About Rufus Avery

"My son, Rufus Avery, sailed from New London in the schooner Mars on the 17th day of Nov., 1812—and on the 5th day of December he took charge of a prize Brig which was taken by the Mars and on that said fifth day came on a gale of wind and up to this date we have no account of him.
