SANFORD, Thaddeus, journalist, born in Connecticut in 1791 ; died in Mobile, Alabama, 30 April, 1867. He went to New York city in early life, and engaged in commercial pursuits until 1822, when he removed to Mobile, Alabama, and in 1828 became the editor and proprietor of the "Mobile Register." He continued to conduct that journal, with the exception of the period between 1837 and 1841, for twenty-six years. In 1833 he was elected president of the Bank of Mobile, and in 1853 he was appointed collector of the port by President Pierce, holding the office throughout Buchanan's administration. On the organization of the Confederate government he was reappointed, and subsequently, in addition, discharged the duties of " depositary" for the Confederate treasury. Mr. Sanford was intimately connected with the progress and prosperity of his adopted city for nearly half a century.
