Irvine Eversole was probably the son of Absolum Eversole and Sarah Elizabeth Campbell. Some researchers believe that he was the son of Woolery Eversole and Lucy Cornett but he is not mentioned as one of their children in the Dickey Diary interview

Dr. Wilgus Bach wrote in his manuscript that, when Irvine was about 3 years old, his father died. Irvine was taken in by his grandfather Jacob. He lived with him until 1843, when "Old Jacob" died. Irvine then went to live with his sister's, where he stayed until he was 14 years old. He married in 1849, to Eliza Stacy, the daughter of Rough Jim Stacy, and they lived at Typo. They had six sons and six daughters. Irvine began preaching in 1854. When his wife died, his youngest son was 4 years old. Irvine got remarried to Anne Huff. She tried to raise his twelve children, but she died four years later. He married a third time, but it did not work out. Then he married Miss Hignite. They lived together for a long time, but then she left his house. Irvine later married a cousin of his first wife, Elizabeth Stacy. She was the daughter of old Sam Stacy. She was born on August 15, 1829. They lived together for forty years, but then they separated. He then lived with one of his sons. He told people that he would marry again if he "could find a good old woman to suit him." When he was near the end of his life, his youngest son had him perform his marriage ceremony for his third wedding. For many years, the annual family reunion was held on Irvine's birthday. He wrote a poem about marriage. It went as follows: Marriage is a pleasure and parting is a grief. But the unkind lover is worse than a thief. The thief can rob you and take you for his prey, but the unkind lover will take you to the grave," Dickey Diary interview.
