Hi Linda - thanks for your friend request which I accepted. Who are the Averys and Halsteads who you have in Bradford Co.? I am working on what I am calling The Avery Project which is a listing of all the Averys I can find in Bradford and Tioga Counties in PA and Chemung Co. NY plus the counties that surround them.
There is an Ebenezer Avery of Troy married Miss Elizabeth Halstead of Franklin 1 Jan 1829 in Franklin by Rev. Preston Bradford Settler 22 Jan 1829 There is an Alvin Aaron Avery (sometimes called Aaron Alvin) who was my grandfather's oldest brother. Alvin Avery Co. C. 7th Regt. PA Cavalry no dates St James Cemetery Waverly Tioga Co NY http://www.tioga.nygenweb.net/james1.htm Harriett R. Avery Oct 3, 1844 NY State - Apr 17, 1918 Waverly NY daughter of William and Elizabeth Eldridge Hested Buried Forrest Home Cemetery Waverly Tioga Co NY http://www.tioga.nygenweb.net/forrest1.htm There was also a William Avery died 8 Feb 1834 mentions Levi, Jacob and wife Elizabeth Bradford Co. Wills I believe she may be a Halstead. Do any of these ring a bell? Who are your Averys and Halsteads in Bradford Co?
