Biography of Charles H. Everett
Steuben County, NY Biographies





Everett, Charles H., was born in 1859, in Wheeler, on the farm which was known in the early days of this country as the Wheeler deer lick, where the old hunters used to go to hunt deer. His grandfather, Jesse Everett, was born in Massachusetts, in April, 1784, a cousin of Edward Everett, and came to Wheeler about 1815, and settled in the forest. He was a great hunter, and as the country became more settled, he moved farther into the wilds and settled on the farm on West Creek which is now owned by Charles H. He cleared a great deal of land in this town, and reared six sons. Levi Everett, father of Charles H., was born in Wheeler in 1817, where he spent his life as an active and successful farmer. He married Miss Caroline Sampson, daughter of Christian and Catherine Bonstead of Herkimer county, by whom he had these children: Mrs. Alida Billings of Wheeler, and Charles H. Mrs. Everett had one daughter by her first husband, Ellen Sampson, now Mrs. Castor of Avoca. Charles H. Everett has spent his life thus far on the farm of 160 acres, which he came into possession of after the death of his father, and which he ably and successfully operates. He takes much interest in the breeding of fine grade Jersey cattle, and chickens; the latter he raises in large numbers. In 1884 he married Carrie A. Smith, a music teacher of Campbell, and daughter of Silas S. and Eliza (Everett) Smith, by whom he had one child, Nellie. Her grandfather, Barnabas Smith, was a pioneer settler in the town of Campbell, and the Everett family is noted for their interest in the temperance cause.
