Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you know of any one memorialized here who served aboard the USS Melvin DD-680 in the Pacific Theatre during WW II, please let me know.

I'm a transplanted New Englander. My parents are Paul Oscar Avery(1921-2003) and Betty Wheaton Avery(1925-1992). My mom's and aunt's interest in family history was passed to me. I have been doing family history research for over 25 years, most of which has been in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Maine.

I am retired, and live in The Villages, Florida, and would be happy to find and photograph cemetery stones of your friends or family in the Sumter - Lake - Marion County area.

If you find some pictures or monuments I haven't included, I'd love to hear from you when you post them. And corrections or additions to my postings are welcome. All suggestions are responded to within 48 hours unless I am out of town. If you supply me with additional information, I will always research and double check it before posting it to a memorial. There is simply too much inaccurate information out there.

I have completed projects on all cemeteries in Hawley, Buckland, Colrain, and Charlemont, Massachusetts. And another in Sears Cemetery in Barnstable County. Current projects include the Jenks Family in Rhode Island, the Groton Avery Family, and Shelburne, Franklin Co, Mass cemeteries. If any of my entries connects to your ancestors, let me know.

Please use the EDIT button on the memorial to initiate correspondence and recommend updates. I am no longer able to respond to emails that do not provide quick and easy access to the memorial in question. Also, if your e-mail is not provided on your profile page, I won't be able to respond to you if a response is needed. The public messages are not appropriate for back and forth discussion.

There are so many "orphan" memorials here on Find-A-Grave, many of which have been posted en masse and then forgotten. So many need identification and linking so we know who they were! After posting a memorial, please take the time to research, identify, and link the memorial properly..... it will go along way toward further establishing the credibility of this site.

Regarding transfers outside guidelines..... I will consider transfer to those who have a proven track record of collaboration on FindAGrave.

Hi, I've been adding photos for Oak Hill and noticed you recently left flowers for Charles. So I just thought I'd message you that I added photos for Charles. Sincerely, Dale

Hello,
I have added the edits you sent, and in trying to look at details of his life, I wound a tree that said he passed in NC ??? Do you happen to have access to records for him and Mary.... maybe a marriage record ?
Thanks in Advance & Blessings to You and Yours,
L Evans

RE: Sarepta Tinkham Jencks 19652856
I sincerely apologize. I confused 2 edits when I went back in to add them. I have the documentation of her birth on 9 Aug 1819 in Rochester, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Lydia Avery Roach
Hi Kevin -

I made the edits that you requested with a small exception. Technically Lydia Avery was born in North Groton also known as Groton and North Groton Parish. At the time of her birth Ledyard didn't exist.

BTW - I live on Avery Hill Rd within walking distance of the Christopher Avery and Avery Stoddard Cemeteries.

Thanks!
