The Barber County Index, December 17, 1902.

Edward Sanford Dead.

Edward Sanford died at his home three miles west of town on Monday, December 15, 1902. He was attacked with pneumonia a little over a week ago and his condition at once became critical and after a few days of sickness there was no hope of recovery.

Funeral services were conducted at the Baptist church yesterday afternoon and interment was made in Highland cemetery. Elder R. H. Tanksley, pastor of the Christian church, conducted the services.

Edward Sanford was born at Boonville, Missouri, April 6, 1863 and died at Medicine Lodge, Kansas, December 15, 1902, aged 39 years, 8 months and 9 days.

He came to Barber county from Oklahoma last spring and moved on the Mawson farm west of this city. He was a citizen of great worth and won the friendship and esteem of all with whom he came in contact.

He leaves a wife and little girl about 5 years old.

The Index extends deepest sympathy to them in their distress.
