died December 24, 1914, Table Rock, NebraskaThis entire page was provided by Pam Petersen
JOHN MICHAEL AYLOR was born in Augusta Co., West Virginia October 13, 1828 and died at the home of his son Norris December 24, 1914 at the age of 86 years 2 months and 11 days. In 1832 he went with his parents to Madison Co Ohio. In 1850 he was united in marriage to Eleanor Knipe Norris who departed this life on February 24 of this year. In 1852 they moved to Van Buren Co. Iowa, where they lived for 35 years and reared their family. To this union eleven children were born, six boys and five girls, two boys dying in infancy. They came to Nebraska in 1887 since the death of his wife he has made his home with his children. His health has been gradually failing for several months and Sunday afternoon all realized that the end was near and at ten minutes of 8 o'clock he quietly passed away. In 1869 he united with the Baptist church and has ever been true to his faith in Christ. After coming to Table Rock he united with the Christian church of which he was a faithful attendant as long as his health would permit. He leaves nine children who mourn his going, also 44 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren who cherish his memory. The children are as follows: Mrs. Thomas McIntosh of Humboldt, Mrs. M.H. Irwin, Mrs. John Covault, Mrs. Dallas Mort, Mrs Case Davis, Mr. John and Norris Aylor of Table Rock, William Aylor of Napier, Mo., and Henry Aylor of Van Buren Co., Iowa.
Here is my thinking about information found on the census records.
Ohio, 1850, Madison County, Monroe Township, lines 32-38
John Aylor, age 49 born Virginia
Ohio, 1850, Madison County, Monroe Township, lines 39-40
John M. Aylor, age 21 born Virginia
It seems likely that John and John M. are father and son (or least least closely related). I need to find a marriage record for John and Charlotte to see if she is a first wife, etc.
Iowa, 1860, Appanoose County, Washington Township, page 584, lines 5-11
John Aylor, age 58 born Virginia
Also listed in same home are:
Sylvestor Bowen age 26, born Ohio
I believe Hannah to be the daughter of John and Charlotte Aylor.
Iowa, 1860, Appanoose County, Washington Township, page 584, lines 1-4
Wm W. Bowen, age 22 born Ohio
I believe Mary to be the daughter of John and Charlotte Aylor
Again living next door and ages match up to the 1850 census.
Iowa, 1860, Van Buren County, Van Buren Township, page 531, lines 7-12
J. M. Ailer, age 32 born Virginia
Iowa, 1870, Van Buren County, Jackson Township, page 287 lines 6-13
Wallace Bowen, age 32, born Ohio
Luther Bowen, age 37 born Ohio
Mary and Hannah sisters, their mother Chalotte. Father presumed dead.
Iowa, 1870, VanBuren County, Chequest Township, page 24 Lines 16-24
John M. Aylor, age 42 born Virginia
Iowa, 1880, Van Buren County, Chequest Township, page 6, Lines 38-45
John M. Aylor, age 51 born Virginia
I would like to add some more information about the family of John and Charlotte Aylor.
The Ohio 1850 census , Madison County, Monroe Township, page 290 also lists
George H. Aylar age 24 born Virginia
I believe him to also be their son. This would correspond to the Ohio 1840 census and my previous data leaving only a missing daughter.
Again, then in 1860 the Iowa census for Van Buren County, Chequest Township, page 552 lists
George Ailer, age 30 born Ohio
Even though the state of birth says Ohio I still think this is the same George. With John M and Eleanor nearby in the same county and both moving from Ohio to Iowa at the same time I believe them to be brothers.
