from the 1976 Hendricks County history (page 176):

Eugene Oliver Ayers and his twin sister, Cora, were born on February 21, 1866, near Danvile. Their parents were James and Margaret (Long) Ayers. Other children in the family were Naomi Elizabeth (Duncan), Ella (Magee), Marcella (Van Note), Claudia (Sheets) and William.

Cora Ayers married Minton Mitchell, and Eugene Ayers married Mary Lucy Gentry, known as Lucy. Gene and Lucy Ayers lived in Maplewood, Indiana, for several years, and their three children, Josephine, Naomi and Hildon, were born there. During this period, and for many years after moving to Jamestown, Gene drove a huckster wagon and was a familiar figure over the countryside north and west of Danville. Gene and Lucy and their children moved to Jamestown shortly after Hildon Ayers was born in 1906.

Josephine Ayers married George Huber. They lived in Lizton, where George was President of the State Bank of Lizton until his death in 1962. Their daughter, Georganna, married Robert Julius, and they now live in Flora, Indiana. Their children are Cynthia Yeakley, who has two children, and Robert Julius Jr, now a college student.

Naomi Ayers married Paul Jeffries. Their children are James and Jerome Jeffries. James now lives near Delphi, Indiana, and has three children, Paul Thomas, Vincent and Joseph. Jerome Jeffries lives at Lafayette, Indiana. His children are Deborah, Michael, Timothy, Patricia, Caren and Shirley.

Naomi is now living at Delphi and Josephine Huber lives in Pittsboro.

Hildon E. Ayers graduated from Jamestown High School in 1925 and attended Wabash College. In 1935, he started working at the Pittsboro Branch, State Bank of Lizton and was associated with the bank until his death in 1973. He lived in Pittsboro. Hildon Ayers married Imogene Graves, and their sons are John, Peter and Matthew. Hildon was trustee of Middle Township from 1947 until 1955, and he was a member of the Pittsboro Masonic Lodge and the Pittsboro Christian Church.

John Ayers married Betty Blanton. They now live in State College, Pennsylvania, with their two children, Mark and Kristin. Peter Ayers married Nancy Sparks. Their children are Lucinda and Christopher, and they live near Cincinnati. Matthew Ayers married Jan Groves. They live at Pittsboro, and Matthew works at the State Bank of Lizton in Lizton.

Imogene Ayers is now living in Pittsboro.
