My grandfather (Gwendolyn's great-grandfather) was Garnet Everson. Rigo was his brother.
Garnet left Machen for Pennsylvania, where he continued to work in a coal mine, in the 1920s. When he was able, he sent for his wife, Emily Jones Everson, and their children, Ivy, Elizabeth (Bessie), Sydney, Mary, Dorothy, and Harry. Bessie was my mother (Gwendolyn's grandmother); she married Lyndon Rees Williams of Newport in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, in 1928, and they returned to Newport, where my sister Margaret Everson Williams, was born in 1929. The Everson family moved to Detroit, Michigan, in the 1930s. In 1947 my family came from Newport to Detroit so my mother could be reunited with her family. Garnet Everson died in 1949. Emily died in 1976.
Bessie died in Connecticut, aged 100, in 2009. The last of her siblings, Harry, died in Ohio in about 2008.
