It sounds reasonable. Sandford's brother, Joseph, left Hemmigford, Canada and started a sawmill in Brayton Hollow, outside Chateaugay, NY. When the American squatters settled on undeveloped land in Hemmingford, it was all forested, they had to spend the first few years cutting trees and making Potash for a living. In a book about Hemmingford during that time, the Americans were all lauded as being superb "axmen", so it would make sense tht they could all claim to be Sawyeres.
