SANDS, John [1649-1712] -- American maritime merchant

Relationship to me: Ancestor (6GGFather)
SANDS family ODT

A sea-faring man, John set up a shipping business about 1696. About 1700 he brought the first seeds or saplings of locust trees from Virginia to Long Island. They proved so hardy and prolific that the name of the locality was changed from Buckram to Locust Valley, which name remains today. Many a sound New England wood fence was founded on the particularly dense and rot-resistant locust posts from trees descended from those introduced by John.  -30-
