• SANDS, Comfort [1748-1834] – American merchant SAND412 1C5
Sands Point, Long Island, NY, is named for him.
Comfort Sands (1748-1843) lived far longer than most people of his time and had an illustrious carreer like his brother, the Colonel [John IV, 1737-1811]. ... A substantial businessman, he was a founding director of the Bank of New York in 1784. Comfort was 17 when he was part of a group that burned 10 bales of papers brought over from London. Four years later, he joined an association that vowed not to import goods from Great Britain until the repeal of the Tea Act and the Act imposing duties on glass and paint. In 1774, he was appointed by Congress to be a member of the Committee of 60, to carry out the non-importation resolution. He was subsequently elected a member of the Provincial Congress and served on the Committee of Safety. Although he stayed away from Long Island to avoid capture during the war, he supported the Revolution by serving on various provisional bodies. He also aided the cause [by] using merchant ships that he owned, and lost one vessal to the British that had a cargo worth £10,000. He later accepted an appointment as auditor general of the State of New York, a position he held until his resignation in 1782. [Kent, Joan Gay; Discovering Sands Point; 2000, ISBN 0-9705843-0-X]

About the year 1796, when America was at war for a few weeks with the French Consulate, Joseph Sands was supercargo on an American vessel when the ship was captured by the French and Joseph was taken prisoner. He was incarcerated in the Conciergerie. The Governor of the prison was an Austrian Major, Mathias Kampfel, whose daughter Maria Theresa, was an attractive girl of fifteen. Joseph promptly fell in love with her. After his release, they were married in Paris in 1801 by Tallyrand, Bishop of Autun. A fellow prisoner was John Vanderlyn, 1775-1852, American artist, b. Kingston, NY, studying in Paris at the time. From the back of a portrait of Joseph Sands is the following:
This crayon [pencil] portrait of Joseph Sands, son of ¤Comfort Sands, was drawn by [John Vanderlyn] in Paris in 1797, out of gratitude, Joseph Sands having paid the artist's debts and procured his release from a French prison. Joseph Sands left this portrait to his daughter Mary, wife of Francis Griffin. She gave it to Joseph Sands, eldest son of her brother, Charles Edwin Sands of Annandale, Dutchess Co, NY, with the express wish that it descend in the male line of Charles E. Sands' family.
