Death: Apr. 2, 1911
Converse County
Wyoming, USA

Mrs. Alva W. Ayres died Sunday afternoon, April 2, 1911 at the home of Mrs. Walker in this city, having been brought in from the ranch on Saturday for medical attention. The cause of her death was heart failure brought on by long suffering from dropsy. Mrs. Ayres was one of the best known and beloved women in Converse County, coming here when Douglas first started. Sallie Clay was born in Bedford County, Virginia on April 29, 1850, married William Daniel Button in 1878, divorced in 1886, and came to Wyoming in 1887, with her son, Andrew, settling at Cheyenne. She was married on April 6, 1890 in this city to Alva Washinton Ayres, the family making their home on the ranch seven miles west of this city ever since. Mrs. Ayres was a descendant of Henry Clay, and closely connected with the Virginia family that has always been connected with the affairs of that state. She leaves to mourn her loss, the husband; a son, Andrew Clement Ayres; a sister, Mrs. William Steele, and a brother, William Clay, both of Cheyenne; a sister, Mrs. Cleveland of Clayborne, Missouri; as well as relatives in Virginia. (Information was obtained from her obituary in Bill Barlow's Budget, April 5, 1911 by Betty Alberts, FAG Member #47293729.)
