Thomas G. Gaylord
Gaylord, Thomas G., New York, , ae. -. Mr. G. was a valuable citizen of Cincinnati. He was emphatically a self-made man. His fellow citizens regarded him as a gentleman of marked probity. As a business man, he was prompt, never allowing his paper to be protested; and he possessed a sagacious mind. He was a native of Utica, N.Y.; married at 22, and removed to Pittsburg, where he engaged in the queensware business with a small capital which he had accumulated. Thence he removed to Maysville, Ky., and subsequently to Portsmouth, O., where he laid the foundations of a handsome fortune in the manufacture of iron. About 12 years ago he removed to Cincinnati, where he has since remained. He was always actively engaged in business, and, when he died, was in New York upon business connected with his firm, T. G. Gaylord & Son. He was a very successful business man, and accumulated property estimated to be now worth $200,000. He left a widow and several children to mourn their bereavement.

William B. Glazier

Class of 1847 - WILLIAM BELCHER GLAZIER was born at Hallowell, Me., 29 June, 1827, of Franklin Glazier and Julia (Tarbox) Glazier his wife. Franklin Glazier was a printer and publisher; and, later in life, cashier of a bank at Hallowell. William Belcher Glazier graduated at Harvard 27 August, 1847, and returned to Hallowell, where he was shortly admitted to the bar, and began the practice of law. In 1854 he moved to Cincinnati, and continued to practice law there for a short time. Not being successful, he served as clerk to B.C. True, a Justice of the Peace, for two years. He was afterwards clerk to the Mayor of Cincinnati for two years, and subsequently deputy surveyor of the customs in the same city. On 1 January, 1863, he married Margaret Lowry, daughter of James and Margaret Lowry, and had children: Julia Mary, born 4 December, 1864; William Leonard, born 25 July, 1867; and Margaret Lowry, born 3 December, 1868. He had a great fondness for belles-lettres and considerable acquaintance with English literature. He published one volume of poems. His habit of drinking prevented his attaining the success to which his ability entitled him, and hastened his death, which occurred at Cincinnati, 25 October, 1870.

Mrs. Goldsmith

Suicide - A Married Woman Drinks Poison
Yesterday morning, a married woman named Mrs. Goldsmith, living at No. 399 George street, got up at about five o'clock, and, without saying a word to any of the inmates of the dwelling, took a large potion of arsenic, colored with indigo, from which she died about noon yesterday. At six o'clock, Dr. Thornton was called in, and expressed his opinion that the woman would die. The arsenic, it seems, had been purchased at a drug store about two weeks ago, and placed in the bathroom, near ther sleeping apartment, and had been used as a ratsbane. This the woman, for some cause, resorted to either in a moment of deep depression or partial insanity. The woman was thiry-seven years of age. Nothing definite is known in regard to domestic troubles. A story was told by the servant girl, that her eldest daughter had recently married, and was living in a very extravagant manner, drawing large sums of money from her parents; and that her husband had rebuked and quarreled with her about advancing any further money. From this Mrs. Goldsmith became so depressed that she resorted to the fatal drug to end her tribulations. Whether this be a true version or not, it is impossible to state. At the Coroner's inquest, held in the afteroon, evidence was elicited showing that her family affairs were of a pleasant nature, and that no cause could be assigned for the act of self murder; and the verdict was suicide while in a fit of temporary insanity.
