I have Ayres from Lamar County in Alabama which is just a few counties to the East. My gg grandfather was James M(Marshall) Ayres. I know he is not the James M Ayres in your list but many of the names are similar. Do you have any more information on these Ayres such as date and place of birth?

Sorry but that's all the info I have. I am trying to determine if the James W. might possibly be my great grandfather. We have a postcard that indicates he had a sister Carolina Amanda. The ages on these two census fit their dates of birth, James W., born in 1860, and Carolina Amanda born in 1852.

the Ayres family originate in Somerset. In particular, there are several gravestones of Ayres' in the graveyard of the church in the tiny village of Wooton Courtney.

There must be a link but I don't know what it is..My James M Ayres' father was Authur (born apx. 1798) and his brothers were William Albert born 1822 Holland Middleton 1824 Elbert 1837 John H 1843 Sisters were Polly Ann 1824 Sarlene 1826 Lilet 1841 Authur's father is unknown but believed to be Moses Authur came from GA and died apx. 1860 in Lamar County Alabama. My gg grandfather James Marshall stayed in Lamar County but many of his brothers and maybe sisters went west. Some to Texas and I think Elbert went to Mo.
