About Dorothy Avery (Parke)

The Hon. Richard A. Wheeler, in his history of Stonington, states that the wife of Capt. John Parke was Mary, dau. of Josiah Witter, b. Feb, 20, 1665. Certain deeds corroborate this. January 23, 1753, John Avery, Robert and Abigail (Avery) Allyn, Christopher Avery, Ebenezer Witter, Jonathan Witter, John Richards, Abigail Richards, and Hannah Parke deeded certain parcels of land which were laid out to the legal representatives of Josiah Witter, May 17, 1736, by Ebenezer Searles and Thomas Minor, Proprietor's committee of Stoneington.

We know that four of these are descendants of Josiah Witter; John, Abigail, and Christopher Avery could be such only through Mary Witter.
