I'm looking for additional information about the Ayle family of 3) Jefferson Twp, Madison Co, OH also 2) Martinsville, Henry Co, VA and 1) Germany [and 4) Kosciusko Co, IN as well].
From an article in the History of Jefferson Twp on the Ayle family. It says - 'We find the Ayle family as being early settlers of Jefferson Twp, and mention the name of John Ayle, whose father, Valentine Ayle, was a native of Germany, a patriot of the Revolution, and was captured on the ocean. He subsequently settled in Virginia, but finally died at Georgesville, Ohio. John was a native of Martinsville, Va. and reached Jefferson Twp about 1828. He ever after remained in the township until his death, August 17, 1861. He was twice married. By the first union, four children were born. His second wife was Elizabeth, widow of James Cannedy. Her maiden name was Griffith. She was a native of Pennsylvania, and died in Madison Co. She and John Ayle had a family of eight children'.
Their daughter Margaret Ayle married John Griffith (born in PA and who was married previously) about 1835 and their family moved to Kosciusko Co, IN around 1842. Also, are Elizabeth Griffith and John Griffith related? If so, how and from where in PA? Thank you for any assistance.
