Biography of Silas H. Sanford
St Lawrence County, NY Biographies

Sanford, Silas H., Hopkinton, was born March 9, 1849, a son of Jonah Sanford (see biography of C. K. Sanford). His birthplace was the farm on the old turnpike in the town of Hopkinton, where his father settled soon after his marriage. He was educated in the common schools and the Lawrenceville Academy, and worked with his father on the farm until the latter's death, October 18, 1886, when he fell heir to considerable property, including the old homestead of 320 acres, where our subject at present resides. By careful management and good business tact and sagacity, he has added largely to his property. Recently he bought 174 acres adjoining his farm, known as the Judge Sanford homestead. His dairy consists of upwards of eighty cows, being the largest in the town. He is now erecting a butter factory. Mr. Sanford is a genial, social man; knows every one within a radius of several miles of his home, and is respected and liked by all. In politics he is an ardent Republican and has held the office of justice of the peace several years. He is a member of Amber Lodge No. 375, F. and A. M.
