upon
our records and the records of the Court of Records of this
county. As a member of this Association and of the legal pro-
fession, he was honored and trusted by all, but more especially by
those who were in constant contact with him in the practice of
law, either as an advocate or as a presiding judge. Of a kind and
noble nature, he was courteous and fair to his opponents, but
steadfast to his principles. Faithful in all things to his clients
and engaging only in such causes as he believed to be just, he was
conscientrous, zealous and diligent in their behalf. His sterling
integrity and' high estimate of the duties of the Judiciary, with
his legal ability and mature judgment, caused his judicial acts and
decisions as County Judge, to receive the highest respect of all
members of the profession. His standard of professional ethics
was high. Without malice to individuals, he never represented
anything he considered as being against morality, justice or public
good.

He had also a strong sense of the obligations of a public trust,
and in all the relations of life he fulfilled his duty. Such a life
and character is worthy of the highest regard and recommendation,
and we ask that it shall so appear on record as a token from.
and inspiration and guide to, the members of the legal profession.

He had two children by first and four by second marriage, all
born in Knoxville, 111.

Edgar Sanford died at his home (Benjamin Sanford Home-
stead) Cornwall, Vt., July 17, 1907, at the advanced age of eighty-
two past. He was a man of sterling honesty, strong convictions
and decided opinions, and adhered to them most loyally and tena-
ciously. He was genial and pleasant and greatly enjoyed company,
and especially his home. He greatly enjoyed discussion and argu-
ment and was most tenacious in his loyalty to his convictions. His



NINTH GENERATION 825

entire life was devoted to farming and for some years to the breed-
ing and raising of Spanish Merino sheep, of which he was one of the
best judges in Addison County. The sheep "fever" began about
1864.

In 1862, Mr. Sanford sold a yearling ram for $2500. There were
other cases of sales much above this one. The Merino is still bred
and shipped to the "Western States, Africa and South America
at a good figure though nothing like that obtained from 1860 to
1870.

Mr. Sanford was of a deeply religious nature and took a
prominent part in the church and the religous life of the place.

Sanford Centexni.u. August 28. 1884.

Notice of. this Centennial is inserted here since its conception
was due to him and its success very largely the result of his
efforts. The Middlebury Register of Sept. 5, 1884, gave the follow-
ing account of the Centennial :

The Sanford cousins of the Tribe of Benjamin, 150 in number,
gathered at an early hour on Thursday, August 28, at the old
homestead, now occupied by Edgar Sanford, to celebrate the 100th
anniversary of their ancestor's arrival and settlement in town. At
12 'clock the records of the family which had been compiled were
read by the secretary, Mrs. Chas. H. Lane, tracing them back to
1641. Benjamin Sanford had thirteen children and 260 descen-
dants. After the reading of the record, a picture of the Sanfords
and of the tables and groiuids, which had been so beautifully
trimmed for the occasion with festoons, flags and flowers, was
taken by Dean, the artist. At 1.30 o'clock the friends were seated
at tables to partake of the repast which had been bountifully fur-
nished by the cousins in the vicinity. The menu consisted of
turkeys, chicken pies, pies, puddings and cakes of all description.
After dinner Edgar Sanford welcomed the friends in a very happy
manner and introduced Capt. Henry T. Sanford, of Albany, N. Y ,
who spoke at some length of the noble traits of character of his
beloved ancestors and gave a loving greeting to Aunt Betsey,
filrs. Zim.ri Pond, of Galesbursr, 111.), the only living child of
Benjamin Sanford; and Aunt Anna (mother of Edgar Sanfoi-d),
the only living daughter-in-law, pronouncing them the heroines
of the day. He also cited a remarkable fact of historv, that his
grandfather, Jonah Sanford, Colonel of the 92nd Xew York Volun-
teers, his father Henry B., a Lieutenant in the same regiment
Co. F. and himself, a Captain of the 16th Regiment, an d^ three
brothers, were all in active ser\'ice in the late Relwllion at the
same time. After wishing the "Sanfords" louii life and pros-
perity he dosed his remarks and Rev. JL C. Stebhins, pastor of



826 THE THOMAS SAXFORD FAMILY

the Congregational Church, was introduced and as he too married
a "Sanford"' he thought the family a remarkable one, saying that
about all that he had of value in this world was his five daughters
who sprang from the Sanford family. ,

Calvin Lewis of Boston was called upon and made a few appro-
priate remarks and sang two songs as only "Calvin" could sing.
Henry Lane also made a few remarks on the San ford-Peck combi-
nation, two Sanford boys having married two Peck sisters and
raised families. A few remarks were also made by C. D. Lane,
after which three cheers were given for the Sanford family and
three for Blaine and Logan. The remainder of the day was spent
in social intercourse. The North Star Band of Cornwall dis-
coursed their finest music, adding much to the enjoyment of the
day. Among the antiquities exhibited was the large arm chair
in which Sarah, Benjamin Sanford 's wife, rode on her trip to
Cornwall from Connecticut in 1784. All pronounced the celebra-
tion a complete success.
