Clark Moulton Avery was the son of Isaac Thomas and Harriet Erwin Avery. He married Elizabeth Tilghman Walton on Jun 23,1841 at Morganton,NC.

He served in the Confederacy during the Civil War. He was wounded several times, and the last time a minie ball injured his left arm so badly it had to be amputated. While lying on the stretcher, he was shot again. He died six weeks later from an infection of the wound in his leg.

Avery was first buried in Virginia, but his wife went to retrieve his body . He was brought back home and buried in the churchyard of the Presbyterian Church. When this graveyard was moved, he was buried for the third time at the present day church.

His children were Martha Matilda, who married George Phifer; Harriet Louise, who married Rev. James Colton; Isaac Thomas Avery, and Laura Pairo, who married the Reverend John A Gilmer.
