1911 Daily Sentinel, Thursday, April 13, 1911 (is this the same Ward? This would be about the time he got out of the penitentiary) ... "Rome, NY City Court.. Ward Everingham, a stranger in town, was arraigned in City Court this morning, charged with public intoxication. Ward had a discolored optic that looked as if it had come in contact with the sidewalk. He said he wanted to get to Oneida and get to work and sentence was suspended."
1912 The Syracuse Herald, Tuesday, March 12, 1912 .... "COUNTY HOME INMATE FOUND DYING IN ROAD, Everingham Expires in Hospital - Probably Result of Exposure, Physicians Say. Ward Everingham, 57 years old, who for the last seven years has been an inmate of the County home, was found lying unconscious in South Salina street about one-half mile south of Onondaga Valley shortly after 6 o'clock this morning by John Bailey, a milkman. Everingham was removed to St. Joseph's hospital, where he died at 9 o'clock this morning. The case has been reported to Coroner George R. Kinne, who will make an investigation and have an autopsy performed on the body. There were no marks on the body which would show that death was the result of foul play. There is a possibility that the man sank exhausted on the road and that death came as the result of several hours exposure. Everingham had relatives living near Rockwell Springs, and up to about ten years ago, he made his home there. In 1905 he was taken into the County home. From that time on he has been an inmate at the institution off and on. Last Saturday he told one of the officers at the home that he was going to leave. He left in the afternoon and had not been seen by the authorities since. This morning shortly after 6 o'clock John Bailey, a milkman owning a farm near the Indian Reservation, was coming into the city by way of South Salina street to deliver milk. When he was about one-half mile south of Seneca street, Onondaga Valley, he saw a man lying in the road. He pulled up his horse just in time to stop the animal from trampling on the body. Bailey got out and he recognized the man as Everingham. Bailey took the man in his arms and placed him in the wagon. He then drove with all speed possible to the offices of Dr. S. Ellis Crane of Onondaga Valley. The physician ordered his immediate removal to a hospital. St. Joseph's ambulance was summoned and Everingham was taken to that institution. He never regained consciousness."
