Photograph of the Ayers family taken many years ago.Photograph of the Ayers family taken many years ago.This is a copy of a picture of Ayers family taken many years ago. The lady seated in center is my husband's Great-Grandmother with one of other ladies being his Grandmother and others are aunts and the man is Philip Ayers. I was hoping you could run the picture in your Genealogy column so maybe someone could tell us who each of others are. The Grandmother married William Bowman. I would appreciate anything anyone has on Bowman or Ayers family from the area around Meadows of Dan and Laurel Fork. Also Cox or Marshall.
