Everingham, M.D. prominent among the medical practitioners of Bates County, was born in Oxbridge, Middlesex County, England, April 7, 1831, and is the son of Thomas and Mary (East) Everingham. In 1840 the family emigrated to the United States and settled in Lee County, Iowa. His primary education was received in his native country and Iowa, and he was for a time employed as a clerk in a store. When eighteen years of age he went to Fort Madison, Iowa, where he served two years at the printer's trade. He also learned telegraphy, but followed it only a short period. In the fall of 1858 he visited London, England, and availed himself of the opportunities offered in the hospitals of that city for still better qualifying himself for his profession. In 1859 he returned to his adopted country and resumed the practice of medicine at West Point, and continued the same until 1862, when he was appointed assistant surgeon of the Seventh Iowa Infantry. The Doctor was married in the autumn of 1859, to Miss Mary R. Steele, a native of West Point, Lee county, Iowa, and daughter of William and Nancy (Jones) Steele, natives of Kentucky. "
