"- Noteworthy among the successful agriculturists of Huron county is Thomas Everingim,.. now living in Monroeville, retired from active pursuits... A native of Ohio, he was born, April 10 1837, on a farm near Shelby, Richland county. His father, Peter Everingim, and his grandfather, Ezekiel Everingim, were born and brought up in New Jersey. His great-grandfather, Ezekiel Everingim, served under Washington in the Revolutionary war, suffering all the hardships and privations of soldier life, and he died soon after the close of the war. Ezekiel Everingim, his grandfather, learned the trade of a millwright in his native state, and in 1819 came with his family to Ohio, then the (far west), becoming one of the first settlers of Richland county. Following his trade throughout his active life, he built many of the early mills of the Reserve, and spent his last years at the home of his son Peter in Lyme township, Huron county, passing away July 30, 1849.
Born in Newark, New Jersey, June 10, 1809, Peter Everingim was but a boy when he was brought to Ohio, and was here reared amid pioneer scenes... Working with his father he learned the carpenter's trade and lived in Richland county until 1838, when he settled in Lyme township, Huron county. His wife, whose maiden name was Jane Champion, was born in Pennsylvania, but was brought by her parents to Richland county, Ohio when a child.
