Simeon (Simon) is the son of George Everhart and his first wife, Elizabeth "Betsy" Mizer. He was born May 23, 1844 in Tuscawaras County, Ohio. He enlisted in the Union Army on December 5, 1861 in Macon, Missouri, with his older brother, Benjamin. Both were serving in Company I, 7th Cavalry Regiment, Missouri Volunteers.

At some point early in the war, Benjamin was captured by Confederate forces (probably at the Battle of Lone Jack, Aug. 15-16-1862) He was later was returned to the Union side under a Prisoner of War exchange, and re-assigned as a hospital orderly. Benjamin died of pneumonia on June 27, 1863, in Irontown, Missouri, at the age of 20.

Simon picked up Benjamin's effects and delivered them to his father and step-mother in Kirksville, Adair County, Missouri. Later that same year (Oct 11, 1863), Simon died of chronic dysentery on October 11, 1863 at Jefferson Barracks while serving in the Union Army. He was 19 years old.
