EDWARD EVERTZ, a representative of the mercantile interests of Newark, was born on the 3th of August, 1858, in Solingen, Widdert, Prussia, Germany, and when three years of age was brought to America by his parents, Peter Daniel and Alvena (Konart) Evertz. Alvena was a daughter of Plenry and Wilhelmina (Stracher) Kouart, both of whom belonged to old families of Germany. Plenry Kouart served in one of the campaigns under Napoleon Bonaparte. Plenry and Wilhelmina and their two daughters, Alvena and Amelia, bade adieu to home and friends on the 1st of December, 1859, and sailed on the "Therese" from Bremen to America, but contracting a heavy cold, Plenry, died on the third day of the voyage, and his remains, enshrouded in a canvas, were lowered into the depths of the sea. Wilhelmina and her two daughters, together with their families, 105 in all landed safely in New York on 29 Jan 1861, 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. To the public schools of East Orange, Edward is indebted for the educational privileges which he received. He remained at his parental home until eighteen years of age and then began to learn the butcher's trade, with Joseph Schmidt, of No. 324 Broadstreet, Newark. When his term of apprenticeship had ended he bought out his employer and carried on the business for a year. On the expiration of that period he entered the employ of Louis V. Pfeifer, with whom he remained for five years, when, in 1887, he again embarked in business on his own account, at the corner of Eleventh and Warren streets, Newark. He met with excellent success, and in 1890 purchased his present business property and has added to it a number of good improvements. He here carries on a meat market and also deals in fruits and vegetables. His honorable business methods, his efforts to please his customers and the excellent line of goods which he carries, have brought to him a very liberal patronage, and his trade is constantly increasing. Mr. Evertz is a member of Trinity Lodge. No. 160, L O. O. F., in good standing, and in his political convictions is a Republican, who staunchly advocates the principles of his party without demanding official honors for his services. He was married in Newark, December 29, 1881, his union being with Miss Sarah McGill, a daughter of William and Sarah McGill. Their children: Harry Alexander, born October 23, 1882; may have had another daughter in 1883; Edna May 1884, m. Edward Henry; Alvina in 1899-1977 m. Walter Dewitt Baker and Jesse, June 19, 1890. The family attend the Methodist Episcopal church in Roseville. Harry Alexander married Florence Gray. He was 53 years old when he died of heart disease.
