Hi Jean, I am in the process of arranging an 1812 Veteran's memorial service for John Averitt, cousin of your ancestor, Zachary Taylor Averitt who was the grandson of Daniel Averitt. Our John Averitt (1794 -1870) was the son of Daniel's oldest brother, Henry and was married to (1) Jane Autry and (2) Emily Cain. He served in the War of 1812 as did your ancestor, Daniel. We are placing an 1812 veterans memorial at his grave in White Oak, NC on Nov. 11, 2007.
I am also trying to complete an Averitt family book, which includes your ancestors, by the time of the monument dedication. If you have information on the Daniel Averitt/Mary Riley Averitt descendants, I would love to put them in the book. At present I have sketchy information on your family, mostly from marriage and death records, cemetery records and bits and pieces from different sources.
I will be happy to send you what I have on your family if you will check it and fill in the information you have on Daniel's family. You may contact me at or through this site.
If there are other descendants of Daniel Averitt out there that you know of who could fill in some blanks for me, I would love to communicate with them too.
