Family tradition is that Sanford was buried here as per his Granddaughter Rhoda Ardina (Stephenson) Liles who attended the funeral and related this event to me. No marker has ever been found but descendants may have added a civil war memorial to the cemetery in his honor.

Sanford was wounded in the Civil War in 1862 and died from the wound 45 years and 7 children later. He was shot in the chest and the wound drained for the rest of his life causing his death from infection after a doctor attended the wound at his home near Lula. Ardina Liles remembered Sanford changing the dressing every day when she was a child.

No photograph of Sanford is known to exist.
