Marriage & Children
Paul perhaps md. twice. His first wife was supposedly Maria Van Zandt. This may be erroneous because the source is the death certificate of his son Charles who was going by the name of George H. Sanford at the time of his death. The source for Charles / George's mother's maiden name would have been his wife. It could be that she had no reason to know the maiden name, or the maiden name could have been as bogus as the name George H. Sanford which Charles was using.
