Everingham, Matthew James (1795–1884)

from Hawkesbury Chronicle (Windsor, NSW)

Many of our readers will hear with regret of the death of Mr. Matthew Everingham snr,– and yet there is little cause for regret – after a useful life, reaching within a few months of 90 years, 60 of which were spent on his farm at Sackville Reach – a thoroughly reliable man. As one of the first appointed trustees, he was to the last a staunch supporter of Methodists' interests; a man whose actions proved that he loved his neighbour as himself – the head of a large family, many of whom are left to follow in his footsteps; with many friends, and not a single enemy; living as a man should live, through good and through evil report, leaving an unblemished name – he "Having served his day and generation in the love of God, fell asleep," without a moment's unconsciousness or a struggle, on Saturday, 21 st November, 1884.
