The information I wrote about in the search page was given to me by my Mother-in-law.I do not have any written information of the family relationship pior to 1910--other than some photos of General and Annie made in the late 1800's or early 1900's .
I do have some clues about the family. I found a census with James and Annie's family in 1910. The census says he was born in Tenn. 1865, she was born in Ga. 1872.
It allows me to see the development of their family. Ten children in all. There is a boy born 1892--- that lived with them and later with a Davenport family---named George W. Ayres-- I think he--- perhapes--- worked on their farm. This is "maybe" a young brother or the oldest child. There is a relationship with a Davenports that lived in Cobb county in 1910, whether it is by blood or a business one I can't define yet.
The oldest daughter Lizzie, was very sick when she was 2 years old, this left her mentially retarted. I found James, Lizzie and a younger son named Jim living with George, his wife May and their family in Marietta in 1930.
Annie had passed by this time (1925).
Jim was killed in W.W. 11. We "think" in the invasion of Normandy, France. He was brought back by the family and is buried in The Marietta Memorial Cemetary. I do have good information on the rest of the family but nothing about James and Annie's history other than what I've told you.

Three of the Ayres children migrated to Tenn and Va. on reaching adulthood. The others remained in the same general area of Georgia. I would appreciate any information about this family that I can get---I am trying to leave my children a history of their "By-Gone-Family".
The Ayres have been a good, God fearing, hard working American Family that deserves a well remember history.
Thank you for your intrest.
