Everingham being the only one owning a home in the suburbs, one-half mile north of town on the west side of the road. The house burned in 1893, the same week a disastrous fire destroyed nearly all of the business section of Alba. At the time Mr. Everingham came here, there was no road cut through the dense forest to his farm, so he had to carry the material for his house on his back."
