From "Fairfax County Virginia Death Register 1853-1896" by Frain and Hiatt:
SAGAR, Wm. white male, d. 5 Jul 77-5-0, Fairfax, 77-5-0, Informant: A. J. Sagar, son, South Dist., Bureau of Vital Statistics: 1877:67
You would have to look at the original entry in the Death Register to know if the Clerk made an error in recording or the transcriber.
The Fairfax Historial Newspaper Index shows the earliest mention of Sagar in 1889. There are numerous articles about A. J. Sagar's work. There is also:
Fairfax Herald 8/3/1900 03 Sagar A.J. Obit. 69 years old
Be aware that earlier newspaper obituaries were usually very short, often just one line that mentioned the person died. They were not detailed as today's obituaries are.
