Averys of Wood County

Both my mother’s side and my father’s side of my family tree intersect about 4 or 5 generations back. It all comes down to  the Averys and the Meekers of Wood County. Specifically the Averys descended from William Rufus Hyde Avery of New York and the Meekers descended from Mahlon Meeker from Sussex County, New Jersey. Many thanks to Darlene Lewis of Ohio for some of the information here and her research assistance.

Also, I will explore the inter-relation of the Averys to the Meekers of Wood County. It seems that many Avery siblings married Meeker siblings since the families lived next door to each other. I would like to track that and gain a better understanding of their relationships.
