Surnames: Littlefield Ayer

Seeking information on my GGGM Blanche Littlefield Ayer

Birth Jan 1864 in Maine, USA; Death 1936 in Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA; Married Edwin Nathaniel Ayer (1857-1921) in 1888; children were Clyde, Mildred, Marion, Gladys.

Father was Perry (?) Littlefield, of Wells, Maine, USA (born abt 1838); mother was an Arathusa, maiden name unknown, born Maine, USA, 1841; died Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA, 1925; in addition to Blanche their children included Everett, Ida, Emma and Pauline.

This family mostly migrated from the Wells-Ogunquit area of Maine to the Lawrence, Massachusetts area (a large textile town at the time) by the 1880s. Father Perry (Percy?) presumably died and buried in Maine.

Surnames: Littlefield, Austin, Rust, Rusk, Snell, Alcock, Storer, Stevens, Neal, Hatch, Hill, Wardwell, Pyce, Cole,
I think Blanche has 2 different lines back to the immigrant Edmund Littlefield, through Edmund's sons, Francis Sr. and Francis Jr, as shown below. I don't have any information about Blanche Littlefield Ayer's descendants.

Wow, you just knocked my socks off. Maybe I need to leave the Ancient Order of the Hibernians and join the Mayflower Society... ;)

Also, Horace makes sense as her father's name. It was listed in the census as Parace and Parase (or at least transcribed that way by ancestry.com), and in one place as Perry.
