MRS. CATHERINE HITCHCOCK TILDEN AVERY 



The Eighth Generation 925 

of the Groton Avery clan (see title page and preface). Mr. 
Avery is of unmixed New England ancestry; through his mother, 
he is a descendant of two "Mayflower" Pilgrims, Stephen 
Hopkins and his dau., Constance, and of Thomas Dudley, the 
second governor of the colony of Massachusetts Bay. Early in 
1861, he enlisted as a private in the 4th Mich. vol. inf., and, at 
the end of the war was mustered out as sergeant-major of the 
11th Mich. vol. cavalry. He is, of course, a member of the 
Grand Army of the Republic. He was graduated from the 
University of Michigan in 1871. He is a member of the Phi 
Beta Kappa society and has received the academic degrees of 
Ph. D., LL. D., and D. C. L. He is a Knight Templar and a 
32 Mason, a Son of the American Revolution, a member of the 
Zeta Psi (college) fraternity, and of many historical and scien- 
tific societies, and has served one term in the city council of 
Cleveland and four years in the state senate of Ohio. He is the 
author of the "Avery Physical Science Series" of text-books 
(physics a^d chemistry) published by the American Book Com- 
pany, and of Avery's "History of the United States and its 
People" (16 octavo volumes), of which seven volumes have been 
published (1911) by the Burrow T s Brothers Company of Cleve- 
land, 0. For further particulars, see Sweet's "The Averys of 
Groton" (pages iv, 484 and 496-502), "Who's Who in Amer- 
ica," and other biographical cyclopaedias. Mr. Avery desires 
to assure the members of the clan that his wife is a much 
more able genealogist than he is and that to her they owe 
the successful solution of many puzzling problems relating to 
their ancestry. She has also been untiring in her efforts to make 
these volumes as nearly complete and accurate as possible. For 
further particulars concerning her, see "Who's Who in America." 
They have no children. Residence, Cleveland, Ohio.

of any law firm in the western part of the state. He was 
admitted to the bar in January, 1877. He began his career as a 
popular political speaker in the presidential campaign of 1876 
and was soon made deputy county clerk. In 1881, he was the 
regular Republican candidate to represent his district in the 
state legislature, but the political upheaval of that year blasted 
his ambition. He has represented his ward (the wealthiest in 
the city) in the board of aldermen and has served several terms 
as a member of the Erie County Republican executive committee. 
He is now cashier in the office of the Treasurer of the city of 
Buffalo. He knows how to make friends and to hold them. At 
one noon-day function it was announced that "Avery knows 
everyone in Buffalo except those who came in on the 11 :30 
train." He is a member of the Buffalo Historical Society, the 
Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences, and the Erie County Bar 
Association. He is also a member of the Masonic fraternity, 
and of the B. P. 0. E. ; he is a past-master of De Molay Lodge,

No. 498, F. & A. M., and was appointed upon the staff of the 
grand master of the state of New York. He has been grand 
president (New York state) of the Order of the Iroquois, was 
twice unanimously elected as grand regent (New York state) 
of the Royal Arcanum, and was twice a member of the supreme 
council of that order. Many of his addresses have been pub- 
lished and, in fraternal circles, made use of as campaign docu- 
ments. Politics always had a fascination for him, and, while in 
national matters a strong partisan, his action in civic affairs 
is regulated more by his own judgment than by any stamp of 
party approval or regularity. In 1893, the firm of Avery and 
Murphy, attorneys and counsellors at law, was formed. An 
illness that continued for a long period necessitated a dissolu- 
tion of the firm. Subsequently, Mr. Avery became managing 
attorney for the well-known law firm of Bissell, Sicard, Bissell 
and Cary, an association that was continued until the dissolution 
of the firm. This firm was the successor to that of Cleveland, 
Bissell & Sicard, of which Grover Cleveland was the head. Resi-

The ancestry of Juliet Eliza 1 ' Avery, and of all the other 
descendants of her grandfather, Aaron 7 Avery, runs back to 
Capt. James- Avery by a triple line. First is the line printed 
at the head of this record. The second runs back through 
Ellsworth* (who did not die unmarried as stated in our record 
of his father's family) and through Aaron 7 who married Anne 
Kinne. Anne Kinne was the daughter of the Rev. Aaron Kinne 
who married Anne Morgan, as recorded on page 386. Anne 
Morgan was the daughter of Solomon Morgan who married 
Mary Walworth (or Walsworth), as recorded on page 153. 
Mary Walworth was the daughter of William Walworth who 
married Mary 4 Avery (No. 46). Mary 4 Avery was the daughter 
of Samuel 3 Avery who married Susannah Palmes. As to the 
third ancestral line, the Solomon Morgan w r ho married Mary 
Walworth was the seventh child of William Morgan who married 
Margaret 4 Avery, as recorded on pages 119 and 120. Margaret* 
Avery was the daughter of James :: Avery. The three lines unite 
in Capt. James- Avery, the father of James ; Avery and of 
Samuel" Avery. It is said that the Rev. Aaron Kinne above 
mentioned was acting chaplain at Fort Griswold at the time of 
the massacre in 1781. See page 374.
