fact sources and writings about this individual:
Research of Kevin Everingham of MI, 2013:

1850 Yorktown, Westchester, New York (house #79, family #88)... Henry Everingham 30, b.NY,.. Rebecca Everingham 21, b.NY,.. James Everingham 2, b.NY,.. Maria Everingham 1, b.NY. This appears to be James & Benjamin's parents, Benjamin was likely born shortly after this census.

I found the family of James Everingham while searching for some information about a newspaper. The (San Juan Herald) was published at Silverton, San Juan County, Colorado from 1881 to 1885 where it probably changed hands and name. Between June 1881 and March of 1885 it was published by (Raymond & Everingham) - no further details about this but I did find this Everingham family that moved to this very same city and County in Colorado in 1880.

1880 Silverton, San Juan, Colorado (Page 369C #389)... James Everingham 33, b.NY, clerk, parents born in NY,.. E.A. Everingham 26, b.NY, wife, parents b.England,.. M.E. Everingham 4, b.NY, daughter,.. J.P. Everingham 0, b.NY, son. since J.P. was a baby, not yet a year old, and was born in New York, they obviously had just recently moved to Colorado from New York.
Silverton is a former silver mining camp, most or all of which is now included in a federally designated National Historic Landmark District, the Silverton Historic District.

1881 The Highland Democrat, Peekskill, NY, July 2, 1881 ... "We have received the first number of the San Juan Hearld, published at Silverton, Col., by Raymond & Everinghim. The junior partner is Mr. James Everinghim, formerly of Peekskill. The Herald is a neatly printed seven column folio and shows evidence of strong vitality and hard work. We wish it and its publishers unbounded prosperity in the Colorado gold hills."

1882 The Highland Democrat, Peekskill, NY, Sept 9, 1882 ... "Mr. James C. Everinghim, a former resident but for the past two years located at Silverton, Colorado, as local editor of the San Juan Herald, has returned to this village and announces that he will take charge of the Messenger establishment next week, having leased the office for one year. "

1888 N.W. Ayer & Son's American Newspaper Annual of Newspapers of the U.S. & Canada (Pg.364)... "Peekskill, pop; 6,893, Westchester Co., (The Messenger) James Everinghim, Editor and Publisher, Republican, established; 1862, size; 26x40, 4 pg., circulation; 1,100."

1890 The Highland Democrat (no date)... The Peekskill Critic made it's first appearance. The Puslishers are James Everingham of the late "Messenger" and Cassius M. Garner of the late "Idea".
1891 The Highland Democrat, Saturday, Sept. 5, 1891.. "Mr. James Everinghim of New York, a former editor of the Messenger, is spending his vacation among Peekskill relatives."

1893 The Evening World News (page 3) NY, NY, November 27, 1893... "STRICKEN ON A CAR PLATFORM. --- Secretary Everingham Dies in an Hour from an Attack of Brain Paralysis. James Everingham Secretary of the Third Avenue Railroad Employees' Association, died suddenly on a Third avenue car yesterday of paralysis of the brain. He had been at the Harlem Depot and boarded a downtown car. He stood on the rear platform, conversing with Conductor Knapp. At One Hundred and Twenty-fourth street Everingham fell without even a moan into the conductor's arms. The conductor, assisted by a passenger, dragged the unconscious man into the car and laid him on the seat. The car was hurried back to the depot. Efforts were made to revive him, but unsuccessfully. He leaves a widow and three children. Mr. Everingham was forty-seven years old. He was born in Peekskill and was graduated from Eastman College with the class of 1880. He founded and edited the Herald at San Juan, Col. He was for a long time owner and editor of the Peekskill Messenger."

1893 The Highland Democrat, Westchester Co, NY Dec 2, 1893... "JAMES EVERINGHIM, - The Sudden Death of This Former Resident. The relatives and friends in Peekskill of Mr. James Everinghim were greatly startled last Sunday afternoon to be informed by a special messenger from New York that this former well known resident had died suddenly. It seems that Mr. Everinghim had started from his home in West 94th street to go down town on board a Third avenue car, and had hardly boarded the car, when he sunk info unconsciousness in the arms of the conductor. An amublance was called and the unconscious man conveyed to the hospital, where he died an hour later from paralysis of the brain. He had been in his usual health, but was subject for years to violent headaches. Mr. Everinghim was born in the family homestead on Stoney street, near Shrub Oak, forty-seven years ago, and his whole life, with the exception of an few years was passed in Peekskill and vicinity. He first began his business life as a clerk in the dry goods store of P.D. Smith of Peekskill, and later for many years was a book-keeper for William M. Dayton in the coal business on Centre dock.
Some twenty years ago he married Miss Mary A. Frankland, of Peekskill and three children have blessed their union. The bereaved widow and fatherless children have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends. He also leaves a mother and brother in this village, and a wide range of relatives in the immediate vicinity to mourn his sudden death. With a view of bettering his condition, Mr. Everinghim retired from the coal business and went west with his family to engage in the newspaper business. He started and for a short time edited the San Juan Herald, at San Juan, Colorado. The mountains of Colorado were no the banks of the lovely Hudson and Mr. Everinghim and family returned to Peekskill, and purchased the Peekskill Messenger establishment from Mr. A.D. Dunbar, and conducted that newspaper for some years. Forced by a stress of circumstances not recitable to the originators to retire from that establishment, he in company with Mr. C.M. Gardner, started the Peekskill Critic, from which concern he soon retired, to take an engagement with the Third Avenue Railroad Company in New York, where he has remained ever since. At the time of this death, he was the secretary of the Third Avenue Railroad Employees' Association.
Mr. Everinghim was an excellent accountant, a fluent and pleasing writer and a gentleman of many companionable qualities. Fortune never smiled upon him, but he was plucky and energetic and if he did not succeed in one thing, was willing to try another.
Mr. Everinghim was an honored member of Cortlandt Lodge of Odd Fellows of Peekskill, being a P.G. and proper respect was paid to his memory by that organization. The remains were conveyed to Hillside cemetery, where they were placed in the receiving vault, with the full ritual of the Odd Fellows Lodge. (transcribed by Kevin Everingham, 2013.)
