AGED MONROE RESIDENT IS CLAIMED BY DEATH
Basil Everheart (sic) Passes Away Sunday and Funeral Today
Basil Everheart, 78, one of the best known residents of Monroe, died at his home there at 8 o'clock Sunday. Mr. Everheart had been ill for several weeks, suffering from a complication of diseases brought on by his advanced age.
Mr. Everheart was a son of John and Rebecca Hendricks Everheart, and was born in Adams county, near Monroe, July 29, 1848. He was married to Josana (sic) Stephenson in March, 1883. Mr. and Mrs. Everheart have lived in and near Monroe since they were married. Mr. Everheart was the first drayman in the town of Monroe and he followed that occupation until his recent illness forced him to quit. He was the last of a family of twelve children. Surviving are the widow; three nephews, William Brandyberry, and Ira Wagner, of Monroe and John Wagner of Decatur; and one niece, Jane Baker of Decatur.
Funeral services will be held at Monroe this afternoon. Burial was in the Ray cemetery west of Monroe.
