Birth: May 5, 1892
Lysander
Onondaga County
New York, USA
Death: Feb. 28, 1928
Caughdenoy
Oswego County
New York, USA

Brother of Burr Harlow Gaylord.

Died at a NY State Mental Institution in Caughdenoy, Oswego Co, NY. He was the son of Jehial Adelbert Gaylord and Emma (Cole).

It's believed that Romayne died of "consumption" or Tuberculosis. In the late 1800's, institutions were established by the industrial barons to treat the sick and poor in a better environment. It became a social stigma for sick poor people to try to stay at home when they could not financially care for themselves.
