HAWKINS COUNTY POSTED QUERIES
George EVERHART was born in Hawkins CO, TN, January 12, 1848. He
married Rebecca M. GRUBB who was born in TN June 01, 1851. They had
3 children. David Walter EVERHART was born June 10, 1875. My
Grandmother, Catherine Elizabeth EVERHART was born August 27, 1877.
I was told they had a brother, Jeff, who died when he was about 12
years of age. By his siblings birth dates, I assume the only census
Jeff would have been in was the lost 1890 one. How do I find his
birth and death date and where he was buried? Perhaps some
information on why he died. Thank you.
