      Theora was the wife of Mr. Henry (Harry) Boyer Ailman, Co-owner of the Naiad Queen silver mine in Georgetown, New Mexico. The business partner, Henry Meredith and her husband used proceeds from the mine and opened the Meredith & Ailman Bank and store in Silver City, New Mexico. They built twin homes on Broadway Street, the Ailman home now houses the Silver City Museum. When the Ailmans business ventures collapsed, the family moved to Long Beach, California. Children, David, Theora Pearl, Theora, Grace, Harry Jr, and parents left Silver City, in 1892. Two additional children were born in California.
