Surname. 318 His surname was sometimes spelled Helme.

Residence, Cir 1786, Vermont. 318 Sands arrived in Alburg, Vermont, at the northern tip of Lake Champlain, probably between June of 1786 and August of 1788. Sands, a farmer, was still living in the Alburg area in 1820, although he subsequently moved across the state border to Franklin County in New York. He resided on 18 Jun 1786 in North Kingston, and in 1830 in Malone, Franklin County, New York.

Civic activities, 1792, Alburg, VT. 318 At the first organizational meeting of the town of Alburg in 1792 he was chosen as one of several petit jurors. New York lost political control of Vermont in 1777, and it was not until 1790 that it relinquished all its claims to Vermont. Alburg was located in what became Franklin County, Vermont, in 1797. The western part of that county, which included Alburg, became Grand Isle County in 1802.

Second Wife, After 1826. 318 Sands had no children with Jane Burdick whom he married after 1826.

Sands married Mary Sweet, daughter of Sylvester Sweet and Patrice Congdon, circa 1787 in Alburg Springs, Grand Isle County, Vermont. (Mary Sweet was born on 7 Nov 1765 in South Kingston, Rhode Island 319 and died on 20 Jan 1843 in Alburgh, Grand Isle, Vermont 319.)

Sands next married Jane Burdick after 1826.
