"Charles B. Evarts, oldest son of Hon. William Maxwell Evarts (and Helen Wardner Evarts), died suddenly of heart failure at his home in Windsor, Thursday morning. Deceased was a sophomore in Yale college in 1863, when he enlisted in the famous Lincoln cavalry (Co.K NY First Cavalry Regiment), serving until the summer of 1864 when he was discharged because of injuries received in the field. and a consequent illness from the effects of which he never fully recovered. For many years he had the supervision of his father's large landed property in this vicinity; but of late had laid aside most of business cares. He was about 47 years of age, and will be missed by many deeply attached to him by the strong bonds of friendship. It is understood that the funeral services will be held in St. Paul's church, Sunday afternoon with interment in Ascutney cemetery."

Part of his work shortly after the Civil War was to build Lake Runnemede, formally called Evarts Pond. It is an artificial spring fed oxbow shaped lake.
