Minnie Valentine Avis of Michigan, daughter of Thomas Avis
I am searching for information regarding Minnie Valentine Avis born in Michigan to a Thomas Avis who was from England.Minnie was my great grandmother, born in 1894. She married a man with the last name of Terry. I don't know much about my great grandfather since he died before I was born.Family rumor is that he died in prison for killing a guy.I used to sit and listen to her talk of her father coming over from England on a boat when he was 6 months old.Before she passed away in the late 1980's she gave me his bible that came over with him.
I am interested in finding out more about my family.
If you have any information regarding the subject people, please contact me with what you know.I am putting together a special scrapbook for my family to pass through the generations.
