   WILLIAM1 GAYLORD was one of the one hundred and forty persons who embarked at Plymouth, England, on the "Mary and John" on March 20, 1630, and landed May 30 at Mattapan, or Dorchester, Mass. He was accompanied by a brother John who is supposed to have returned to England. He was one of the first deacons of the Dorchester church; with Deacon Samuel Rockwell signed the first Dorchester land grants, 1633. In 1635 he became a member of a party which journeyed to the Connecticut valley and settled in what is now Windsor, Conn. Here he spent the remainder of his life, prominent as a deacon, in the church, and holding many local offices. He died at Windsor July 20, 1673, aged 88 years, and his wife died June 20, 1657.

   SAMUEL4 GAYLORD (Eleazer,3 Walter,2 William1), born in Windsor, Conn., March 9, 1697, married Feb. 9, 1719, in Middletown, Conn., Margaret Southmayd. He was admitted an inhabitant at Middletown, Jan. 11, 1719. His house is the oldest standing in Middletown. He was a mariner with his father-in-law, Capt. Southmayd, in the West India trade. He died May 17, 1726, and his wife married second Sept. 30, 1730, Seth Wetmore, and died Nov. 6, 1730. The children of Samuel' and Margaret (Southmayd) Gaylord were:

He served as lieutenant and captain, 1755-60, in the French and Indian wars. He died Aug. 17, 1792, and his wife died Oct. 7, 1806. The children of Samuel5 and Margaret (Clark) Gaylord were:

Return Meigs in 1775, and as a carpenter on the frigate Trumbull, under David Saltonstall, commander, Dec. 23, 1776, to Dec. 23, 1777. In 1808, he with his wife Patty or Elizabeth




(Goodwin) and their family started from Middletown, Conn., with ox teams, and travelling overland through the unbroken forests of the west arrived in the same year in what is now known as Stow Township, Summit Co., O. Here Jonathan and his brother Samuel purchased homesteads of Joshua Stow, who had been commissary of the Conn. Land Co., and in partnership with Jabez Stocking, owned ten thousand acres. Seeing in the surrounding country that which would eventually be valuable land, he located on lots 15 and 16, and this property has ever since remained in the Gaylord family. At the time of his settlement there was not a particle of clearing on the lots he had selected. After clearing a place large enough, he erected a rude log cabin, and in this manner lived through the early history of Stow Township, becoming more or less identified with its rise and progress. At the time of his death in June, 1868, his property was divided between his three sons, Jonathan, William and Thomas. The latter, being the youngest, received the home place. The children of Jonathan6 and Elizabeth (Goodwin) Gaylord were: 1 Peggy7 Gaylord, bapt, May 8, 1774; m. 1796 William Stow

   A distinguished group of historians and writers from the United Sates and Canada were invited by Mr. Ralph Budd, the president of the Great Northern railroad, to make a pilgrimage into the Northwest in July of this year. One of the principal objects of the expedition was to do honor to certain early explorers who rendered valuable services in opening the Northwest to civilization. The tour was called the Upper Missouri Historical Expedition and is the most important enterprise of its character ever attempted. This railroad company has set out to build substantial monuments at the important points along its line. A monument to David Thompson, astronomer and geographer, was unveiled at Verendrye, North Dakota, where he took important observation in 1784. A congress of Indians was held at the site of old Fort Union, N. D., at which were representatives of eight Indian tribes. Sunday, July 19th, a trip was made to the battlefields, near Havre, Montana, where Chief Joseph made his last stand. A shaft was erected at Meriwether in honor of Meriwether Lewis at a point near the head of the Maries river. The most important event was the unveiling of a statue to John F. Stevens, discoverer of Maries Pass, at the summit of the Rocky Mountains. Mr. Stevens, whose engineering achievements in the Northwest give him an honored place among the makers of history in that region, was present at the unveiling. At each unveiling the deed to the land upon which the monument was placed was given by the railroad to the state.

   The climax of the expedition was the exploration of Glacier Park which is quite beyond description in its beauty and grandeur. At a meeting held at Two Medicine Chalet, in the park, a permanent organization was formed with General Hugh Scot, president, Ralph Budd, honorary president, Pierce Butler and Lawrence Abbott, vice presidents, Agnes Laut, secretary. Mr. Budd announced a program of annual expeditions covering several years. Nebraska was represented by Mrs. Clarence S. Paine, secretary of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association and librarian of the Nebraska State Historical Society.
