fact sources and writings about this individual: Research of Kevin Everingham

please be cautious, spouses maiden name and daughter "Jean" are all discoveries of circumstantial evidence. I have no actual paperwork to back it up except the details below:

1900 CENSUS, Chicago, Cook County, IL (enDist 408, sheet 11A, home 202) Doc Everingham, b.Feb 1868 IA, married 5 years, father b.CAN, mother b.IA.... Alma C., b.Feb 1874 IL, wife, parents b.Germany, mother of 1 child, 1 child living,... William, b.Oct 1895, son.

1910 CENSUS of Iron Mountain, Dickinson County, MI, shows a "Doc Everingham" 42, b. Iowa., Alma M C, 36,.. William 14.

1920 CENSUS West Twp, 47 precinct, Chicago, Cook, IL ... Richard F. Ruf 52 b.IL, single,... Doc Everingham 49, b.IA, brother-in-law, married,... Alma Everingham 47 b.IL, sister, married,... Williamson Everingham 23, b.IL, nephew, single.

1930 CENSUS Chicago (districts 1001-1250) Cook co. IL, (enDist 1050, sheet 17B, family 311)... William A. Everingham 34, b.IL, father born in IA, mother born in IL, married,... Henrietta 28, wife, b.Scotland, father born in Scotland, mother born in England, immigration year 1909. NOTE this home is 33 households away from his mother and her 2nd husband & uncle Richard Ruf also living in the same neighborhood in Chicago.

Henrietta's family (or probable relatives) were living in Waushara, WI in 1930:
1930 CENSUS Warren, Waushara, Wisconsin (Sheet 1A, home #10)... Edward Buchanan 58, b.Scotland,.. Rebecca 50, b.Eng, wife,.. John E. 30, b.Scotland, son,.. Margaret 18, b.US, dau,.. James 17, b.US, son.

By 1940, the Everighams; William, Etta & Jean all lived in seperate places;
1940 CENSUS Veterans Administration Hospital, Danville Twp, Vermilion, IL (Sheet 6B, April 21, 1940)... William A. Everingham 44, married, a patient, last residence: Chicago, Cook, IL. apparently William was quite sick and living at a veteran's hospital.
1940 CENSUS Chicago, Cook, IL (Sheet 1A, family #3).. Herbert Wanland 30, b.IL,.. Margaret Wanland 28, b.WI, wife,.. Nancy Wanland 6, b.IL, dau,.. Etta Everingham 38, b.Scotland, sister-in-law. This appears that Henrietta was living with her sister's family still in Chicago...
CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE: Chicago IL birth records shows a Herbert Wanland born May 2, 1910, son of John Wanland 42 of Stockholm, Sweden and Augusta Erickson 39 of Helsingburg, Sweeden... Herbert Wanland (b.1910 d.1950) is buried at Foster Road Cemetery in Redgranite, Waushara, Wisconsin. In this same cemetery is Henrietta Buchanan Everingham (1901-1995) and Jean Etta Everingham (1930-1999). It is very probable that this is William's wife and daughter. Also buried there is Rebecca Buchanan (1880-1969), Edward J. Buchanan (1872-1939) and 5 other Buchanans, one is John Buchanan (1899-1962), Etta's probable brother,.. John & Rebecca are listed below in the 1940 census. William & Etta's daughter was living with her grandmother and uncle in Waushara, WI in 1940, the census lists her former residence as Chicago, IL.

1940 CENSUS Warren Town, Waushara, Wisconsin (Sheet 2B, family #35) ... Rebecca Buchanan 63, b.England,.. John Buchanan 40, b.Scotland, son,.. Jean Everingham 9, b.IL, granddaughter.

1942 WWII Draft registrations for Illinois (ser #2664).. William Avery Everingham born 12 Oct 1895, of South Boulevard, Oak Park, Cook County, Illinois., age 47, born at Chicago, IL, person listed to contact: wife, Mrs. Henrietta Everingham, 1101 S. Blvd, Oak Park, IL

It should be noted that it is also possible Henrietta was first married to a Buchanan son of Edward & Rebecca who died young and she then had a second marriage to William Everingham.
