John Avery was born in about 1842 (the 1900 census says Sep 1843) in England. His parents were John and Ann (or Hannah). He immigrated to the United States in about 1850 and did become a naturalized citizen. 

In 1880, he and his wife Amanda were living in Lake Creek Township, Williamson County, Illinois, with some of their children. The youngest were twins name Merty and Gertie. In both 1900 and 1910, they lived in Owensville, Gibson County, Indiana. Only two grandchildren lived with them in 1910. By 1920, Amanda had passed away and John was living in Bremerton, Kitsap County, Washington, with his son Thomas. In 1930, he was still living in Bremerton; this time with his daughter, Gertie Meyer.
