Surname Saturday -- LNU (Elizabeth married Samuel Ayers, England (?) to New England to New Jersey)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.  

I am in the 8th great-grandmothers and I'm up to Ancestor #2037, who is Elizabeth LNU (1673-????) 
[Note: the earlier great-grandmothers and 8th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts].

My ancestral line back through one generation of this LNU family line is:

1. Randall J. Seaver (1943-????)

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

6.  Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976)
7.  Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977)

14.  Charles Auble (1849-1916)
15.  Georgianna Kemp (1862-1952)

30.  James Abraham Kemp (1831-1902)
31.  Mary Jane Sovereen (1840-1874)

62.  Alexander Sovereen (1814-1907)
63.  Elizabeth Putman (1818-1895)

126.  John Putman (1785-1863)
127.  Sarah Martin (1792-1860)

254.  Mulford Martin (1763-????)
255.  Betsey Rolfe (1766-????)

508.  Thomas Martin (1737-1767)
509.  Elizabeth Ayers (1745-1767)

1018.  James Ayers (1716-1794)
1019.  Hope Bloomfield (1716-1776)

2036.  Samuel Ayers, born 1669 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, United States; died after 1740 in Woodbridge, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States.  He was the son of 4072. Obadiah Ayers and 4073. Hannah Pike.  He married about 1698 in New Jersey, United States.
2037.  Elizabeth LNU, born about 1673 in Massachusetts, United States, died probably in New Jersey.

Children of Samuel Ayers and Elizabeth are (all born in Woodbridge, N.J.):
*  Rhoda Ayers (1700-????).
*  David Ayers (1702-????)
*  Elizabeth Ayers (1703-????).
*  Samuel Ayers (1707-????)
*  Rachel Ayers (1710-1744), married 1741 Mulford Martin (1713-1744).
*  Jacob Ayers (1710-????)
*  Benjamin Ayers (1712-????).
James Ayers (1716-1794), married 1744 Hope Bloomfield (1716-1776).

I have no reliable information about Elizabeth's maiden name or parentage.  Some Ancestry trees and FamilySearch Family Tree indicates that her parents were Simon Tuttle and Sarah Cogswell.  However, in the Tuttle book that Elizabeth Tuttle married a Samuel Ayers, son of Peter Ayers, and had children different from the children listed above, and died in 1752 in Haverhill, Mass.

So, to me, she is still an LNU.
