Research Notes

According to census records, his family was living in Orange County, NY in 1860[5], in Putnam County, NY in 1870, and Westchester County, NY in 1880. I conducted a search of the surname Avery in each county on Find A Grave for memorials for Thomas Avery and did not find any matching the information. 2/28/2018

Further, the local history puts Thomas' birth between Grace and Elizabeth, giving him a birth year between 1865 and 1875, with date of death being before date of the 1900 census, June 12, 1900. Connie Mack Nov. 20, 2019
