In June, 2000, the George Sanders family of Fairwater received a worn book of poems published by an Alto poet around 1900. The book was Hours of Pleasure. The poet was Aaron L. Sleyster. Included in the collection was a poem titled "Zilda's Dream," written in remembrance of one of Sleyster's early teachers, Zilda Harwood, a Fairwater native who died of diptheria on July 21, 1863, and was buried in the Fairwater cemetery.
