Looking for info on AYERS siblings who came to Brazos Co., Texas with their mother after her husband was killed in the Civil War. I believe she came with some inlaws, possibly James Ayers, who would have been a brother to her husband.
1-Thomas Gates AYERS b 1 Jan 1857, Litchfield, Illinois, married Gertrude PLETZER b 1870 Essen Germany
2-Warren J Ayers b Apr 1869, Missouri, married Mary
3-William (Billy) Ayers
4-Ellen Ayers (married Knight or Knighton?)
The above had a 1st cousin named Douglas Ayers (who also came to Brazos Co) b 1860/61 in Missouri, married Wilhelmina (Minnie) Pletzer.
Some of the above lived in both Brazos and Grimes Co. There was also a close association with WILSON family from that area.
