H.E. SANFORD DIES AFTER LONG ILLNESS

Mr. H. E. Sanford died at the family home Tuesday after an illness of some duration from infirmaties incident to age. He was 77 years old and had been declining for some months and latterly it was seen that his passing beyond would occur.

Mr. Sanford was born at Wells, Appinoose County, Iowa, March 24, 1859. At the age of three years he crossed the plains with his parents, and his oldest living sister, now nearing ninety, says she remembers when the little fellow rode his stick horse on the trek until tired and then (and then only) sought the ease of riding in the wagon. He married Janette Brown at Springville, March 7, 1888. All the children from that marriage but two survive him. Mr. Sanford was a man of most excellent character, kind, considerate, careful, prudent and by hard work and forethought had one of the best farms in the region. As age came on, he traded this farm to his son Dewey for a small place in which he could live for his remaining days. His manner was so mild and so engaging that he had a number of true friends who respected his worth. He lived for a while in Springville moving from there to Hanksville where he lived for a number of years engaged in the cattle business, which he followed for twenty five years. He was a pioneer in that region and many of the livestock there now descend from the herds he took in. In 1911 he moved to Delta.
