Averitt Family request
Posted by: Hazel Yarbrough (ID *****0693) Date: July 14, 2006 at 18:34:43

My husband is a descendant of John Averitt (1794-1870) who married (1) Jane Autry, (2) Emily Cain, and who lived in the White Oak area of Bladen and Cumberland counties. He was the son of Henry Averitt (1772- ) and Margaret Pharis (1768-). John had two brothers and three sisters: Isaac Pharis Averitt(1788-) who married Janet Horne, Henry Averitt II (1790-) who married Sarah "Sallie" Anderson, Margaret Averitt (1793-) who married Charles Hall, Sallie Ann Averitt (1804-) who married Jonathan Jones, and Charlotte Averitt (1807-) who married Arthur T. Melvin.
John Averitt and Jane Autry had the following children: Rev. John Crumpler Averitt (1818-) who married Helen Ann Crocker, David Thames Averitt(1820-) who married Mary B. Crocker, Jonathan Evans Averitt (1826-) who married Haseltine Judson Thaggard,
Margaret Averitt (1828-) who married William Hair, Henry Sterling Averitt(1829/30-) who married Phoebe Herring, Shepard Sewell Averitt (1830-) who married Jessie McAuslan and Stephen Hollingsworth Averitt(1832-) who married Ann Stringfield,
John Averitt and his second wife, Emily Cain, had the following children: Sarah A. Averitt(1861-) who married Amos J. Smith, Mary L. Averitt(1863-) who married William Stacy Smith, William P. Averitt(1865-) who married Rilla ?Beard, and Robert Lee Averitt(1868-) who married Ira Laticia Edge.
John Averitt served in the War of 1812 and received land bonds for his service and later his widow, Emily received a widow's pension for his service. John is buried at White Oak, NC and his family is planning a dedication for an 1812 Veterans Marker at his grave on Nov. 11, 2006 at 2:00 PM. Family members are invited to attend this event and meet their kin from around the US who are planning to come.
I have been compiling a book on the Averitt family for several years and have included work done by Herschel Strange Averitt and my mother-in-law, Ruth Averitt Yarbrough's book. I have found quite a lot of information on the family, as well as the exended family of John's brothers and sisters. I plan to have the book finished and ready for the 1812 monument dedication for family members who wish to have one.
If you are a descendant of one of the above listed families, I would like to communicate with you about what I have concerning your family and give you an opportunity to update and correct what I have before I print it.
You may reach me concerning the monument dedication or the book update at or Hazel Yarbrough, 401 Walters Drive, LaGrange, NC 28551.
