Birth: Dec. 1, 1818
Perry County
Kentucky, USA
Death: May 2, 1864
Perry County
Kentucky, USA

Joe married Sarah Ann Bowling on March 19, 1836.
Father of William, Anderson, Abner, Lucy, Mary, and Elizabeth Eversole.

He was killed at home by Rebel Guerillas.

He was a farmer and in the General Merchandise Business.

Major John Eversole & brother Joseph killed by Rebels 2 May 1864, Hazard, Perry Co., Ky.

On May 2, 1864. Major John C. Eversole & his brother Joseph reportedly had left the service by this time & returned home to Krypton, perry co., Ky. The Rebels either were not convinced that the Eversoles had in fact given up the fight or sought out retribution for the Yankees earlier action. A substantial group from Caudill's 13th Ky. Cavalry (then under the command of Major Thomas Chenowith) attacked the Eversole house with great force that spring day & were successful at killing both Major Eversole & his brother Joseph. The Eversole house was riddled with hundreds of bullet holes throughout the thick poplar logs. Many bullet holes remain obvious today. It is notable that Irvin Eversole, a relative of both men, was a Confederate & served briefly with Colonel Caudill's 13th Ky. Cavalry, but it is not known where he was at the time of the fight.
Major John Evesole was the leader of the 14th Ky. Calvary & led the Union's forces in Eastern Ky. against General John Hunt Morgan. "Major John" was assassinated at the end of the Civil War outside his home.
