George Washington EVERHART and Susan COLLIER-EVERHART

Sue C. Everhart

G W Everhart
UPDATE - G.W. and Sue have been claimed and are going home to a direct paternal descendant. G.W. and SUE EVERHART age unknown.  The only clues in this pair of portraits is the studio stamp on bottom front of each "Sipple, Parsons, KS".

UPDATE - I have since determined that GW is George Washington Everhart, and Sue is Susan F. Collier. She appears to have been George's third wife and they had no children together, although George had a dozen children by his previous wives.

1870 US Census shows this couple living in Louisville, KY. At that time, George was 56 and his young wife Sue was 33. Children in the household were Charles (17), Emma (13), Marie (12) Logan (10) and Harry (8).

1880 US Census shows George and Sue C. Everhart residing in Osage, Labette Co., Kansas. George, a farmer, is indicated as having been born in 1815, Sue born in 1838. Both were born in Kentucky. The only child living with them is Logan who is 18 or 19 at that time, and working on a farm.

1900 US Census shows Sue C. Everhart, widowed, residing in Taylorsville, Kentucky, with her younger brother Abner L. Collier, an auctioneer and farmer. I was able to ascertain that her brother Abner Collier died in 1925 and was buried in the Valley Cemetery 1 mile west of Taylorsville, KY. Here is his headstone:
I expect that Sue C. Everhart can be found nearby.
