DEATHS

EVERETT.--David D. Everett died at the home of his nephew M. O. Everett, Hammondsport, N.Y., January 26, 1922.

The deceased was born in Howard, N.Y., in 1845, and was consequently in the seventy-seventh year of his age.

He was a veteran of the Civil War, having served in Company H, Ninety-first Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers. He was a member of Arch F. Jones Post, G. A. R.

After the war he settled in Potter County near the present town of Austin, and in 1870 was married to Mary E. Harris. To them were born two sons, Arthur who died in childhood, and W.K., now of Austin.

Mr. Everett moved to Alfred, N.Y., where he lived some years, returning later to Potter County.

He united with the Seventh Day Baptist Church, and while in Alfred was a member of Frank B. Mason Post, G. A. R. His health has been poor for some years and in December, 1921, he had a paralytic stroke, followed by another, January 16, which left him unconscious until death.

The funeral was in charge of Undertaker Fred C. Fancett, of Hammondsport, and sermon by Rev. Fay Chapman of the M. E. Church of that place.

Interment was made in Pleasant Valley Cemetery.--Coudersport (Pa.) Journal
