“Captain Andrew J. Sandsbury died at his home on Dover Street yesterday morning, after a protracted illness. He was a man of sterling qualities, and of old school type. His life was almost wholly on the sea, many years of it spent in the whaling service. For 21 years he was on the South Shoal Lightship, nine of them as mate under Captain Thomas James and twelve years as master. On leaving the ship he was appointed keeper of Brant Point light, where he remained for a few years, until failing health compelled his retirement. Deceased was a member of the local Odd Fellows and Masonic organizations. He leaves a widow and a daughter.”
