L. Sanford Southworth obituary

May 15, 1918 (Oneonta Daily Star)
Well Known Resident of Milford Center Passes Away

     Yesterday morning, shortly before 4 o’clock, at his residence, occurred the death of L. S. Southworth, best known perhaps as Sanford Southworth, who although born in Seward, Schoharie county, had resided in that neighborhood for about 49 years and was well known in this section. He had been in failing health for a long time. The funeral services will be held on Thursday at 2 o’clock. Rev. Mr. Silcox of the Milford Center Baptist church of which the deceased was a member will officiate and the interment will be in the neighborhood cemetery.
     Mr. Southworth was 68 years of age. He was twice married, his second wife being Mrs. E. W. Seeger, a sister of Mrs. M. L. Hull of this city, who also is well known in the city. To her as the only surviving relative much sympathy will be felt. Mr. Southworth was a man of excellent principles, of friendly genial nature and many prized his friendship and will miss him in the church and other associations.
