<style type="text/css">
   .labels { color: black; background-color: #FF8075; font-family: Arial; font-size: 11px; font-weight: bold; text-align: center; width: 12px; }
</style>
<script src="mapwithmarker.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
  window.onload = function () {
    var mapOptions = {
        center: new google.maps.LatLng(markers[0].lat, markers[0].lng),
        zoom: 12,
        mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
    };
    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("dvMap"), mapOptions);

    var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();
   
    for (i = 1; i <= markers.length; i++) {
        var data = markers[i-1]
        var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(data.lat, data.lng);
       
        var marker = new MarkerWithLabel({
            position: myLatlng,
            map: map,
            title: data.title,
            labelContent: i,
            labelAnchor: new google.maps.Point(7, 30),
            labelClass: "labels", // the CSS class for the label
            labelInBackground: false
         });

        (function (marker, data) {
            google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function (e) {
                infoWindow.setContent(data.description);
                infoWindow.open(map, marker);
            });
        })(marker, data);

Second Way Marker Icon :

If you have only less than 26 markers then you can use this easy method marker icon which is provided by google only A-Z icon is available.

Eg:-
http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/markerA.png
http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/markerB.png
http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/markerC.png

<script type="text/javascript">
  window.onload = function () {
    var mapOptions = {
        center: new google.maps.LatLng(markers[0].lat, markers[0].lng),
        zoom: 12,
        mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
    };
    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("dvMap"), mapOptions);

    var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();

    for (i = 1; i <= markers.length; i++) {
        var letter = String.fromCharCode("A".charCodeAt(0) + i - 1);
        var data = markers[i - 1]
        var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(data.lat, data.lng);

        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: myLatlng,
            map: map,
            title: data.title,
            icon: "http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/marker" + letter + ".png"
        });

        (function (marker, data) {
            google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function (e) {
                infoWindow.setContent(data.description);
                infoWindow.open(map, marker);
            });
        })(marker, data);
    }
 }
