Angeline moved to Morgan County Illinois with her parents in 1858. They came to Richardson County Nebraska by wagon train September 11- October 2, 1864. They lived on a farm northwest of Humboldt on Long Branch.

Angeline was married to Phenias O. Avery at her home on May 26, 1867 and they made their home on the Avery homestead. They were the parents of six children.

Abner and Esther "Hetta" Dalbey settled on a quarter section of land on the Long Branch Creek of Richardson County, Nebr.. "Six weeks after reaching Nebraska, Theresa, [age 19] the younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dalbey died. Matilda and Angeline decided they would accept invitations to parties at any of the widely scattered neighbors. The next spring (1865) Angeline went back to Illinois and spent the summer with her school friend, Abbie Hall (Mrs. Shue) sister of Will Hall." In 1865, Angeline's sister, Matilda, died at the age of 24. The 1860 epidemic of "consumption/dysentery" that hit this area, could likely have caused the death of both of Angeline's sisters. Theresa, Matilda, Abner and Hetta are buried at the Standerford Cemetery, north east of the Dalbey homestead.
"In 1866, from April 15-July, largely through the efforts of Will Hall, a subscription school was held half mile south of his home in a good frame schoolhouse. Angeline Dalbey was the teacher. There were 15 pupils--" "The school was called Monterey from the county post office a little farther south of the home of Mr. McElroy. A year or two later this schoolhouse burned. Later in the fall of 1866, Mrs. Hall was sick and Angeline Dalbey had to stay with her. Religious services were being held at Monterey Schoolhouse and it was there she became acquainted with P. O Avery, the young soldier who had just that summer taken a prairie homestead."
