Birth: Aug. 8, 1834
Windham County
Vermont, USA
Death: Dec. 25, 1896
San Francisco
San Francisco County
California, USA

[original paragraph by Jana Keeler from Etta Averill page:] A beautful stained glass window is dedicated to Etta in the Zephyrus room. The words at the bottom of the window read "With Thee is the Fountain of Life" and "In they Light We Shall See Light"

The San Francisco Columbarium was originally built as part of the IOOF Cemetery (Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a Masonic Society). Sidney Newell was a member, as were others in his family. The Columbarium was constructed in 1898, about 2 years after the death of his sister-in-law Etta (twin of his wife Henrietta)

The book "Averell - Averill - Avery Family volumes 1 and 2" incorrectly states as 09aug1835

She never married
