"The Groton Avery Clan", volumes I and II. Elroy McKendree Avery & Catharine Hitchcock (Tilden) Avery, publisher unknown, 1912, reprinted by Higginson Book Company. 1456 pages, with an index that is very, very difficult to use. Without knowing the spouse's full name and dates it is almost impossible to locate the right person within a reasonable period of time, so vague requests fo common names will probably not help locate the right person among dozens or hundreds of people with the same name. I'm willing to try, but if not located within one-half hour I will give up on any search. MI
