Wesley Sanford. Funeral services were to be held this afternoon for Wesley Sanford, 13 Jefferson Street, who died Thursday morning at his home of complications after an illness of two weeks. Born in Kingston, New York, Mr. Sanford resided in Jersey City for the past 14 [sic] years. He was a retired river boat captain. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Lillian Greely and Mrs. Violet Blodgett; a son, George Sanford; a sister, Mrs. Jennie Pullis, of Catskills, New York; two brothers, Robert and Willard Sanford, and nine grandchildren.
Notes: Wesley Howard Sanford (1863-1938) appears living in Jersey City, Hudson, New Jersey in the 1905 New Jersey census and all subsequent censuses. This would be 33 years. In the 1875 New York census he is living in Kingston, Ulster, New York. He has not been found in the 1880 or 1900 censuses yet, so he may have lived in Jersey City earlier.
