Sanford, Zeph (30 JUL 1866 - 15 APR 1907)

Died, Monday morning, April 15, 1907, in the Wisconsin Central depot at Owen, Clark County, Wis., Zeph Sanford of this city, aged 39 years.

For the past year Mr. Sanford had been an invalid from consumption, and had gone to Eau Claire last week for Christian Science treatment. Mrs. Sanford had been hastily called there to accompany him home, and it was shortly after their arrival at Owen, while waiting for the Greenwood train, that without any apparent indication of immediate death he quietly passed away.

Undertaker Geo. W. Bishop brought the remains home and word was sent to relatives of the deceased. The funeral will be held at two o’clock Thursday, at the M.E. Church, Rev. J.J. Robinson officiating, assisted by Rev. W.T. Hendren.

The deceased, who was a native of Greenwood, Wis., was married to Miss Alice Langley of this city in 1895, and to them four children were born, three of who survive. Two brothers, Dell of Stevens Point and Abraham of Spirit Falls, and two sisters, Mrs. L. Dimler of Greenwood and Mrs. John Young of Great Falls, Mont., are living. While making his home here Mr. Sanford, who was a lumberman, was away much of the time. He was a member of the Maccabee and E.F.U. lodges and a highly respected citizen. The sincere sympathy of the community is with the bereaved in their time of sorrow.
