In 1834 a group of people were involved in removing goods from a shipwreck at Barnegat Bay, New Jersey. The people impilcated were known as the "Barnegat Pirates" and were tried at Trenton, New Jersey in 1835. It was reported that a large number (100+) of locals were implicated including shop owners, farmers, sailors and "William Platt" a Justice of the Peace. At the time of this incident, George Holcomb Everingham was about 16. Names implicated with possible connections to this family were; Platt, Grant, Britton and "Holcomb Everingham". The Holcomb involved in this incident was referred to as a "boy", subpoenaed as witness for the prosecution. -- More info on this incident will be availible in a book that is being put together; "Amazing Everingham Stories, by Kevin Everingham".
