"BLEW HIS HEAD OFF
Sylvester Faylor, 62, Owner of two farms in Brimfield, Keeps awful threat.
Sylvester Faylor, a prominent and well to do citizen of Brimfield township, living one fourth mile east of the Center, ended his life by suicide at noon yesterday, blowing almost his entire head off with a shot gun.
Just before noon Mr. faylor went to the home of George Kelso, who lives east of him, and asked for the loan of his shot gun, saying that he wanted to shoot a hawk and that his own gun could not be discharged. Mr Kelso, not thinking of anthing of the nature that was to follow, let him take the gun and two cartridges. Before going out to the barn Mr. Faylor asked his wife to hurry the dinner, stating that the boys would soon be home. She said she would do so and he left the house.
The boys reached home at noon and as dinner was ready the mother asked one of them to go after his father. The som complied and found the father in the field, just beyond the barn yard fence. He was lying on the ground, his head on a slight knoll. Between his legs was the shot gun. Near it was a piece of shingle used to discharge the weapon. The charge entered the head just underneath the chin, tearing away the face and most of the head. Not a trace of resemblance was left. The sight, as witnessed by the family and afterwards by scores of neighbors, was ghastly one in the extreme.
The boys had passed near the spot where the body was found and believe if it had been there when they camt to dinner they would have seen it.
Three or four weeks ago Mr. Faylor told Mr. Williams that he would kill himself.
His father, George Faylor, hanged himself in southeast Brimfield many years ago. Other tradedies are said to have terminated the lives of three others in the family.
Mr. Faylor was born in Brimfield and had spent all his life in the township, on various farms. He was reputed as a good citizen, industrious and well to do. He was the owner of two fine farms. Only a few months ago he bought Edw. Brobat's property at the Center. He had lived on his present farm over a year. The place was purchased from Mrs. Warren Sherman. His nearest neighbor is H. Q. Moulton, across the road.
Mr. Faylor was 62 years of age on the 10th of August. His wife was a Miss Ake. His mother's maiden name was Sperra. The wife and five sons survive. Clyde and Arthur are at home, Charles works on a farm and George works at Hartville. Frank is in the west but his residence is unknown.
Undertaker Herriff was called from Kent and cared for the body, preparing it for burial. The funeral will be held at the home at 10 a.m. Saturday, Rev. Andrew Willson officiating."

(Witness) HistoryCopied from page 527 of the Perrin History of Summit County

Basil Viers, the ancestor of the numerous families of that name who still live in various parts of the township, located near William Triplett’s place, west of Stephen Brewster. He was among the very first settlers, and is remembered only by the old gray-haired patriarchs of to-day. Just this side of the little log cabin in which Dan Haines lived, Wheeler Heniman located …… Adam Falor settled in the northern center, just east of South Main street, in the hollow not far from the rolling mill. He built and run a distillery, the first and, as far aw we are able to find, only one in the township. It was located where the old stone house stood, through which the Brewster Coal Railroad cut its way just after passing under the track of the N.Y.P. & O.R.R. Here the sturdy settlers came from all the country around to get the necessary material for raising barns and houses, as well as for running the hushing bee and other social gatherings. Her Adam and his wife Eve lived in peace, never dreaming of “temperance societies,” “crusaders” of Murphy pledges. They raised a family, many representatives of whom are still living in that neighborhood. Abram Falor, a son of Adam and Eve above mentioned, built a saw-mill on what is now known as Falor’s Run, where he did a good business for many years. Chester Judd was another early settler who came into this same section some time before the year 1829, though that is the time at which we find him located just beyond the Adam Falor place. Peter and Moses Osburn, brothers, also lived adjoining and near neighbors to Judd.

One of the first settlers at New Portage was Michael Dixon, who came there in 1814 or 1815. He lived there during the rise and fall of varying waves of prosperity that came upon this, the only town and capital of the “State of Coventry,” as this was wont to be called. He shared not only its prosperity but also its adversity for the remained long after its star had set and its prospects sunk into insignificance. At a later period Mr. Viers sought to revive its waning prospects by laying out an addition which was to grow and swallow up the old town and retrive its sinking fortunes. One lot was sold to Jacob Brown, after whom it was proposed to name the place Brownsville. But Fate did not smile upon the project, for but one house was built in the place which afterward for many years used as a match factory.
