Where I Come From: Benjamin Franklin and Myrtle Mae McDaniel Ayres

Who are my people? Where do I come from? Why should you care?

I created this project so that I could show you the faces of folks who are part of my New Mexico tale and so that I could share some of their story. And so that you might consider sharing some part of your own “Where I Come From” story.

These are my maternal grandparents, Benjamin Franklin Ayres and Myrtle McDaniel Ayres. They seem like a good place to start the Faces of New Mexico and Where I Come From project.
