(Source, Excerpts of Margurite Everly John)
Major Simeon was courteous and well read and always ready to impart knowledge he possessed. The following is taken from the Early History of Monongalia County in 1786 (one year after Morgantown was established) consisted of tithables, horses and cattle, as attested by john Evans, clerk, and J. Pendleton, auditor, was found among the papers of Colonel William McCleary and furnished us by Mr. John J. Brown. Listed under the David Scott return is the name Major Simeon Everly and 32 other (well known) pioneers."
History of Cloud County, KS by Holibaugh in which there is a sketch on the life of Simeon Oliver Everly. Simeon Oliver says of his grandfather Simeon Everly:"He was a slaveholder, but to those who desired freedom, it was granted at the age of 21 years. One day he gave an old slave a new suit of clothes and his freedom. The old slave was delighted at his owners generosity, but after wandering around for a few days, he returned glad to forego the franchise granted and spent the remainder of days in the home of his former master. He (Simeon) was a planter, distiller, and horticulturist. The family lived on a public highway."
