Hello, Avis I am one of Joel Sanford's grgrdaughters.My grandfather was Heman Lowell, the youngest of his children. I am interested in knowing more about Joseph.I thought his name was Joseph Sylvester b.9 Apr 1833 in Jackson, co. Mo. Joel was married to Louisa Young and they had 4 children. Chancellor Mary Jane Watson Joseph Sylvester he married Elizabeth (Betsey) Williams,4 ch Louisa Rhoda Frances Luke James Ransford Devine he married Alice Rice and they had 12 children Marcus Louisa A Elisha c Philetus Timothy Ransford Devine Charles Ramond Rebach(Rebecca)(Becky)Coredah Polly Ann (Minnie) Almena clarica Lyman Lenard Bessie Stonesypher Heman Lowell
I am not sure but Joel's middle name might have Lloyd.
If you have any information of the Sanford family I would love to have it. Julia
