James LaRue Avery (born James LaRue Lane) passed away in 2013. He was a notable actor and even recently was trending on twitter after his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-stars recently watched a compilation video of him. His father James LaRue Lane Sr. was also inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame in 1993. 

Can you help connect them to the tree?

As a side note: His mother, Florence Juanita Avery, was the daughter of Beverly Avery. I can't figure out if it is the same Beverly Avery who was also a boxer. Clipping 1 Clipping 2

So far on his ancestry tree, it shows his mother and his paternal grandfather. To increase the chances of connecting to the big tree, you might want to go further back in generations.

I tried to connect him to Washington Carver, but it did not work.
Yeah, I know! That's why I'm asking for help tbh, I can't find a connecting document (besides Florence's obituary) to her parents, even though she should be in two different censuses. :)
