s/o James Johnson and Mary Hale Averett/Avery.

Per Howard County Missouri Biographies Bonne Femme Township:


is an old resident of Howard county, having always made his home within her
limits. He was born June 16, 1836, near Fayette, his parents being James and
Polly (HALE) AVRETT. The former was born in South Carolina in 1803. Their
family consisted of twelve children, all of whom arrived at manhood and
womanhood, and of these nine are living. James J., the eighth child, lived
upon the farm with his father until twenty-five years old, his education being
somewhat neglected in youth. In March 1861, he was married to Miss Cynthia
Jane WINN, daughter of Thomas and Margaret WINN, both of Howard county. To
them were born eight children - Effie L., Boyd, William K., Luther, Peter H.
and Cassius are living, and two daughters, Minnie and Lulu, are deceased. Mr.
AVRETT is greatly interested in educational matters, and has given his children
excellent opportunities for attending school. He owns 240 acres of land, 200
acres being in section 16, upon which is located his residence.
