Research timeline of Kevin Everingham of MI, 2013;
The first child "Charles" is speculation based on the 1850 Census.
1850 CENSUS Alton, Madison, Illinois (Family #368).. William Everingham 46, b.Eng, laborer,... Mary Everingham 45, b.Eng,.. Margaret Cradock 15, b.Missouri,.. William Iveringham 10, b.IL,.. Mary J. Iveringham 8, b.IL,.. Charles Iveringham 21, b.NY.
1853 The Daily Dispatch Newspaper, Richmond, Va., May 23, 1853.. A most revolting outrage was committed on Saturday night upon the person of a little daughter of Mr. Everingham of Alton, Ill., aged about ten years. The villain ascended to her apartment by means of a ladder, and is supposed to have administered chloroform to her while she was asleep, and then accomplished his purposes. He escaped before the alarm was raised, and fears are entertained that the girl may not recover.
1860 CENSUS Alton, Madison, IL (page 207).. Mary Everingun 48,... William Everingun 19,.. M.J. Everingun 17.
1865 State CENSUS, Madison, IL ... Wm. C. Everingum... 1m >20<30, 1f >20<30, 1f >60<70
1870 CENSUS Madison County, IL ... Wm. Everingham 28, b.IL, telegreph o.,.. Mary Everingham 26, b.IL,... Mary Everingham 68, b.Eng.
The Stalker, Quarterly Publication of the Madison Countya Illinois Genealogical Society Vol.17, #3 1997 on page 94 contains the obituary of Mary Everingum, nee: Wass. (I have not seen this obituary, only found the reference in an index.)
possible family link; or this could be completely unrelated
In the same cemetery (Hazelwood, Springfield, Green Co. MO) where William C. Everingum and wife Nancy are buried, is; Mary Everingham Decker (b.1837, d.1919) Her death certificate says father; John Everinham, husband John Decker. This is certainly this Mary, daughter of John Stoughton Everingham of NY. Could be a coincidence that they are both buried in this cemetery.
