"James and Martha Caroline Nixon Avery moved to the Crawford County area from Tennessee. The Avery Cemetery is located on a high hill overlooking the Avery homestead. This is one of the oldest burying grounds in the area. This cemetery is located out of Leasburg on highway MM. The cemetery was started in 1862 when a daughter died. After years of weather wear on the tombstones a lot of them crumbled and broke. After grandmother Avery died the family found a plat to the cemetery and new homemade stones were erected. Metal plates were put onto the stones the date of birth and death were left off of them."
