This article is written by Raymond Gaylord, the youngest of seven children who grew up in Munroe Falls. He is the great great grandson of Johnathan Gaylord Jr., a shipbuilder who walked from Stow Township to work in the Cleveland shipyards during the War of 1812, and the great grandson of Sylvester Gaylord.
The Gaylord family settled in Munroe Falls in 1809 and were among the charter members of the Stow Christian Church. Raymond was ordained in this church in 1944.
