3Family line connected by Tom Phillips, Jan, 2004: "In a letter written by Enoch's daughter Anna Marie Trimper, in the possession of Susan Danser, Anna Marie Trimper (daughter of Enoch H. & Tilly Everingham) refers to Clayton Everingham as her uncle and Enoch's brother. Only this Clayton Everingham, or Evernham, could be the one that Anna Marie Trimper is referring to! The reason is because the letter was written after 1865 and the only other Clayton Everingham was killed in the Civil War in 1864!

I would almost go so far as to say that Clayton is also the son of Enoch (b. 1780s?) & Mary Everingham, except for this possibility: Clayton may be his half-brother. Some researchers of this family line believe that Enoch's father (b. in the 1760s or so) was Henry Everingham (b. 1764) who still has 12 undocumented children out there.

1850 CENSUS Monroe, Middlesex, New Jersey (Line 4, family #135) ... Clayton Evernham 40, b.NJ,... Ann E. Evernham 34, b.NJ,... Charles Evernham 7, b.NJ.
notice there are only 3 EVERNHAM families living in Monroe NJ in 1850; Clayton & Ann,.. William & Mary ... & Ellison & Sarah... from a book reference it is extremely likely that Ellison & William are brothers, their father Henry was also from here. Now take a look at Ellison's son George who married Anna Perrine and compare that to Clayton's son Charles, who's daughter was Sarah Emma Perrine. Clayton married Jane Dey,.. Ellison married Sarah Dey. All these people living close to each-other in Middlesex County, New Jersey.
