In the name of God Amen. I, Andrew Ayres, of the town of Coeymans, Farmer, being very sick and weak in body but of a perfect mind and memory, thanks be given to God, calling unto mind the mortality of my body, and knowing, that it is appointed for all men once to die, do make and ordain this last will and testament, that is to say, principally, and first of all, I give and recommend my Soul into the hands of Almighty God that gave it, and my body I recommend to the earth to be buried in a decent Christian manner at the discretion of mu executors nothing doubting but at the General Resurection I shall receive the same by the mighty power of God and as touching such worldly state wheare with it hath pleased God to bless me with in this life, I give and demise and dispose of the same in the following manner and form. First, I give and bequeath unto my beloved son Moseman Ayers Fifty-Six acres of lease land lying and being on the south part of my farm with his paying the remains of a debt due to Levey Blaisdel on the same -- Secondly, I give and bequeath unto John Ayers, my Grandson, the set of Blacksmith Tools.

Also I do constitute, make and ordain Moseman Ayers my son and Nicholas Green my sole executors of this my last will and Testament, and I do hearby utterly disallow, revoke and disanul all and every other former Testaments, wills, legacies and bequaithed, ratfyed and confirmed this and no other to be my last will and Testament. In witness whereof I have hearunto set my hands and seal this fourteenth day of August, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and six.

Signed

Andrew Ayers

Sealed, published, pronounced and declared by the said Andrew Ayers as his last will and Testament in the presence of us, who in his presence, and in the presence of each other have heareunto set our names --
Stephen Naramoie, ANDREW AYERS "Jun", Jacob Osborne, Co of Albany

Will proved 18 October 1806

NO PROOF THAT HE IS SON OF PHILIP YET, JUST SPECULATION BASED ON AGE, PLACE OF BIRTH, and the fact that he had a son named Moseman, which would be expected if his mother was Margaret Moseman.

Westchester County, New York and the French & Indian Wars : 1755-1762 :
Andrew Ayers, enlisted April 3rd, 1759. Age: 21. Born: Bedford 1738. [this is in Westchester Co. N.Y.]
Trade: Laborer
Volunteer
Capt. Crain
Officer who enlisted: Captain Holmes
stature: 5'11"
light eyes, brown hair

I also do not know if this Andrew is the father of our Andrew in Bradford Co PA. I have only put him here because of the fact that he is the right age, he had a known son named Andrew, and he had a known son named Moseman, as does the Andrew in Bradford Co PA. I haven't found any other Ayres/Ayers who even comes close to this as a possibility. I must also say that Abijah is not in the will and may not be his son. However, Abijah's presence with Andrew in two different places, indicates a very good possibility, so I am leaving him here for now.
Of interest also is that 'our' Andrew in Bradford Co PA was supposed to be a veteran of the War of 1812, in Van Dalfsen's regiment, NY Militia. Van Dalfsen's was from Coeyman's, Albany Co, NY.

COEYMANS- (Quee'mans) was formed from Watervliet, March 18, 1791. A part of Westerlo was taken off in 1815. It was named from the patentee. It is the s. e. corner town in the county, and includes the Barren islands in the Hudson. Its surface consists of an upland, 200 to 400 feet above the river, broken by ridges and hills rising 100 to 400 feet higher. The principal streams are the Coeymans and Hannakrois Creeks.

History of Marlborough, Ulster, NY
New Marlborough 2G April, 1777.

Taken up by Lieut. Potter and brought before the Committee of New Marlborough, Samuel Towndson Depositions of Ebenezer St. John and Andrew Ayres, Against Samuel Towndson.

Appeared before this Committee Ebenezer St. John, and made oath that he heard the said Samuel Towndson say that after being warned he Did not Care for their Orders, and would not be Running after their Damned Nonsense. He was asked if he was not willing to obey Orders, and he Swore he would not, and Rode Round Mr. Freyer that was Discoursing with him in a way of Ridicule, and asked the said Freyer if he was not ashamed of going upon Such a Foolish Errand, as he had been to alarm the Colonies and inhabitants of Concerning those Tories now gone off. He said if he had alarmed five hundred he would not be able to take them. Andrew Ayres standing by told the said Towndson that he would take them with twentyfive men if he could come at them, and said Towndson told Ayres that he might take twenty-five of the best of his Damned Wigs and he would bring twenty-five men that should meet him upon Lattig Town plain and figbt it out with him, and insisted upon Ayres Entering into bonds to meet him, which ' Ayres did not choose to do. And further this Deponant Saith not.

EBENEZER ST. JOHN

Personally appeared before this Committee, Andrew Ayres, and made oath and Saieth that he was discoursing with Mr. Freyer Concerning the Toryes, Shooting Jonathan Terwillegar, and taking the said Freyer's Brother. The said Towndson being present, was asked by Freyer why he did not come to assist to take them. He told him he was warned to appear but not when nor he did not care when. The said Towndson demanded of Freyer where he had been and he said Towndson told him he had been to Alarm the County and he said five hundred would not take them.

The said Ayres told him that he would engage to be one of the twenty-five that would take them. The said Towndson said he might take twenty-five of the best of his Wigs, and he would take as many Tories and meet him on the Plain at Latting Town and Fight it out for which he offered to Stake money or draw Bonds for Fifty Pounds, and further Saith not.

ANDREW AIERS.

It would appear from the above proceedings that tories were being enlisted into the service of the English, that the town committee had issued orders for the people to turn out to intercept them, that Freyer had been riding around notifying, and that Towndson after having been notified to turn out, had refused to do so, and that together with his conduct afterward had prompted the committee to order Lieut. Potter to arrest him and bring him before the committee; and it would appear from the following petition which Towndson makes, that the committee held and imprisoned him.
