Ancestors of Silas Ayers and Mary Byram Ayers: Including the Alden, Ayers and Byram Families
Some few years ago I was prompted to start collecting what information was obtainable in regard to the history of the Ayers family, and with but a few meager facts to start with the search was begun, and by hunting through histories, and genealogical works, and corresponding with some of the older members, a complete record was finally obtained, and as this record is equally useful to several hundred descendants of Silas Ayers and his wife, many of whom have not the time nor opportunity to trace out their history, this book is published with the hope that it may inspire pride in our noble line of ancestors, and create new interest in our respective family histories. -- Taken from the preface by Charles H. Ayers.
