Avery Stories

A number of interesting old letters from the Groton CT - Aurora NY - Grand Rapids MI Avery line have survived the years through descent in the family. This project attempts to share these documents with the broader Geni family in hopes of adding color and depth to the threads of this family lineage. These personal letters begin to shed light on the human condition within the historical framework of their times as can best be captured through the personal records of their own life experiences.

The letters have been transcribed for ease of reading, however scans of the original documents are provided when possible in the event the transcription is questioned.
