Birth: 1832
Orange County
New York, USA
Death: Sep. 17, 1911
Orange County
New York, USA

Mrs. L. Adaline Ayres died Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, at her home, 36 Linden avenue.

Although she had suffered for several years with rheumatism, her last illness was of only two weeks' duration, the cause of death being an affection of the heart.

Mrs. Ayres was born near Cuddebackville in 1832, and was the daughter of Hannah Gumaer and Selah Gordon. In 1858 she married Jesse Ayres, who died in 1897. One son, George, [died] at the age of five years.

Two daughters survive: Nettie, wife of C. D. Van Inwegen, of Newark, N.J., and Anna Belle, wife of Charles Purdy, with whom she made her home, and one grandson, Earl J. Van Inwegen, of Newark, N.J. Both of her daughters cared for her during her last illness.

Mrs. Ayres had been a member of the First Congregational Church for many years. She was a great reader and her chief interest in life was her home, where she will be greatly missed.
