Sephronia [Sophronia] Sandford [or Sandiford] was born in July 1853, in Virginia. She met her husband-to-be Carr Bowers Beale at her cousin, Tom Parker's home where her mother and she were living at the time (about 5 miles from Branchville, VA). They were married 12 Sep 1877 at the residence of Andrew Lamberson in Margarettsville, Northampton County, NC. Like many people of her time, Saphronia could neither read nor write.

She & Carr had 3 children:
Carrie Romii (09 Mar 1879 - 14 Dec 1949)
Robert Harrison (09 Jun 1882 - 17 May 1957)
Nellie Belle ( 23 Apr 1890 - 29 Feb 1972).

Her death certificate indicates she was buried in Branchville, Virginia. No cemetery is mentioned but she may be beside her husband Carr Bowers Beale. His death certificate shows his burial in the Beale Cemetery outside Branchville, Virginia. No stones have been found there bearing their names but not all graves had stones.
