Ev (E.V. or Evan) Everhart is the son of Jacob and Anna Everhart. He married Bell Bosley on January 31, 1879 in Harrison County, Missouri. There were no known children from that marriage and it is unknown what happened to Bell Everhart. Ev Everhart married a second time in 1895 to Mary Gillespie (nee Sutton, b. Jan., 1864), a widow with two teenage daughters. Mary A. Gillespie is shown to be married to Daniel Gillespie, a coal miner, in the 1880 Census of Harrison Co., Missouri, with one child, Lora (b. Dec. 1879). A second child, Leora Gillespie, born about 1883, appears in the 1900 Washington Census as a step-daughter of Ev Everhart. No further records of Lora or Leora have been found.
Ev and Mary moved from Missouri to Washington shortly after their wedding and settled in Pomeroy (Garfield County), a small logging town in the southeast corner of that state. Ev worked as a sawyer in a lumber mill. Ev and Mary had two girls, Letha Blanche (b. Nov., 1897) and Elma Ruth (b.1901), who were born in Pomeroy, Washington.
Ev Everhart (age 61) and his family were in the 1920 in the Washington Federal Census still living in Pomeroy. Both of their daughters were still unmarried and living at home.
The Washington marriage records indicate that Ruth Everhart (age 23) married Alvin Stepp in 1924 in Walla Walla, Washington. Ruth Everhart-Stepp died in April, 1973 in Edmonds, Washington.
In the 1930 Census, Ev and Mary are living next door to Letha and her husband, Homer Clarence Roberts. After Evan's death, in the 1940 Census Mary Everhart is living with her daughter, Ruth and second(?)husband, William B. Haywood.
The Washington State death records show that Eve Everhart (male) died at Medical Lake, Spokane, Washington, on December 25, 1937 (Estimated age 79).
He was listed as still married to Mary Everhart. She survived him by 22 years and was still living in Pomeroy, Washington, when she died in 1959.
