About Mary Avery (Griswold)

Buried in the Avery-Morgan Burying Ground in Groton, CT

The Groton Avery Clan, Vol I, pg. 117-119. This info is in agreement with The Genealogical Dictionary of the First New England Settlers, by Savage, p 318 & 590

CONFLICT-VERIFY: According to the History of Stonington, CT p. 203, Mary's

parents are Matthew GRISWOLD and Hannah WOLCOTT. If this is the case, there is

a possible Mayflower connection here thru Hannah WOLCOTT. According the

Genealogical Dictionary mentioned above, Matthew and Hannah/Anna (WOLCUTT)

GRISWOLD had no child named Mary. For this reason and the corroboration above

Mary is listed here as the daughter of John & Mary (BEMAS) GRISWOLD pending

further verification to the contrary.

From “The History of the town of Stonington, County of New London, Connecticut” pg 203

James Avery (No. 14) m. Mary, daughter of Mathew Griswold and Hannah Wolcott. Her father was the founder of the town of Lyme, and Governor of Connecticut in 1784-1786.
