1850 Yorktown, Westchester, New York (house #79, family #88)... Henry Everingham 30, b.NY,.. Rebecca Everingham 21, b.NY,.. James Everingham 2, b.NY,.. Maria Everingham 1, b.NY This appears to be James & Benjamin's parents, Benjamin was likely born shortly after this census. Both Benjamin & his mother Rebecca claim to have been born in Yorktown, NY. There are records that say Benjamin was born 1849, and some say 1850, because of this census I believe the 1850 date is correct.
