Avery6 (Daniel5, Daniel*, Samuel3, Nehemiah2, Nehemiah1), b. in that portion of Waterford, now East Lyme, June 20,1794; m. 1824, Emeline H. Morgan of East Haddam, Conn., dau. of Capt. George Morgan of England, and his wife Anice Chapman. [See Chapman Gen., p. 117.] A sister of Emeline m. Deacon Simon Smith. [See record, 128.] Avery Smith was captain of a vessel in the coasting trade. At the age of 37 he commanded a packet from New Orleans to Mobile by the way of Lakes Pontchartrain and Borgne.

He bought out his brother's interest in the real estate, and was as much devoted to the welfare of his brother's family as though they were his own. Captain Avery, as he was familiarly spoken of, d. Feb. 20, 1871. He was a true Christian and a member of the Congregational Church. In money matters, especially for the benefit of the church, or for the improvement of the village, he was more than liberal. In manner and disposition he was quiet and always had a kindly thought for those around him. No ch.
