Mrs. Avery was born February 25, 1861, in Alabama and she lived in Georgia until married when all of her folks moved to Temple, Texas, including herself. After living two years in Texas, they moved to the Indian Territory in about the year 1891 and she settled near the present towns of Davis and Keokuk Falls. Her father was J.B. Overton and he was born in Bibb County, Alabama. Her mother was Sarah Barton Overton who was born in Georgia.

Some came on the removal of the Choctaws in 1837 and 1838 and the others came soon after. Her parents accepted citizenship with the United States and by doing so were allowed to remain in Alabama. Neither she nor her parents ever received any money or allotments.
