CA. BIO: J. H. Battle. History of Columbia and Montour Cos. in Pa. Chicago: A. Warner & Co, 1887. JOSEPH E. SANDS (deceased) (Mt. Pleasant Twp.) was born July 18, 1811 in Mifflin Twp, Columbia Co., Pa. His ancestors came from England, the pioneer of the name being JOHN SANDS, who was obliged to leave his native country on account of religious persecution. He settled in Berks Co, Pa, and from him are descended all of the name in this county. The father of our subject was JOHN, son of DANIEL, who was a son of the pioneer JOHN. JOSEPH E. when a lad was brought by his parents to Briarcreek Twp, Columbia Co, and durng his minority worked for ANDREW HUNLOCK, who carried on a woolen mill. While in his employ, he learned the business thoroughly, and in 1835 came to Greenwood Twp. That year he married ESTHER LUNDY, and 3 years later came to what is now Mordansville, and built a woolen mill, which is now operated by his son, C.L (CHARLES LUNDY SANDS). He carried on that business up to the time of his death, which occurred Feb.24, 1881, of apoplexy, at Philadelphia. He had visited the above city with his son CHARLES to buy goods, and while there died very suddenly, while making his purchases. He was buried with Masonic honors, of which fraternity he was an honored member, and his remains now repose in Orange Twp, in the McHenry Cemetary. In speaking of MR. SANDS, he can well be called a representative man in Columbia Co. In politics, he was a Republican though not a partisan. He was appointed the first postmaster at this place, and in 1875 was elected county commissioner, and served with credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. He was generous and liberal, and his hand was ever ready to contribute to the wants of the needy. He was a successful business man, and was always in the front when the general interests of the people were at stake. He reared a family of seven sons and one daughter all of whom married. Three of the sons served their country in the civil war, and Mr. SANDS, himself, went out with the militia when the Southern forces invaded the State in 1863. (Addendum: JOSEPH E. and ESTHER's children were: WILLIAM ELROY (RUTH ANNA ALE); HENRY (JENNIE BECK); THOMAS (MARY HELLER); CHARLES LUNDY (MARY ZEIGLER); JOSEPH (MARY TURNER); JAMES PARVIN ( SUSAN EVES); JOHN (ANGELINE CONNER); his twin ELIJAH, who died; ANNA (W.W. EVES), and SUSANNA, who died.
