Avery Herrick was born in MA in 1781. He came to Italy Hollow (now called Italy Valley) in 1819. He moved to Naples, NY in 1830 and drowned in Canandaigua Lake in 1831. He had several children, but I only know Eldridge R. born in 1804. He had children named: Lorenzo, Lydia, William Avery, Harriet, and Lyman. Lorenzo had a son Charles Eldridge born in 1863. Charles had children: Bert, Leon, Flagg, Elmer, and Ina. Elmer was my father. I have had DNA testing done in Herrick Family project and it indicates I am from Ephraim. I cannot find any ancestors from Avery to Ephraim. Yes, I have purchased the most recent Herrick Genealogy book, but although it is excellently done, I cannot find my ancestors in there YET! Is there anyone doing genealogy work on Herricks in Ontario & Yates County who might be able to help?
