George Ayers was born in New York City March 15, 1856 and died at Belleville, Kansas, June 29, 1934, at the age of 77 years, three months and 14 days.
He and his sister, the late Mrs. Roedrick, were left orphans in New York at an early age and were adopted by Mrs. Ruth Parker. In the early part of the children's life, they, with their foster mother left New York and came west locating in Iowa where they resided for a few years. In 1871, when Mr. Ayers was a boy of 14, they came to Kansas and settled south and east of the present site of Cuba, where Mr. Ayers made his home up to the time of his illness.
