About Eliza Williams (Avery)

Source: The Groton Avery Clan, vol. 1, p. 632. by Elroy McKendree Avery and Catharine Hitchcock (Tilden) Avery

"Eliza Avery was b. Aug. 31, 1796, at Groton; m. Nov. 21, 1850, at Groton, Denison Billings Williams, s. of Eleazer and Mary (Billings) Williams, and brother of the wife of James M. Avery (No. 1679). He was the widower of Hannah Avery (No. 1813) . He was b. March 2, 1794, at Stonington ; d. Feb. 23, 1867, at Preston. She d. June 27, 1883, at Groton."

"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 ...
