  • Notes 
    • SOURCE: Medway Biographies & Genealogies by Jameson

      David Sanford (5-418) was a graduate of Yale, Class of 1755; studied theology with Dr. Bellany, was ordained and installed 14 Apr 1773 as pastor of the Second Church of Christ in Medway, Massachusetts where he was pastor for thirty-seven years.
      "He was chaplain of Col. Lemuel Robinson's regiment and took a leading part in every measure adopted for vigorous defence." (Source: Connecticut Men in Revolution). In 1779, he was a delegate to the convention for framing a constitution of the state of Massachusetts. He was an eloquent preacher, a devoted pastor, a kind-hearted and loveable man. A monument was erected to his memory by his surviving people in 1860, but his memory will long outlive his monument.

      The record of the family of Rev. David and his son Philo is taken from a register of Rev. David and the bible of Philo.
