Starling AVERETT, Arpy AVERETT, Clary AVERETT, and Seley AVERETT to Jordan AVERETT (1825) – Pitt County

by | Articles, Deeds, Grants and Patents, Pitt County Genealogy | 0 comments

Below I have transcribed a deed from four of the heirs of David AVERITT, Sr. They are selling the land they inherited from their father. In his will, David said he had eight children. I think one of the girls below must be using a different name than he used for her in his will, but otherwise, this list, along with the ones named in his will and his son David (who I think is the David who moved to Craven County) would make up the total of eight.
