WILLIAM R. BREWSTER wrote his Will 11-SEP-1832 as follows:
"I WILLIAM R. BREWSTER of the City & County of New York being mindful of the uncertainty of life & feeble in body but of sound and disposing mind & memory do make & publish this my last will & testament, and do give & bequeath unto my beloved wife & child all my property whatsoever after the payment of my debts desiring that the same may be invested as soon as posible in a safe and productive manner & the interest applied to their maintenance & support & to the education of my child but in case the interest of my property should not be sufficient for these purposes it is my will that the principal be applied to their use at the discretion of my Executors.

1825 Canandaigua, NY, Oct 1825... "NOTICE.. The subscribers inform the Public that the firm of A.U. MOTT & Co. under which they have hereto transacted business in this village, is this day discontinued by mutual consent; and the business of the concern will hereafter be conducted by Harris Seymour, as their agent, under the firm of James Evernghim & Co. who are duly authorised to manage all the affairs of the late firm, and to whom all debts due said concern must be paid, and all accounts due from them, presented for payment. Jos. D. & Jas Evernghim. Canandaigua, 8th mo. 1, 1825. To the Public The subcribers having appointed Harris/Seymour their Agent, in the business heretofore styled.. A.U. Mott & Co. do hereby inform the public,... we particularly invite our old friends and the public in every part of this country to have reference to H. Seymore, and to call and ascertain for themselves that is not a mere expression of words which assures them it will be much to their interest. Jos. D. & Jas. Evernghim. "
1826 Canandaigua Repository, March 15, 1826... "For GOODS at the lowest prices, at the store of James Evernghim & Co., Canandaigua."
1827* The New York Spectator, Friday, April 27, 1827... "Distressing Events. On Wednesday last, William, an interesting little son of James Evernghim, Canandaigua, between three and four years old, was kicked by a horse (which he was striking with a stick) and died the next morning."
1831 James Evernghim (0), b. Brooklen NY abt 1831, died 21 February 1831 at Manhattan, NY, NY
1831 Avis Everngham (33), b.Westchester Co. abt 1798, died 18 March 1831 at Manhattan, NY, NY
1835 James Everinghim (43), born in NY, died 24 June 1835 at Manhattan, NY, NY.
from these death records it looks like Avis died 1 month after their baby died, possibly from compilcations of child birth. This is also the same place where James' parents died, Gilbert in 1831, Phoebe in 1834.
Research of Kevin Everingham of MI, 2013 SPECULATION: The children of James Everinghim are not proven, thus not known as absolute. Three children could be the children of Gilbert who married Mary or James who married Avis Mott. It is known for sure and I can prove that the three children; Samuel, Marie and Elizabeth are siblings because of newspaper obituaries listing their siblings. Samuel's middle name of "Mott" makes me believe they are more likely the children of James & Avis "Mott" Evernghim. Brothers; Henry, William & James would have all been deceased by the time Samuel, Marie & Elizabeth died.
further circumstantial evidence linking all of James' children together;
1846 In White Plains NY newspaper "Eastern State Journal" dated 1851 or 52, the legal section discusses a Supreme court case of the last will of John Inglis against Henry Everinghim and Rebecca his wife, Samuel M. Everinghim, Elizabeth M. Everinghim and John Sherwood. This case also discusses the last will of Caleb Morgan, deceased and property he coveyed to Henry Everinghim and Samuel M. Everinghim, by indenture bearing date of 15th day of May 1846, recorded in Westchester County, Liber 115 of Deeds, Page 314.
