Show Family Line Edward Sanford >> Susan Sanford >> John Sisson >> Apphia Sisson >> George Franklin >> Frances Franklin >> Mark Dameron
Edward Sanford was born about 1750 in Virginia, most likely Westmoreland county. His parents were Edward Sanford and Catherine Pope. Edward Sanford, Sr. was one of the signers of the Leedstown Resolves, a resolution in defiance of the Stamp Act written by Richard Henry Lee. Lee went on to be one of the co-authors of the Declaration of Independence. Edward's mother was from the same Pope family that sold the land to John Washington where he built Wakefield Plantation, birthplace of President George Washington.

Edward Sanford, Jr. took the oath as an Ensign in the Westmoreland county Militia in November of 1775. It appears that after his death Edward's descendent's attempted to claim that a Revolutionary War pension was due their family under acts of congress in 1818 and 1820. Their claim was denied based based on the family's wealth.

Edward married on November 24th, 1787 to Patty Yeatman. They had at least one daughter, Susan Wright Sanford, born about 1801.

The 1810 census in Westmoreland county listed one Edward Sanford as the the head of a family that appeared to be a match. Household residents were; one male over 45, one female 16-25 and one female over 45. In addition eight slaves were listed.

Many unsourced claims state the Edward Sanford died in 1814.
