Birth: Sep. 25, 1847
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 7, 1902
Harrisburg
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA

Born in Chanceford Township the son of Samuel Alexander & Emily (Robinson) Ayers, in 1860 he was a laborer living in York Township, York County, Pennsylvania. He stood 5' 4" tall and had light hair and gray eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in York January 11, 1864, overstating his age by two years, mustered into federal service at Harrisburg January 20 as a musician with Co. B, 187th Pennsylvania Infantry, and discharged on a surgeon's certificate May 29, 1865.

He married Mary Broome in 1870 and fathered Sterling E. (b. 1870, d. 1877). An 1883 graduate of Baltimore Medical College, by 1890 he was living in Harrisburg where he operated a drug store and later served as a surgeon during the Spanish-American War. He died of pneumonia at his home after an illness of some weeks. Attending his funeral was Gov. William A. Stone, who had served with Ayers in the 187th Pennsylvania Infantry. Ayers' obituary inflates Stone's rank from his actual rank of 2nd lieutenant to colonel, probably confusing Stone's post-war service with the National Guard.

He signed his enlistment papers "Ayres."
