Who was Sanford in the case Dred Scott v. Sanford?

0

When Dred Scott lost, Chaffee arranged for ownership to be transferred from Irene to Taylor Blow (son Peter Blow), who emancipated the family in May 1857. Chaffee’s involvement in the transfer tends to support the idea that Sanford had no legal claim to the Scott family, and only had standing in Court by virtue of his status as executor.
