Pedigree of a Medford Tree.
Mrs. Ellen M. Gill rooted a cutting from a willow tree growing on the Hayes estate at Lexington. She gave it to Mr. C. N. Jones, who in 1891 planted it on the Washington School grounds. It has grown to the sizable tree now to be seen at the east side of the schoolhouse. The Lexington tree from which ‘Mother Gill’ got the cutting was grown from a similar cutting taken from a willow at Washington's Mount Vernon estate.
