fact sources and writings about this individual:
most of the known information on this family comes from the research records of Kevin Everingham and Barb Curtindale of MI.

*Leora, widow of R. Dale Everingham (charles' son) and her daughter "Ruth" say they thought "aunt" Alice never had any children. (Verbal Reference July 1999)

1son -- Hugh died in Onaway, MI - Presque Isle Co. Deaths, #237, 15 Mar 1917 aged 13 years, 4 months, 28 days. died of Typhoid Fever. Father Arthur Keller, Mother Alice Irvingham. Hugh was raised by Jesse and Barbara Everingham, distant cousins who lived in the same area. (Onaway, & later Ocqueoc, Presque Isle County) Alice was 15 years old when Hugh was born. It wasn't until 1909 when American's perfected a typhoid vaccine for it's military and that wasn't released to the public until 1914. The first serious treatment beyond general antibiotics for typhoid wasn't developed in America until 1948.

2Marriage Notes: Sept-25-1934 This was the 2nd marriage for Alice and for Lorn. she was 46 and Widowed, and he was 48 and a merchant. Pastor: Elder Ernest M. Burt.
Witnesses: Roy Badger(o?) (Have found no Roy Badger, but Roy Badgero was a family friend) and Mrs. E.N. Burt

In Feb 2000, Percy & Mildred Everingham said that they remember Lorn's first wife "Maggie", who died in her bed in a fire. Percy also said that he did not remember his "aunt" Alice ever having any children. All of the family interviewed have echoed this same statement. This birth may have been covered up by the elders in the family at that time.
(see death info #1 above) It gives the impression that Hugh was born out of wedlock, since he had his mother's last name, and was raised by other people.
