Birth*circa 1640James Jolly was born circa 1640.1 
Deposition named in*29 May 1658He was named in a deposition on 29 May 1658 at Northampton Co, VA. The deposition of Francis Harper, aged 30 years or there about, taken in open court 29 May 1658. Saith that about Jany last, was 5 years, John Marckam sold one suite of clothes to James Jolly, to a debt of John Marcum due to Mr. John Corker Senr and Wm Corker Junr, past his word to pay the tobacco to his father & about three weeks after Mr. Corkser Junr came to my house and enquired for John Marcum and I made him answer, I knew not where he was then, Mr. Corker desired me to tell him, I have taken course to satisfy my father the tobacco. I past my word for James Jolly to him. Signed: Francis [his mark] Harper. Witt: John Boys.2 
Court - named in ord*1666He was named in a court order in 1666 at tract A161, Jolley's Neck, Accomack Co, VA. The court ordered the sheriff "to eject James Jolly from the land at Pokomoke patented by Edmund Scarburgh." Apparently the said Jolly was there only a short time as a squatter, but strangely, that name has presisted through succeeding years and it is still called Jolley's Neck, although the modern spelling is Jolley's. It continued to be the name of the plantation upon the land, and also this name was sometimes used for A162, which really is part of the same neck between the two creeks (Bullbegger Creek and Holden's Creek).1

Land survey named*8 October 1677Bridget (of Jno) Pott's name was shown on a survey on 8 October 1677 at Mr. Pleasant, Calvert Co, MD. When, sometime in 1676, John Pott of Calvert County died, he left a daughter Bridget and a wife Hannah. Whether Hannah was the mother of Bridget is not known. As to property, he left a tract of land known as Mt. Pleasant, and in his will he gave 200 acres of it to daughter Bridget and the remainder to his wife for her life. Widow Hannah promptly married Richard Edwards, and daughter Bridget married Daniel Cunningham. Because it was not possible to draw the line amicably, Cunningham demised his wife's part of the land to Ninian Beall for three years. On the same day on which Beall entered into the land by virtue of his lease, James More also entered and ejected The new leaseholder. Whereupon Beall sued More for 40,000 pounds of tobacco. On October 8, 1677, the Court, in the usual way, ordered that Edwards and his wife, who had been Hannah Pott, be admitted defendants, and ordered also that there be a survey made, with a plot and certificate. On February 14, 1677/8 Charles Boteler, surveyor for Calvert County, told the Court that he had gone upon the land as he was ordered to do, and that he “could not finde any bounded or lined tree of the same land or other known marke to begin the Survey upon, so that the same land I could not Resurvey nor the lines thereof runn out as by the same order I was comanded.”. At the suggestion of Christopher Rousby, Cunningham's attorney, made in the presence of George Parker, Edwards's attorney, the Court ordered Surveyor Boteler, “to lay out that tract of land which lyes next above the land in question formerly Surveyed for John Pott before the tract in question [Mt. Pleasant] was Surveyed, that the bounds of the land in question may be found out” and so that the Court could do “what to Justice shall appertaine” (post, 234-236). June 11, 1678 Boteler made his second return. By running one line he had been able to find the be ginning point for Mt. Pleasant, and to lay out its courses. He said that the northern part contained 200 acres, which is the amount John Pott had given his daughter, and that it included fifteen acres of cleared land now occupied by Edwards, but that it did not include any of the houses belonging to Mt. Pleasant. The Court ordered that the parties hold their tracts of land according to Boteler's plot, and that each party pay his own charges. In some of these land cases the phrase “as to Justice apperteineth”, is not used, but it seems clear that the Court, in considering all of them, was moved by that equitable desire.4

William Parkerson should have my horse Jack. My will is that William Harmanson Jr. be my executor. Signed, Isaac Dalby. Witnesses: John Upshur, William Dalby and Major (his mark) Andrews Jr.5 
Will - Witnessed*14 September 1807Isaac witnessed a will on 14 September 1807 at St. George Parish, Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Esther Scarburgh, Henry Folio & Isaac W. Avery witnessed the will of Edward Ker Scarburgh of St. George Parish.3 
Land bought*1818He bought land in 1818 at tract N63, Seaside Marsh, east of Marionville, Northampton Co, VA. Hillary Stringer and his wife Kitty B. Stringer, of Sussex (Del?) sold jointly to Isaac Avery and Ann T. Webb. Ther is no record of a formal division, but in future transactions apparently only the upland was considered in the deeds and each half was disposed of as 125 acres. (NOTE: Whitelaw implied this was Col. Isaac Avery, who was succeeded by a son Isaac W. Avery, but since Col. Isaac Avery died in 1799, it must have been sold to his son Isaac W. Avery in 1818. Ann T. Webb would have been his aunt.)1 
Tax list (personal)*15 February 1820He was on the personal property tax list on 15 February 1820 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as Isaac Avery and was taxed for 1 white male over 16 and 1 hores.6 
Est Settm't F-in-law*10 October 1821He was named in the settlement of his father-in-law's estate on 10 October 1821 at Northampton Co, VA. Estate settlement of Thomas Dowty Senr - Administrators John K. Floyd and John Simkins. Bond $10,000. Appraisers: John Nelson Jr., William Fitchett, Henry B. Kendall, John Wilkins Jr. Inventory, Appraisement and Account of Sales taken on August 16, 1820. Audit and Settlement. John K. Floyd and John Simkins executors. Mentions heirs; John Taylor in right of his wife, Edmund Dowty, Elizabeth Dowty (widow), John Evans and wife Catherine and Isaac W. Avery in right of wife Sally Savage. Recorded on March 14, 1825. (NOTE: Stacia Childers provided copies of N'hamp Co Will Book 37, p. 77 & 78, showing that on 10 Oct 1821 John Evans & Isaac W. Avery & Elizabeth Dowty, acknowledged to have received of Thos Dowty dec'd's Extrs their sums as the heirs of the Thos. Dowty dec'd., which was finally signed on 1 Jan 1822, after they were married.)7,8 
Security on MLB*30 November 1821He was the security on a M.L.B. On 30 November 1821 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that Isaac W. Avery was security on the M.L.B. of William M. Mapp and Elizabeth D. Hallett.9 
Marriage*14 December 1821He married Sally T. (of Thos) Doughty, daughter of Thomas Doughty and Elizabeth (-----), on 14 December 1821 at Northampton Co, VA. Peter S. Bowdoin was security on the M.L.B. of Isaac W. Avery and Sally T. Savage, widow of George Savage. They were married 15 Dec 1821 by C. Bonewell.9 
Land sold*1822Isaac Waightstil (of Isaac) Avery sold land in 1822 at tract N63, Seaside Marsh, east of Marionville, Northampton Co, VA. Isaac W. Avery sold his 125 acres of this tract to William Satchell and the year after that he resold to Luke Martin. In 1824 the sheriff sold the property to Edmund P. Wescoat.1 
Death*before 1827He died before 1827 at Northampton Co, VA. Isaac Avery shows up a lot in N'hamp Co Court Orders 1816-1822 and a few times in 1822-1826, but he is not in the index for 1826-31. He sues Michael Savage, guardian of George and John Savage. He is also appointed constable, but then later resigns.
He appears in a flurry of deeds and deeds of mortgage in the early to mid 1820's as well. I didn't read them all but from what I saw he seems to be paying off a lot of debts. In one he sells 2 slaves that he has "in right of my wife." Attached is the index from bk. 1819-1824. He does not appear in 1824-28 deed book.
He does not appear in Personal property taxes for 1824 or 1825. He is in 1826, but with nothing, and no tax charged. He does not appear in 1827-1830.
Looking just at this information one could surmised that he became ill, had to resign as constable forfeiting the bond, settled his accounts and then died about 1827, and as there was no estate to speak of he doesn't appear in wills, settlements or even court orders as there is no need to appoint an administrator when there is no estate.10 
Anecdote*7 March 2021 On 7 March 2021 R. Keith Bull (vzeuvn4h@verizon.net) reported that he and his mother Ruby Gordon Bull (Boole) (1918-2018) both had autosomal DNA matches with a Robert Gibbs, whose gg grandfather was James Avery (1791-1872), showing 3rd cousin for both mother and me on 23andMe and on Ancestry for me. I think it is likely that we are half cousins and that I would be a half third cousin once removed. I have on ancestry 2 more cousins that show James Avery as their gg grandfather, 6 that show James Avery as their ggg grandfather, 1 that shows Margaret (Peggy) Stringer Avery as a ggg grandmother. There are 5 cousins in common to one or more of those just mentioned that show Thomas (of A.) Kellam and Mary A. Lawson as our common Avery connection (six of the Thomas (of A.) Kellam children show Avery/Stringer DNA links. It appears to me that one of the Avery males may be the father of Thomas (of A.) or Mary A. I ruled Rev. Isaac out because of his death in 1799. James spent time on the Eastern Shore as a young man and is a possibility, but married in North Carolina in 1823. Isaac W. is the only child that lived permanently on the Shore after his father's death. He married Sally T. Doughty widow of George S. (of John) Savage in 1821. In 1822 John (242) Stringer's estate settlement and the settlement of the children of his sister (Margaret (245) Stringer who married Rev. Isaac Avery in 1785) guardian accounts showed cash was paid to James Avery orphan of I(saac) A., to M(argaret) S. Avery, and to Elizabeth S. Avery. Upon further research it was found that James Avery was named in 1815 at probate of Isaac's Dunton's will and in 1822 in the will of his uncle of John Stringer Sr. and that Isaac W. Avery was still in N'hamp Co in 1825 when he was named in his father-in-law Thomas Dowty Senr's estate settlement as receiving payment for Dowty's daughter & his wife Sally Savage. Since Mary A. Lawson was born about 1835 and her husband Thomas (of A.) Kellam was born about 1824, it seems more likely that Isaac W. Avery may have been the biological father of Thomas (of A.) Kellam.11

Witnessed a document*28 February 1815James witnesed a document that was recorded in court records on 28 February 1815 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Thomas Scarburgh, Zorobabel Henderson & James Avery witnessed the relinquishment of the provisions made for Hannah Dunton in her husband Isaac Dunton's will.7 
Est Settm't Uncle's*29 July 1822He was named in the settlement of his uncle's estate on 29 July 1822 at Accomack Co, VA. The estate settlement of John Stringer Sr - 24 & 25 Nov 1816 (Invy & Sale), 25 Mar 1820 (Order to Audit), 29 Jul 1822 (Rec'd) - Samuel Coard Admr. Negroes Presley, Gusher, Eli, Betty & Brandy. Buyers: Molly Stringer, William F. Stringer, widow & Hillery B. Stringer. Property left widow: Negroes Filberry, Charles, Aaron, William, Ned & Jenny. Legacy to Hillery Stringer. Appraisers: Richard Walter, Jacob Stringer & Isma Wyatt. Cash paid to James Avery orphan of I. A. for balance due heirs from this estate being in full of the guardian account. On 13 Apr 1822 settled with M. S. Avery & balance of account with her in full relative of John Stringer, her guardian. Cash paid Elizabeth S. Avery in full for her guardian account with John Stringer dec'd. Sale of Filberry to Polly Stringer. Auditors: Isma Wyatt & Richard Walter.8 
Marriage*6 March 1823He married Elizabeth Hollingsworth Brown on 6 March 1823 at Burke Co, NC. She was the daughter of Daniel and Hannah (Hollingsworth) Brown.9,2 
Death*4 March 1872James (of Isaac) Avery died on 4 March 1872 at Burke Co, NC, at age 80.4 
Burial*James was buried at Avery Family Cemetery #2, Burke Co, NC.4 
Anecdote*7 March 2021 On 7 March 2021 R. Keith Bull (vzeuvn4h@verizon.net) reported that he and his mother Ruby Gordon Bull (Boole) (1918-2018) both had autosomal DNA matches with a Robert Gibbs, whose gg grandfather was James Avery (1791-1872), showing 3rd cousin for both mother and me on 23andMe and on ancestry for me. I think it is likely that we are half cousins and that I would be a half third cousin once removed. I have on ancestry 2 more 3rd cousins that show James Avery as their gg grandfather, 6 that show James Avery as their ggg grandfather, 1 that shows Margaret (Peggy) Stringer Avery as his ggg grandmother. There are 5 cousins in common that are related to one or more of those just mentioned and me and show Thomas (of A.) Kellam and Mary A. Lawson as our common Avery connection (six of the Kellam children show Avery DNA links. It appears to me that one of the Avery males may be the father of Thomas (of A.) or Mary A. I ruled Rev. Isaac out because of his death in 1799 and his living off the Shore for some years before. James spent time on the Eastern Shore as a young man and is a possibility, but married in North Carolina in 1823. Isaac W. is the only child that lived permanently on the Shore after his father's death. He married Sally T. Doughty widow of George S. (of John) Savage in 1821. In 1822 John (242) Stringer's estate settlement and the settlement of the children of his sister (Margaret (245) Stringer who married Rev. Isaac Avery in 1785) guardian accounts showed cash was paid to James Avery orphan of I(saac) A., to M(argaret) S. Avery, and to Elizabeth S. Avery. Upon further research it was found that James Avery was named in 1815 at probate of Isaac's Dunton's will and in 1822 in the will of his uncle of John Stringer Sr. and that Isaac W. Avery was still in N'hamp Co in 1825 when he was named in his father-in-law Thomas Dowty Senr's estate settlement as receiving payment for Dowty's daughter & his wife Sally Savage. Since Mary A. Lawson was born about 1835 and her husband Thomas (of A.) Kellam was born about 1824, it seems more likely that Isaac W. Avery may have been the biological father of Thomas (of A.) Kellam.6

Birth*3 August 1842Mary Ruffin Caldwell was born on 3 August 1842 at Morganton, Burke Co, NC.2,4 
Married Namecirca 1850 As of circa 1850,her married name was Collett.1 
Marriage*circa 1850She married Dr. Waightstill Avery Collett, son of John Collett and Margaret 'Peggy' Stringer (of Isaac) Avery, circa 1850.1 
Death*December 1922Mary Ruffin Caldwell died in December 1922 at Morganton, Burke Co, NC, at age 80. "Mrs. Mary Ruffin Collett, one of the best known and most universally beloved women of the town, died early Tuesday morning at her home here. She passed away quietly and peacefully as if going to sleep, her frail little body apparently giving out under the strain of years. She had reached the advanced age of 80 years, her entire life spent in Morganton, where she married and brought up her own family."
"Mrs. Collett was a daughter of the late Governor Todd R. Caldwell, the Caldwell family intimately connected with the history of Morganton and Burke county since colonial days. Her only surviving sister is Mrs. Walter Brem of Charlotte."
"She married Dr. Waighstill Collett, who died a number of years ago. After his death she bravely took up the task of rearing a large family of children and how well she accomplished her life work has been exemplified in their lives of usefulness and service."
"The surviving children are: Mr. S. R. Collett, of Morganton; Mrs. John N. Wilson, of Greensboro; Mrs. A. M. Kistler, of Morganton; Mrs. J. J. Farnam, of New York; Mrs. J. T. Walton, of Hickory; Miss Minerva Collett and Mr. Moran Collett, of Morganton."
"The funeral services, attended by a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends, were held at Grace Episcopal church, of which she was a devoted member. The body was tenderly laid to rest in the church yard by the side of her husband. Rev. N. C. Duncan, rector of the church, had charge of the services. He was assisted by Rev. S. B. Stroup, of Hickory. The grave was heaped high with masses of beautiful flowers, fitting tributes to the life that had passed out and symbolic of her virtues and goodness."
"Out of town relatives here for the funeral were Mr. John N. Wilson, of Greensboro; Mr. Robin Brem and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mayer, of Charlotte, and Miss Kittie Laxton, of Asheville. Mrs. Charles Kistler who had been in Greensboro, came home for the funeral."
Editorial: A Beautiful LIfe.
"To some minds in thinking of people it comes rather natural to compare them with things in the material realm. In the last years of her life Mrs. Collett reminded one of a rare peice of delicate china, or a fine vase of exquisite beauty or possibly what more nearly describes the impression was that indescribable beauty of a pure white, full-blown rose from an old fashioned garden, one to be tended carefully lest the slightest breeze waft the petals away. In spite of the tender care, the loving solicitude the time had come for the petals to fall and there is left the memory of the purity and beauty of her life."
" However in her case there is more than a memory -- there is left on the community the impress of a life of loving kindness, charity and goodness. Her years were full of noble deeds, her life a benediction to the town where she lived and loved, experienced sadness and joy and gave to her children and freinds the heritage of her wonderful devotion, loyalty and loving service.".4 
Burial*Mary was buried at Grace Episcopal Church Cemetery, Morganton, Burke Co, NC.4
