At his residence, in Brownville, Sunday, Oct. 24th, DR. JESSE AYERS, age 67 years. Dr. Ayers in early childhood, in company with his father's family removed from his birthplace, Woodstock, Vermont, to this then new and wilderness county of Jefferson. The locality selected by the father for a residence was in the southern part of Watertown, near Fields' Settlement. But a short time elapsed after their settlement there where the subject was deprived of a father's counsel and guidance. His father was among the first to respond to the “call to arms” in defense of his country, during her second and last struggle with Great Britain. He died a prisoner of war at Quebec. While yet a mere lad, Dr. Ayers fixed his mind upon the profession of medicine as an object for which to strive—and animated by the same steadfastness of purpose. He commenced practice in Brownville where he resided for 30 years. He was elected to the office of supervisor of the town last February. He was both husband and father. Transcriber's note: Jesse was the son of John Ayers and Hannah Winslow. John served in the War of 1812 and was taken prisoner; he died in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
