      Elias and his wife, Almira, along with eight children traveled west from t heir home in Gustavus, Trumbull, OH. They arrived in Toledo in 1851 by la ke boat, unloaded their household goods and placed them in wagons for t he journey to the west of the city. Giles, the oldest son of eleven year s, retained vivid memories of their arrival. "Summit Street looked more l ike a river of mud in those days than it did like a city street," he recal led years later. "It was hard for the horses to drag our wagons down t he street, and worse when we reached the untraveled trail which is now Mon roe Street. The spring thaw was on and the old plank road through the bus iness section was in bad shape. Many of the planks were floating arou nd in the mud and water." The family settled along present-day Whitefo rd Center Road about two miles north of the state line. After Elias di ed in 1855, his widow maintained the MI farm and it eventually became t he property of the second son Delmar. When Giles purchased his forty acr es he built a house along Alexis Road opposite the end of Tremainsville Ro ad, a site now occupied by a used car lot. From here a path led to the c ow pasture on the north side of the farm. Present-day Burdette Street ext ends along the old farm lane. The widowed mother, Almira, kept house f or her son Giles until his marriage in 1879 to Mary Emma Bright, twenty-t wo years his junior.
