Family Bible of Elijah GAYLORD
  died in Syracuse 04 May, 1891  aged 92
To Jenney Eliza JOSLIN 312 Geddes St
A present from her Grandfather, E. GAYLORD
(Jane was named after his first & his last wife - Eliza & Jane)

 Rev. Miles GAYLORD's sons, Elijah Hull GAYLORD & his brother Albert & his cousin David GAYLORD never had a musical instruction, but it was natural to them to play any instrument. E HULL taught his son Albert called Al the science of music & that was all the help he ever had
& became a fine band master in Syracuse & NYC.
  Albert was an expert jeweler.  In his young days a man from NYC was told to take his valuable gold watch that noone could make run, to Mr GAYLORD.  He did so & Albert, see nothing ailed the watch so he took a lodestone & drew out electricity & the watch ran alright.
  David GAYLORD played the drum & fife in the CIvil War & at home played the lute, mandolin, & violin.
  The Civil War ruined all the bright prospects of all the grandchildren of Rev. Elijah GAYLORD.
  Rev Miles GAYLORD was a retired minister & lived in Pulaski when I remember him.
  He was in the northern district conference.
