Biography of Josiah Everest
Farmington Franklin County, Maine Biographies





JOSIAH EVEREST was probably born in Walpole, Mass., and was a twin brother of Mrs. Lucy Turner, wife of Reuben Turner. He was bred to the sea, and in the latter part of the Revolutionary War entered the privateer service under that renowned naval commander, Samuel Tucker, familiarly known as "Commodore" Tucker. Mr. Everett settled upon a part of front lot No. 45, west side, in 1790, but subsequently removed to New Portland, where he died at an advanced age, leaving numerous descendants. The writer regrets that he has failed to obtain his family register.
