You will find Thomas Ayres in the 1840 census inPerry Co, Ohio, under Thomas Ayrs. The 1850 census as Thos Agers. The 1860 census as Thomas Eyres. The 1870 and 1880 censuses as Thomas Ayres. He and his wife are buried in Whippstown Cemetery, Perry Co, Ohio. In Find A Grave they are listed as AYERS, but their stones plainly say Ayres. Do you know who his parents were? I thought maybe Thomas Ayres of Harford County, MD, but that doesn't seem to be correct.
