Re: Frank Avery, Saginaw, Michigan
Thanks so much for the information you gave me yesterday, Christine. I emailed my sister-in-law, and she said that her great grandfather, Fred Wardell, was born in Mio, Michigan on 6-6-1884. I'm guessing then that Fred's father George Wardell was born in the 1860's, possibly a bit earlier. I see that there's a George Avery in Michigan, so I will try to track back on that name for possible connections, also, even though George was a common name back then. I'll be checking out the possibility that you mentioned that George's wife Emma was married to an Avery prior to being married to George, so possibly her maiden name is other than Avery. I did find an Emma Gage married to an Avery, so will have to fit the pieces together to see if they fit.
Don't forget to email me. I have some pics of Fred and his wife and family I'd like to send you.
