Everette was born on July 13, 1905 according to family records, his SSDI and gravestone.
On April 16, 1930, "Everett; 24" was living with his parents "John; 59" and "Mary(?); 58" and working as a "House" "Carpenter" just like his father. They also had their "Granddaughter" "Mary E." ("8") living with them in "Vermillion City" (basically South Streator), "Reading Township", "Livingston County", IL. (Note: Enumerator did not record even the Street name let alone the house number.)
He had a heart attack while he and his wife and son Gene were visiting Glacier National Park in 1975, and because the closest medical facility was in Canada, they took him up there. But Everette died on July 19, 1975 while he was at that facility.
Everette's body was moved back to Streator, IL and buried in the Riverview Cemetery.
