Thanks for helping me clear up this confusion. I find it interesting that 4 members, of one family, married into the 2 branches of my family. I would be interested in knowing any Gaylord family history from the period.

Hello again Larry,
I have just come across a little more information regarding the children of Joseph Gaylord 1624/1667 & Sarah Stanley 1649/1711...
I only had 5 children listed: Sarah; William; John who married Elizabeth Hickok; Joseph who married Mary Hickok;& Elizabeth who married Joseph Hickok.
The information I just got has more children listed. They are: Benjamin; Elizabeth; Mary; Abigail; Joanna; & Ruth who married Stephen Hickox. It looks like this would be your Ruth. There were no dates with this additional information. And the search goes on! Barbara in Arizona

Hi Larry and Barbara

I too have these Gaylords marrying Hickox, but haven't found if they are related to each other. I have assumed, but no documentation.
John's wife Elizabeth is daughter of Joseph and Mary (Carpenter) Hickox.
and Joseph's wife Mary's father was also named Joseph, but I cannot be sure they are the same Joseph.
Let me know if you find the link and I'll do the same.
I come down from

Walter Gaylord and Mary Stebbins
Joseph Gaylord and Sarah Stanley
Joseph Gaylord and Mary Hickox
Joseph Gaylord and Elizabeth Rich
Aaron Gaylord m. Katherine Cole
Lorena Gaylord and Lynde Phelps
Phebe Gaylord Phelps and Uriel Bradley
Lynde Phelps Bradley and Harriet E. Parker
Helen Phelps Bradley and Charles Sumner Cook
Raymond Wilson Cook and Florence Yale
Richard Bradley Cook and Jean Capps
Donald Phelps Cook and Diane Schweitzer

I descend through the Gaylord-Ellsworth line, to PA, then to Ohio, then to Madison Co., IN and eventually into Missouri. I wondered if you had any documentation or could tell me where I could find it, proving that the Connecticut line did migrate into Pennsylvania. I need documentation for the Colonial Dames. Any help appreciated.

Yes, thank you. I am always looking for more information. The Gaylord family is intertwined with mine, on several generations.

Suggest that you go to

Starting with William Gaylord, you can trace his offspring through the generations.

Surnames: Gaylord
I am looking for ancestors of my Grandfather, Emmett Ellsworth Gaylord, His parents are Bert Vern Gaylord and Harriet McCracken. He was born near Oakville Iowa, but I have been told that our ancestors come from missouri. Some of his siblings are: Elsie, Frank, and Rosie. I know Rosie married Harold Powell, and Frank's middle name is Martin, and that they had a sister who was born about 1917, and her name was lilli. I was told that she had to be put in a hospital setting, when she was young(maybe 8-10) around Davenport, and that she died there but I can't seem to find any further information to take my search further back. If any of this matches up with any of your information please email me at
