Profile of the Month
William Ayers (1609 - 1655), was among the earliest Puritan landowners in Isle of Wight, VA under the leadership of Richard Bennett. When the Puritans later removed to Maryland, William Ayers joined them along with his family before June 1652. On the 5th October 1653, "Mr. William Ayers" demands land for transporting himself, Sarah his wife (then deceased), Ann Ayers, Martha (Wells), his (2nd) spouse and nine servants"
William Ayers was the standard bearer for the Puritans at the Battle of the Severn (River) against the Cavaliers 25 March 1655 and was killed with the first gunfire. It is said that he was the first casualty in the first battle fought between Anglo-Saxons in North America.
Project Page of the Month
Ever wondered which profiles that the Southern Pioneer's Project co-manages ? There is an easy way to tell. Simply use this project page of the month. If you happen to find any profiles listed in this category that display the project template but do not have the project as co-manager, please let Paula or David know. This causes a Dbe (data base error suggestion) and we would like to fix those.:
Help Wanted - 5 Star Profile needs Improvement
The March "5 Star Profile" is Edward Reavis (1680 - 1752), This profile could use some TLC in the way of a general tidy-up and sourcing (in-line in particular). This profile is project managed and is evidently a popular search item so we need for this profile to look good , be concise and be properly sourced. Remember that this is a collaborative effort so communication is a must before making any major changes.
