Sarah (Sanderson) Bedell

Sarah (Sanderson) Bedell

Sarah Sanderson was born in Mar 1827 daughter of John and Margaret (Whitfield) Sanderson. Early censuses show Sarah born in Massachusetts, however later censuses show her born in NY. Sarah married Abram Bedell, son of William Bedell and Hannah Bradbury. Abram was born in 1819 in New York. He was a glue manufacturer. We imagine when John Sanderson died in 1854, Sarah and Abram inherited or purchased the glue factory from the estate.

In the 1870 census the Bedell property was worth $85,000, quite a large amount for that time. Abram died on 12 Feb 1890 at the age of 71 in Athens. Sarah died in 1910 at the age of 83. They was buried at the Athens Rural Cemetery in Athens, Greene, New York .

Sarah Sanderson and Abram Bedell had the following children:

  • Mary Bedell was born in Jun 1855 in New York. She was a spinster. She died in 1917 at the age of 62. She was buried at the Athens Rural Cemetery
  • Bradbury Bedell, named after his maternal grandmother, was born on 8 Feb 1856 in Athens, Greene, New York.
  • Margaret Sanderson Bedell was born on 21 Dec 1861 in Athens. She was also a spinster and in her later years traveled to Europe several times. She died at her home suddenly in 1932 at the age of 71 in Catskill, Greene, New York. She was buried at the Athens Rural Cemetery in Athens alongside her parents and sister.
