    History 1928  [16
    According to his biography, "Akron had numbered Francis Gladwin among her citizens for thirty-one years when he passed away February 5, 1900, at the age of sixty-six. He was a native of Manchester, England, born July 14, 1834, and in early life became a stone and wood carver but for some years prior to his demise was unable to follow his calling. His parents were George and Elizabeth Gilbert Gladwin. His father was also a stone carver, doing beautiful stone work on cathedrals and other notable buildings in England. It was natural, therefore, that Francis Gladwin should turn his attention in the same direction. He acquired his education in Stokeupon-Trent in England and his natural skill and ingenuity led him to become a sculptor and wood carver of much more than ordinary ability. He did a large amount of wood carving for many beautiful homes all over Ohio, including some of the finest residences in Akron, Elyria and Warren. He was likewise engaged in work of similar character on leading churches and public buildings. He was the head of one of the pioneer families of Akron, coming here when the city was a small town and passing away before the period of its phenomenal growth. About 1880 he erected the residence in which his family has since continuously lived.

    It was in Stoke-upon-Trent, in Staffordshire, England, that Mr. Gladwin was united in marriage to Miss Sarah Cooper, who was born in 1837 and died February 20, 1912. She was a daughter of Stephen and Jane Brooks Cooper and her father was a resident of both England and Scotland. To Mr. and Mrs. Gladwin were born the following children: Mary Elizabeth; Anna Cooper; Sarah Jane; Ellen Rachel; Neonetta, who has been principal of Grace school for twenty-one years; Francis, who married Arthur Herbert Hunsicker; and Stephen Cooper, who married Ada Copeland and afterward Gertrude Allen Hillbish.
