Death: Feb. 19, 1866
Essex County
New Jersey, USA

Peter Daniel Evertz was the son of Peter Daniel Evertz Sr and Rachel (Wuesthoff) Evertz. Peter Daniel married Alvena (Kouart) Evertz. Alvena was a daughter of Plenry and Wilhelmina (Stracher) Kouart, both of whom belonged to old families of Germany. The grandfather of our subject served in one of the campaigns under Napoleon Bonaparte. With his wife and two daughters, Alvena and Amelia, he bade adieu to home and friends on the ist of December, 1859, and sailed from Bremen to America, but contracting a heavy cold he died on the third day of the voyage, and his remains, enshrouded in a canvas, were lowered into the depths of the sea. The widow, Wilhelmina, and her two daughters, Alvena and Amelia, together with their families all landed safely in New York, after a long and tedious voyage of fifty-five days. All went to Newark, where they resided for a short time and then took up their residence in the district which is now called Roseville. The second daughter. Amelia, was then a widow and had one child, Rosalie. The other daughter, Alvena, and her husband, Peter Daniel Evertz, had eight children (three more would be born in NJ). Evertz secured employment with Henry Sauerbeer, afterward working at his trade for some time in the employ of Jacob Wiss, the founder of the firm of Jacob Wiss & Sons, of Newark. His diligence and perseverance, after two vears, enabled Mr. Evertz to begin business on his own account in the manufacture of cutlery hardware, and in this he was very successful, continuously conducting the enterprise until 1865, when, on account of failing health, he was forced to relinquish the business. Within the same year he purchased his homestead in East Orange, consisting of a fourteen-acre tract of land, to which he intended to retire with his family; but on the 19th of February, 1866. at his home in Newark, he passed away, at the age of 41, his birth having occurred on the 2d of February, 1825. His wife, who was born on the 17th of May 1827 died September 30, 1881 at 53 years old. Peter and Alvena had eleven children: Emma, Charles 1849, Rosalie 1851, Ida 1853, Ernest C. 1855, Amelia 1856, Edward 1859, Peter "Daniel" 1860, Matilda 1862, Charlotte Wilhelmina "Minnie" 1864 and Bertha 1866.
The farm was on Boiling Point Road and was sold to the water company by his grandson, Ernest C. Evertz
