Everything points to my ancestors being born in Pennsylvania, but a couple of the Averys show NJ as their place of birth on the census.My Averys appear out of no where in Bradford County PA just south of Elmira NY. None of them left behind any wills or deeds that were recorded. The oldest I have found is Jacob Avery, my great great grandfather b. ca…See More

Australia and the US Civil War

Australia  and the US Civil WarI work as a tour guide in Gettysburg for the Farnsworth House. One of the tours I do is a living history tour. We typically have at least one Australian on every tour. I wondered why the interest in the Civil War by Australians.  Now I know why. A lady on the tour last week told me there are three Civil War veterans buried in Adelaide. That got me researching and what I found is absolutely fascinating.Some of the soldiers from Australia were really Americans who…See More

A Little About Me
Retired, work part time as a tour guide in Gettysburg and having a blast.

Avery - Bradford Co. PA and Elmira NY area
Wolford Wohlford just about anywhere
Kleckner, Snook, Kraemer, Koch Bartels PA
Byrne Ford Broderick - Ireland, MA Syracuse and Cazenovia NY
I got started researching my family history ......
when I was in college and lived with my aunt who knew a lot about her ancestors.
I have been doing genealogy since ....
1971
We all have them - my biggest brick wall is .......
Those darned Averys In over 40 years I am only back to my great great grandparents Jacob and Rachel Avery. Jacob b. ca 1784 in PA he died in 1860's. Probably buried in Gillett PA. I have a sneaking suspicion they changed their name from Perry. My DNA shows that I am a Perry, not an Avery genetically anyways but historically an Avery.
By joining Looking 4 Kin I hope to .....
Solve this Avery mystery.
