  • Notes 
    • from Susan Avent Jacobs:

      "...my grandfather's second marriage to Lilly White. They had two children, Hazel Avent O'Neal (b. 1912 or 1913?) and my father, Woodrow McCam Avent, M.D. (1915-2000).

      As an interesting sidenote, at the time of the death of my father in August 2000, he, his father, Benjamin McConnell Avent , and his grandfather, Benjamin Avent had been alive during the lives of all of the U.S. presidents (apparently Geo Washington died in 1799 but later in the year than when my great-grandfather was born."
