Kendall Co Illinois Marriages:
William H AVERY married Sarah A. TRIPP Sept 7, 1865
Thompson AVERY married Jemima TRIPP Jan 20, 1863
Can anyone tell me for fact that the William H AVERY above who married Hattie
Hinsdale in 1862, is the same William H AVERY who married Sarah A Tripp in
Also, can anyone tell me what AVERY family, this William H AVERY comes from?
He was born in NY about 1840. Went to Illinois and was in the 1860 Somonauk
Township, Sandwich P.O Census listed as Farm Hand with the Joseph Latham
Was he related to the Latham family? He then went into the Civil War from
Somonauk, and when he got out in 1865, married Sarah A Tripp in Kendall Co.
There were several Sarah Tripps at that time also.
I believe he married the Sarah Tripp who was the daughter of Benjamin and
Jemima TRIPP who were in La Salle Co in 1850 Census and the Kendall Co Little
Rock Census in 1860. I believe Benjamin Tripp died and Jemima married
Thompson AVERY in 1863.
Is Thompson AVERY the father of William H AVERY???
They all ended up in Benton Co Iowa after 1868 and are all buried together in
the Mt Auburn Ia Cemetery there.
Can anyone please offer any info on these facts?? I am having a terrible time
tracing this William H AVERY further until I can find his parents names.
William H AVERY lived in Benton Co Ia Cedar Township Section 25
In the meantime, hope this info has helped someone else out also.
