Sandford was early attracted to premillennialism, the Higher Life movement, and divine healing- and in the 1890s, he created a communal society in coastal Maine whose members lived on faith rather than being gainfully employed. Considered by former members and many neighbors to be a crank and an autocrat who insisted on unquestioning loyalty, Sandford-who had identified himself with the biblical Elijah and David-was convicted of manslaughter in 1911 and served seven years in a federal penitentiary.

His absence retarded the growth of his small sect- but it survived, in attenuated form, into the twenty-first century.
