About Caleb Avery, Esq.

Caleb Avery entered Fort Griswold as a volunteer on the morning of Sept. 6, 1781. He was Col. Ledyard killed and was himself taken prisoner and confined in the old sugar house at New York. He was a pensioner. (Conn. Men in the Rev'n.)

"Caleb Avery, the son of James and Elizabeth (Allyn) Avery, was born February 25, 1760; the next younger brother of Rufus Avery, whose narrative is given elsewhere. He was living near the present location of the navy yard and entered the fort as a volunteer and was stationed near the southeast corner of the works. Seeing the treatment accorded to the garrison, he fled to the magazine; as he was turning to enter he saw the killing of Ledyard as heretofore described. He was not wounded, and was taken a prisoner to New York, and confined in the old Sugar House, but returned home late in the fall as I learn from his daughter Mrs Eliza Avery Williams, now living on Groton Bank. His wife was Mary Avery, a sister of Peter, also one of the prisoners." source: The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...
