    Notes 
    • Debbie Kingery says the daughter married a Bulger, which is corroborated by records.

      1840 census (where children's names are not listed) places age at 10-15, making her birthdate 1825-1830, but if mother Martha was born between 1810 and 1820 (based on censuses), it's unlikely that she married before age 16, so let's say 1826 at the earliest. More likely 1828.

      On the School Commissioners of Bath Co. for the tuition of poor children, June 24, 1842, it lists James, Thomas, Margaret, and Parker, children of William Ayres.
