     William Averett , son of Matthew Averett and Kizziah Miller, was born in 1808 at Hancock Co, GeorgiaG.3
     William Averett was probably in the household of Matthew Averit in the 1816 census of at Monroe Co, Mississippi Territory: Mathew Averit- males 2>21 (Matthew) (and John?, see 1820 census for Wilcox Co ), 1<21 (William); females 1>21 (Kizziah), 1<21 (Sarah Mary); 2 slaves.7,8,9
Lee Co GA was formed on Jun 9, 1825 from Creek Indian lands.

William Averett married Susan woWilliamAverett on circa 1828 The surname for William's wife Susan and their marriage date and location are unknown. Williams's father Matthew Averett was living in Monroe Co AL until the mid or late 1820s. In 1830 William and Susan, age 15-20,and a son and daughter both <5 years old were living in Randolph Co, GA. Randolph Co GA was established on Dec 20, 1828 from Lee Co GA. Current available marriage records start for 1835. A courthouse fire destroyed most Lee Co records in 1858. Based on Susan's age, 15-20, in 1830 and the fact they had 2 children <5 suggests that they were married soon after 1825. They could have been married in Monroe Co AL, Lee Co GA, or Randolph Co GA. We will probably never know. Maybe dna segment analysis will help to determine Susan's surname.

     William Averett Sr , son of Unknown Averett and Wife UnkAverett, was born before 1740. Maybe SC. Year is a guess. His grandson, John Averett was an adult in 1801, so born before 1780. Therefore John's father Albright would have been born before 1760, making William's birth before 1740.
     NOTE: The identity of the parents of William Averett Sr, John Averett, Archibald Averett, and Benjamin Averett is unknown. Based on circumstantial evidence it is assumed that they are probably all brothers. DNA evidence indicates that John, Archibald, and Benjamin were all related. It is a possibility that their father was John Albright Averett of Richland Co, South Carolina.

William Averett Sr married Judy woWilliamAverett on before 1760; based on estimated birth of Albright and Albright's son John Averett.2
     Albright Averett , son of William Averett Sr and Judy woWilliamAverett, was born circa 1760. Probably Richland Co Camden District SC. Birth year based on son John Averett being an adult in 1801.

Wilkes Co GA was formed in Feb 7,1777 from Cherokee and Creek indian lands. The other 7 iniitial counties were organized from existing colonial counties.

     Some of the early settlers of Georgia were from South Carolina. After their crops were made in South Carolina, they would come to Georgia,clear land, and built shelters until they were ready to move their families to Georgia.4

     Susan Averett , daughter of William Averett Sr and Judy woWilliamAverett, was born circa 1790. Guess since she married in 1810. FATHER: probably William Averett Sr since he was the only adult Averett known to be living in Warren Co at the time of her birth and marriage. Archelaus owned property in Warren Co at that time but he was living in Hancock Co and was probably not old enough.

The Outrage at Florence
The Times & Sentinel has been furnished by a correspondent at Glennville, Ala, with a particular account of the horrible tragedy which occurred opposite Florence on the Chattahoochee river, on the 2d inst [Jun 2 1856]. The outrage, as repoted by this correspondent, seems to have been so unprovoked and dastardly, that our neighbor takes occasion to say, "the communication is from a trustworthy quarter, but we think it more than probably that our correspondent has heard but one side of the matter."
Later intelligence, however, seems to confirm the account and advises us also that some of the guilty parties have been arrested. We copy the following particulars from the letter to the Times:

For some years, Matthew Averett has been keeping a ferry at Florence, on the Chattahoochee river, without a charter from the State of Georgia. In 1853, A.W. Hill, Esq of Florence, GA applied for and obtained a Charter from Georgia, for a ferry at that place, and opened a road on his own land, on this side of the river, leading into the old Florence road, and stopped the road leading from Averett's ferry on the Georgia side; whereupon Averett erected a toll gate across the Florence road on the Alabama side, and demanded and collected the same toll as he would have received at the ferry.
The authority upon which Averett claims the right to do this is an order of Commissioners' Court of Barbour Co Ala. granted to him in 1848, to erect a toll gate at the terminus of the Florence road on the west side of the Chattahoochee River and collect toll there at, and forbid any person to interfere with said gate within one half a mile on either side up and down the river. He has erected under the order a gate several hundred yards back from the river, just at the point where Hill's road intersects the old road. Many persons have paid the toll and many have refused to do so, but have removed the obstruction and passed. The matter has been agitated for some time, and the citizens on both sides of the river have become much excited, and have repeatedly torn down the gate.

On yesterday, several of Averett's relatives and his overseer armed themselves with double-barrel guns and proceeded to the gate, to guard it, and prevent persons from passing without paying toll. The names of said persons I understand to be William R. Cliatt, John McClendon, William McClendon, James McClendon, Wilson B. Averett, E D Averett, and ___ (omitted) Mies, the overseer. Upon their arrival, they secreted themselves behind a fence in an adjoining field. Soon after they arrived there, Nathaniel Roach, with his little son 5 years old, Robert Warhek, Samuel Driggers, and a man named Sykes, arrived at the gate and were about to pass through when the men fired on them from their place of concealment. At the first fire Mr. Roach's little boy was wounded in the neck and body--supposed to be mortally. Sykes was also shot down, mortally wounded. Roach, in endeavoring to save his child, by holding his own back to them, received a great many shots and is severely hurt. Warhek was wounded dangerously. Driggers was shot in the arm, but not dangerously. Driggers was the only man in the attacked party armed and his gun would not fire until too late to be any good.
You can better imagine than we can describe the excitement which prevails after such a shocking outrage. The officer, with a posse, is in search of the offenders, and anticipates some trouble in arresting them. All are well armed, and should they resist, more blood will be shed. The community will see that the law is executed.
A Friend to Order

P.S. Glennville, [Alabama] June 3 11 o'clock a.m. A letter has just been received by Mr. J.M. White from Florence, GA, stating that five more men had passed Averett's gate last night about dark, and on arriving at Hill's ferry, got into the flat to cross the river. Soon after they had pushed out into the stream they were fired on by some persons concealed in the bushes on the bank, and were severely wounded. We have not learned the names of the persons shot, or the extent of their injuries. The persons shot were some gentlemen from Georgia, who had volunteered to escort Mr. Roach, with his wounded child, home, and were attacked on their return.

Five O'clock p.m. Further particulars have been received. There were eight men on the flat when fired on last night, of which seven were wounded -- one though to be mortally. I must close as the mail closes. I cannot say what will be the result. "The end is not yet". Some of our young men, who went out with the officer, have not yet returned and I hope will not, until Right, Justice, Peace and Order are restored.
