Everett was born to George Edward and Sitha (Vaughn) Bennett. He married Margarett Wymore.
Everett and his son, Calvin, were killed in a farm tractor accident at the sawmill on the old Gilchrist place (Polk Township) near Everton, Missouri. Everett attempted to drive their tractor between two trees. Being too wide, the tractor flipped backwards, crushing them both under the tractor.
