Obit / Eulogy of Sarah and Strother Sanford
Obituary in Tipton Daily Tribune 3 Apr 1926, p8.

MR. SANFORD DIED 18 HOURS AFTER SARAH, AND THEY HAD A DOUBLE FUNERAL

Sarah Elizabeth (Shuck) Sanford was born March 21, 1845 inShelby
County Kentucky. She grew to womanhood in her native state andwas
married to John Peters of the same community. About 1857 twolittle
girls were born in this home - Sarah M. and Martha A. Theirfather
(Mr. Peters) died in 1866, leaving his young wife and the twolittle
girls.
In July 1869 she married Strother Sanford, he being of the same
community and was born November 7, 1843. They with the twochildren
left Kentucky the same year of their marriage coming to Indiana
settling in Prairie Township, Tipton County. This country was
comparatively new at that time, but the pioneers were people of
vision. They went to work to bring to pass just what we seetoday;
the modern home taking the place of 'the cabin in theclearing,'
instead of marsh and bog we have fertile fields and greenpastures,
and our splendid roads in place of the 'corduroy.' This allmeans
some one sacrificed and some one served - our young people willnever
understand what it cost to give to them these splendidprivileges.
They lived here until 1889 then moved to Missouri, living thereand
in Arkansas until ten years ago when they returned to theirformer
home in Indiana. The little girls they brought with them from
Kentucky grew up here and married in the county. Sarah M.married
Joseph Pumphrey (now deceased). Martha A. married Irvin Stoops,both
are now living and lived near their aged parents and gave themthe
best of care until death came to this father and mother withina few
hours of each other - not separated long - their funerals atthe same
hour.
Nine children were given Mr. & Mrs. Sanford. David H., JosephW., and
Mrs. Miranda C. Hamilton preceded the parents to the grave. The
living ones are Mrs. Susie A. Scercy of St. Joseph, Mo., JesseJ.
Sanford of Como, Mo., Mary L White of North Chicago, Ill.,Lillie B.
Bray of Warrensburg, Mo., and Daisy P. McDowel of Marmaduk, Ark.
Mr. & Mrs. Sanford have been affiliated with the church most oftheir
lives having united with the Baptist Church while living inKentucky.
When they came to this community there was a band of worshipersat
the Whites Schoolhouse. They took their place with them. Thisfinally
became the Normanda Church. Later they removed their names toLiberty
Baptist Church where it still remains.
For nearly fifty-seven years these two have walked life'spathway
together, sharing alike their sorrows and their joys. Sicknesscame -
he has been almost helpless for near two years. She was soanxious
about him, so concerned, she never thought of her self. Lovenever
thinks of self and as they sat in the twilight or evening timeof
life, the shadows lengthening to the eastward, how they desiredthat
they might just pass through the portals of death - together -as
then the neither one would be left alone in the coming night.And for
days the children have watched with tearful eyes and anxioushearts -
knowing the destroyer was doing his work.
'They were dying - sure and slow.' And on Friday, April 2nd,1926,
the mother said, 'I can't wait, I must go, ' and passed throughthe
Morning Gate into 'The city four square,' after a journey hereof 81
years, 7 months, 11 days. He lingered a little while on thebrink of
the river just as though he might wave one more good by, whenhe to
stepped into the ferry man's boat, and went to be with her,that only
preceded him a few hours. Thus on Saturday at three o'clockApril 3,
1926 he closed his life's journey of 82 years, 4 months, and 26days.
What a joy that the separation was so short a time and thereunion is
forever. Instead of being surrounded by weeping children andfriend,
they were greeted by the hosts of Heaven. What a change, what ahappy
chance for the dear people who have suffered so much before,now they
have been given beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,the
garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
Besides their children they have 40 grandchildren and 51
great-grandchildren and many friends.
While these children are glad their parent's desire wasgranted, they
are grieved at such a loss. The old home all gone, and in theirgrief
they cry aloud, but the only answer is the echo of theirwailing cry
- from the voiceless lips of the dead there comes no sound.
But, Hope sees a star and listening love can hear the rustle ofa
wing.
For -
There is a land far away
'Mid the stars I am told
Where they know not the sorrows of time:
Where rivers of pleasure unceasingly roal
And life is a treasure sublime:
'Tis the Land of our God, 'tis the home of the soul
Where the way-worn traveler reaches his goal
On the ever green mountain of life.
