Hello. I am a descendant of Eliza Hopper and George Whiteman. Eliza did indeed leave her marriage wth George Whiteman. She did live with Stephen Avery for a short time but she never married him.

My great grandmother was Bertha Avery who married jacob Geange. There is information that Elizabeth married Stephen Avery. Can you place the connection of Frank Renouf.

Book called,
Born a Whiteman died an Avery.
