oldest daughter of R.G. Avery, Sen., aged 51 years.
Mrs. Walsh has been in poor health for two years, and for the last year has been a
great sufferer, but bore her sufferings without a murmur, and waited patiently for the
messenger of Death to call her home. The deceased was formerly the husband of Warren
Hawkins, who died in Alexander in 1857. She afterwards married Thomas Walsh,who died in
Omaha about eight years ago, since that time she has resided with her parents.
The father and mother are still living, and in good health, the father being 83, the
mother 75. They are old residents of Alexander, having lived here since 1836. The mother
was sister to Taylor Goodell, formerly of Attica.
They have reared thirteen children, then of whom are now living. Nine of them were
present at the funeral. R.G. Avery, Jr., one of the sons is conductor on the Buffalo and
Jamestown railroad, and John G. Avery, another son, is one of the proprietors of the
Continental Hotel in Buffalo. The children all occupy respectable positions, and what is
specially commendable in these children is the fact that for a long number of years it has
been their practice to meet around the parental table once in each year, and it is the
especial pride of these children to amply provide for the support of their aged parents.
