When Maxwell Thomas Sylvester was born on July 26, his coming into the world has a little extra spark of something special for his family.
The infant is a third generation birth at the hospital, as his father Patrick Sylvester and grandfather Francis Ralph Sylvester, were also born at Mount Auburn.
Patrick was born there March 26, 1982, and Francis was born on Jan. 1, 1951.
Patrick and his wife, Katelyn Sylvester, live in Medford, while Francis lives in Reading.
