Information from Kimball G. Everingham:
William Everingham is still single and not located here in 1830, but:
1840 U.S. Federal Census of Erie County, Ohio, 290 (Huron twp.), line 11, William Everingham household
Information from Kevin Everingham:
1850 U.S. Federal Census of Erie County, Ohio, 169/85A (Milan twp.), dwelling 355, family 357, William Evingham household "William 37,.. Elvira 27,.. James 10,mal,.. Enide 5, fem, Eugenia 2, fem, William 1/12 mal.". Is James a transcription error? or nickname or additional name for John?.. he fits for the age of "John" given in the link above. Due to John's death record, I strongly believe John & James referenced in this Census are the same person. I've seen this census and it clearly spells out James. Also, I expect that the older 2 girls were living with other family, after their mother's death.
1889 The History of Erie County Ohio, published D. Mason & Co., Syracuse, N.Y. 1889.. "In a list of city officers since 1852, shows on page 314; in 1859, William Everingham was city clerk... this same book mentions John Everingham living in North Milan." On page (312) "The first occasion upon which a clerk was elected by the people was in the spring of 1859. The law authorizing this passed but a very short time before the election, and its provisions were unknown and unexpected to the great mass of the voters. But in some manner an enterprising young Democrat, named William Everingham, became cognizant of the fact, and managed to secure six votes for himself for the office of clerk and thus displaced Mr. Cogswell."
