Info from Tom Phillips, February 2004;
1800 Federal CENSUS Town of Cazenovia, Chenango County, NY (now Madison Co.) Page 922, Line 13: Everingham, John. 4 males age 0-9, 1 male 16-24, 1 male 25-44, 1 female 25-44. Family fits here although no idea who the male 16-24 could be. From the Onondaga Centennial info listed on son; Jeremiah's page, we know that Jonathan was from Cazenovia.

research of Kevin Everingham, 2004-2010
1810 CENSUS Pompey, Onondaga, New York,... "Jno Evringham"
1820 CENSUS Pompey, Onondaga, New York,... "John Everingham"
1830 CENSUS Layayette, Onondaga, New York,.. John Everingham.
John was living with his son Jeremiah in 1850:
1850 Onondaga, Onondaga Co, NY Census #632/654 - Jeremiah Everingham, 52, farmer, (real estate owned valued at an impressive 10500!), Sophie, 47, Mary 22, Charles, 20 farmer, Martha 17, Lucy 13 (or 15?), Nancy 12, Albert 8,... Ira Clark 20,... John Everingham 86, Millwright, b.NJ

5Notes of Jonathan's sons suggest that he was born in, or was a Native of Connecticut.

Wife Nancy's last name has not been proven by anyone that I know of. Her last name may not have been Everingham! --- Notice of Nancy's death from Anna Wells Howell sent 2010... copied from the Fayetteville Luminary, March 26, 1840.

information from research of historian J. Roy Dodge, 1991
"Sometime before the birth of their son, Jeremiah, on August 2, 1796 (1) John and Nancy Everingham came to Cazenovia, N.Y. Cazenovia, first settled in 1793 by John Lincklain as local agent of the Holland Land Co., was then in Chenango County. In 1800 John "Evenham" was shown on the census of Chenango County with four males under the age of ten, 1 male aged 16 to 26, 1 male and 1 female aged 26 to 45.
Jeremiah Everingham stated in 1878 that his father built the first grist mill in Cazenovia. (2) By this we must assume that he was the builder rather than the owner. It was John Lincklain who caused to have built the first saw and grist mills in 1794 in his capacity as land agent. (3) If such is the case, this may date John Everingham's arrival in central New York and offer an explanation why he moved fifteen miles west of Cazenovia a few years later. Oddly enough his daughter, Charlotte Hamilton, born October 15, 1798 says on the Census of 1865 that she was born in Oneida County."
