Hinsdale -Dekalb Co IL 1860
In 1862, a Harriet (Hattie) Hinsdale married a William H Avery.She was the daughter of Ebenezer Hinsdale and Harriet Newcomb, and was born abt 1844. I am trying to find out what family of Averys, this William H Avery came from.I have a William H Avery who was in DeKalb and Kendall Co IL at the same time, but I can not prove whether he is the one who married Harriet Hinsdale or not.
My William H was the son of Thompson Avery and Betsy (unknown) b 1840 NY.Harriet died shortly after they were married, and I would think it possible that she died giving birth.There is a Charles G Avery buried in the same area of the cem that was born in 1862 who could have been the child who survived.But he died in 1906.
Are there any Hinsdale relatives out there who have information on this family who can shed some light on what the real story was, and help me identify which William H Avery she married? My William H Avery, after coming back from the Civil War, married Sarah Ann Tripp daughter of Benjamin Tripp and Jemima Miller.Appreciate any help on this. Please contact me directly as I dont get back to check the boards that often.Thanks
