Mr. Avery was born January 14, 1823, at West Point, New York. While still a child, he moved to Ashtabula County, Ohio. In 1846 he was married to Miss Lydia Ketchum. In 1857, they moved to Warsaw, Minnesota. In October 1861, he enlisted in 4th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. After serving one year, he was discharged for disability. He came to Lyon County in 1868 and was one of a trio of pioneers who settled in Custer Township. For a number of years, he has made his home in the city with his eldest daughter, Mrs. Joe Bensonson. All of his six children were present at the time of his death.

There is no evidence that I have ever come across to show John is the son of King & Mary (Hayes) Avery. There is also a record of their marriage which took place the year after John Avery was supposed to be born.
