Obituary - Sanford, Catherine d.

The National Intelligencer, Friday, March 11, 1808
Died. In this city on Monday morning about half past five o'clock, after an illness of nine days, Mrs. Catherine Sanford, aged 66 years. For many years a much respected inhabitant of Alexandria. In the various relations in which she was called to act in society she justly acquired the love and esteem of all who knew her. Many who travel the round of time drop into the grave and are forgotten. But it is not so with her. Her afflicted children, her mourning relatives, her weeping friends, whilst they bow with humble submission to the Divine Will, will long deplore the bereavement they have sustained in her death. A friend who was for several years a witness of her course, who knew and prized her virtues, offers this humble tribute to her memory.
