Biography of Albert Avery
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Avery, Albert, was a native of Connecticut, but at an early age went to Onondaga county, where he was an extensive business man, dealing in and shipping salt and carrying on a store. He left that region about 1839 and came west, locating for fourteen years in Yates and then coming to Barre, on the farm now owned by Mr. Homer Waldo. In 1868 he sold the farm, and afterward lived in Elba and Oakfleld, dying in the latter town in September, 1893. His wife was Emily Geer, and to them four children were born: Francis G., of Barre; Lura, wife of Willis A. Grinnell, and now dead; John, now in Michigan; Charles B., of Oakfield. Francis G. Avery was born February 16, 1839, and was brought up a farmer, though after his education at Albion Academy he taught school several terms. In 1861 he enlisted in Company K, 27th Regiment N. Y. Volunteer Infantry, and served until the spring of 1862, when he was discharged for disabilities, from which he has never quite fully recovered. In 1864 Mr. Avery came to his present farm, which is known as one of the best in the southern part of the town. March 24, 1863, Francis G. Avery married Sarah Jane Bliss. Their children are as follows: Emily, wife of Charles Porter; Lillian, wife of Edward Shotwell; Helen, wife Albert Grinnell; Albert, and Charles.
