Gaylord, George W. (1819 - 13 JAN 1922)

George W. Gaylord, an old resident of Rockland, Monroe Co., Wis., well known in Humbird, Clark County and vicinity, died last Friday afternoon at the more than ripe old age of 102 years. He was born in Perrysville, Cattaraugus Co., N.Y., and after coming west, was married to Hester Ann Marcy, Jan. 17, 1848, at Willow Springs, LaFayette Co., Wis. To this union were born eleven children, of whom nine are living, Mrs. Frank Creviston being one of the surviving daughters. The aged wife died nearly a year ago at the age of 89 years.

The family moved from Mineral Point to Rockland fifty-three years ago, where he spent most of his time, although excepting the past few years he was a frequent visitor to his daughters' and grandsons' homes here. He made his son's, J. A. Gaylord, his home for a number of years, and it was there he quietly passed away. Mr. Gaylord served three years in the Civil War, being honorably discharge at its close. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the M. E. Church at Rockland, and a large congregation was present to show their last respects to their old friend and neighbor. The remains were laid at rest beside those of his father, a son, and the aged wife.
