35. Anna "Nancy" AVERY was born in 1804.8 She died between 1870 and 1880 at the age of 66 in prob Schuyler County, Illinois.

Daniel and Sally Avery, parents of Aney Avery gave their consent for the marriage. Bride & Groom both of Perry Twp. Uriah Clark, J.P. married them.


Apparently Anna moved back to Illinois with her youngest son. I did not find David & family anywhere in 1870.
