1904 The Omaha Daily Bee, Nebraska, Saturday, Sept. 24, 1904... "Dead in room and gas turned on Prominent Farmer of Mills County the victim.. Furnam H. Everingham, an old settler of Mills county and well known resident of Glenwood, was found dead in his roomaa at Ogden hotel early yesterday morning, death having resulted from asphysixiation. The door and window were tightly closed adn the room was filled with gas from a wide-open burner. It was after midnight Thursday the Everingham, who had frequently been a guest of the hotel before, appeared at the Ogden house and asked for a room. His manner, it is said, indicated that he had been drinking and his signature on the register was a mere scrawl. The night clerk accompanied him to his room and before leaving him inquired if he understood how to turn off the gas. Everingham was somewhat indignant at the question being put to him and replied of course I know how to turn off the light. I ain't no Rube, am I? The window and transom over the door were both open, so the clerk states, when he left Everingham. Everingham was 57 years of age and is survived by his wife and two children, a son and a daughter, the latter being married. Two weeks ago Everingham's house in Glenwood was struck by lightning and burned, he himself having a narrow escape from being burned. The wife at the time of the fire and since has been visiting relatives in New Jersey. Everingham's visit to Council Bluffs was to close a trade with John L. Price for a large farm in Nebraska, he having arranged to meet Mr. Price yesterday morning at 9 o'clock. Deceased dealt extensively in farm lands and owned a number of fine farms in Mills county, besides a number of houses and lots in Glenwood. Henry Everingham, proprietor of teh commercial house in Glenwood, a brother of the dead man, came to the city on learning of his brother's tragic end, and took the body back to Glenwood, where the funeral will be held today.
