T his line of the Groton Avery Clan descends from Captain James Avery of Groton, Connecticut. Moses Avery (James Avery, John Avery, Nathaniel Avery, Amos Avery) initiated the migration of this family line when he removed to New York before 1821. Between 1830 and 1835, Moses Avery relocates to the Brock District, Oxford County, Ontario, CAN where his son Orin Avery settles, applies for naturalization and establishes a line of the Groton Avery Clan of Canada.

A nother son of Moses Avery, John Avery did not settle in Canada but continued to reside in the Finger Lakes area of New York. He removed to Michigan between 1840 and 1850 where he established a Michigan line of the Groton Avery Clan in and around Clinton County, Michigan.

A grand-daughter of this John Avery was Nettie Medora Avery (James Avery, John Avery, Nathaniel Avery, Amos Avery, Moses Avery, John Avery, James Merritt Avery). She married William Riley Tripp. This family migrated to Finis, Young County, Texas. We are unaware of any other Michigan Avery family members who went to Texas. We will appreciate any information concerning other Michigan Avery family members who moved to Texas..
