I am a firm believer in the free sharing of information, and to that
end intend to put all of my personal research, and any research that others may
be willing to contribute, here for all to use. There are a number of projects
that I have undertaken. Some of these are related to me, and some are not. If
you have any information that would serve to expand, clarify, or enhance what I
have compiled here, I will be happy to include it.
Members of my family have been doing genealogical
research for generations. Most of what is here on my personal lines are
gleanings from the work that has gone before. It is imperfect. As I proceed
with this project I am trying to add source information, but in too many cases
it is not known. At this time, the majority of the Sanford information is
obtained from "Thomas Sanford ..." by Carlton Sanford, 1911-- if a
source is not mentioned, this is probably where it came from.
Please note: For my own convenience, I have added
characters to the title-suffix field of many entries: asterisk (*) for my direct
ancestors, caret (^) for my wife's ancestors, and a tilde(~) for highly questionable,
unverified, albeit plausible entries. For individuals whose surname is unknown I
have generally entered it as [married-name]. I have added superscripts with the
generation number to some given names to the text in an attempt to keep the story
- Robert Dickman
- Born ca. 1825, he emigrated to Delaware County, New York from Hawick,
Scotland ca. 1840. He is presently our dead end for the surname.
- This site is dedicated to the memory of
Warren Calvin Trott, whose time ran out
before he could finish his project. Oral tradition said that there were Native
Americans and Mayflower Pilgrims in his past, but he never found them. Perhaps
you can help us finish his project, or at least benefit from what has been
- Thomas Sanford
- "The Emigrant to New England; Ancestry, Life and Descendants; 1632-4"
was published by Carlton Sanford in 1911. It is a massive body of work. Thomas1 was a great grandson of Richard. I have entered some
of the basic information, as well as my lineage and the lines of some cousins I
have met on line and elsewhere.
- Richard Sanford
- Is the oldest reliably known ancestor of Thomas1
Sanford according to the researcher who did the work in England for Carlton
early in the 1900's. I consider the arguments given there to be persuasive, and
do not intend to post beyond that point without more evidence.
Sanford and Huldah Hull
- Are among the descendents of Thomas Sanford that have been entered. One of
our projects is to collect all known descendents of this couple. Please feel
free to contribute your information to this project.
- Other Pioneer Sanfords
- Are covered to some degree in a number of Appendices to Carleton's work.
These are not indexed in print, and are therefore difficult to use in hard copy.
As time permits, I will be adding them to the surname index on this site.

On the subject of links to this site:
If you're putting a live link to these pages somewhere out there, please
keep the following in mind:
I expect to be moving things around quite a bit as the project progresses, but
the pages referenced from this page should remain fairly stable (so links to
http://www.rootsweb.com/~softbear/sanford.html should continue to work, but a
link to William Sanford's will might break.)
