Full information on how the Avery children were orphaned and raised by relatives is on the pages for their parents, but this note is added (received in 2007 from Patricia Bishop, granddaughter or Laura Loudora Avery Warmath): "I remember my mother, Aunt Dorothy, and Uncle Clinton (who were the three youngest of Sid and Laura) always telling the same story about their parents. Sid and Laura married without Sid's parents' approval. It was felt that Laura was a servant in the Warmath home...Sid also was disinherited by his family because he became a Baptist minister. My mom, Dorothy and Clinton all agreed that somewhere in the Warmath family history they were related to the Rockefellas. To date I have not made that connection..."

Marriage records for Gibson County TN show A.S. "Warmoth" marrying Laura Avery in 1892.

The chart below shows how Sid and Laura could've had the same aunts and uncles without being blood relatives. Matching colors mean the people married each other. Harriet Della Warmath (Hefley) is listed only under her father, though she is also the daughter of Mary J. Rosamon (Warmath) in blue, making her the cousin of both Laura Avery and Sid Warmath.
