    fact sources and writings about this individual:

    see the New Jersey news article about J. Hamilton Evernham. Also known as "Hammy". Read about his problems as the Ocean County Game Warden.

    Evelyn Doris Evernham/Newman says she is not sure why "her grandfather James Hamilton Evernham, spelled his name like that, and his brother (Carroll Ross) spelled his last name (Everingham)" NOTE: see other Everingham/Evernham's closely related to this family... Many also spelled their names "EVERNHAM". No proof of why, but many "theories" exist as to why...like: (Breaking Revolutionary War ties to certain Everingham's, family fueds, illiteracy, poor family records, among others!)
