1911 Obituary, San Francisco Call, Sunday, Jan 15, 1911 "AGED WOMAN'S WILL BROKEN BY DEATHS -- Brother and Sister named as Beneficiaries were survived by Testatrix -- The will of Elizabeth M. Everingham, aged 88, who died January 10, practically in onoperative because the two chief beneficiaries, her brother and sister, died shortly before the testatrix. Samuel M. Everinghim, the brother, who was 91 years of age, died January 1 and Mrs. Marie M. Leeds the sister aged 93, three days later. The will of Elizabeth Everinghim, filed yesterday with the county clerk, left all but $75 of her estate, said to be worth $9,000, to be divided equally between the brother and sister. The death of these beneficiaries makes Marie E. Leeds, daughter of Marie M. Leeds, sole heir at law, and although she was not mentioned in the will, she will inherit all but $75 bequeathed to Avis Barnard Mathews, a grandniece of the testatrix, living in Brooklyn, N.Y. The will was dated April 12, 1910. Marie E. Leeds, who is 65 years of age, has applied to be appointed administratrix of the estate."
1999 info reference, @ genealogy.com, January 9, 1999, a user of that site is searching for "descendants of Stephen Peck Leeds (b. 1814, d. 1898) who went to the San Francisco area around the mid 1800's. He married Maria Everinghim." May find this family in California, Samuel and Elizabeth also lived there.
