speculation of Kevin Everingham;
In Henry's son's biography, he says he grew up in Conneticuit, this is another reason (along with name mis-spelling) that this Henry could be related to Gilbert Everingham. Gilbert may have died in Connecticut in 1832...It should also be noted that Westchester, New York borders Connecticut. Notices in New York Newspapers around where Henry lived suggest of the Business activities of Gilbert, In the 1790 CENSUS, Gilbert's father (Gilbert) spelled his name "Everghim" but no connection to him directly, has been found.... or even more probable parent, Gilbert's brother James Everingham of Westchester Co, NY & Brooklen NY. James' wife Avis Mott was born in Westchester County, NY. Henry and Rebecca Everingham obviously named their 2nd son after her father, was the first son named after his father? (a common practice in this era) When James (b.~1792) died in 1835 at Manhattan, NY, his name was spelled James Everinghim. It is also good circumstantial evidence that there are James Everinghim's in Henry's family but no Gilberts.

1895 The Highland Democrat, Oct 12, 1895.. "Mrs. Rebecca Currey Everinghim died at her home, 1112 Brown Street, this village on Monday evening last after a brief illness. Mrs. Everinghim was born in Yorktown some 66 years ago, and all her life was spent there on the old homestead and in Peekskill. She married in 1845. She was a member of St. Paul's M.E. since its organization. The funeral services were held at that church on Thursday. Two children, Mr. Benjamin C. Everinghim of Peekskill, and Mrs. Matthews of New York, survive, also three brothers, James H., Benjamin and Jonathan B. Currey, and two sisters, Mrs. Grove P. Mitchell and Mrs. Secor. "
since husband Henry is not listed as a survivor, it is likely that he had died prior to 1895.
