Andrew Everingham (1839–1924)

Another of the good old Hawkesbury natives, Mr. Andrew Everingham, has passed away. He died at the home of his son, Mr. Edward Everingham, of Penrith, on January 31, at the ripe age of 84 years. He was a son of the late Matthew James Everingham, who farmed many years ago at Stannix Park, near Sackville. The subject of this notice was born at Sackville, and he married Miss Mary Ann Watkins, a sister of Mr. James Watkins, who farmed at Sackville for many years, and was postmaster there; and of the late Frank Watkins, another well-known Sackville identity. The issue of the marriage was two sons and three daughters, viz., Emma (Mrs. Adolphus Woods), Robert, of Sackville North, Edward, of Penrith, Sarah Ann (Mrs. George Bennett, of Burwood), and Eveline May (Mrs. J. W. Mitchell, of Windsor). The deceased lived with Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell, of Windsor, for about 12 months, and recently went to reside with his son Edward, at Penrith, where he died. His wife died about 17 years ago. He owned a farm at Sackville North and some years ago his two sons, Robert and Edward, acquired it. The latter sold his portion a little time ago to Mr. George D. Turnbull. The late Mr. Everingham was one of the tall and hardy Hawkesbury natives, and was a very highly respected man. He was a most inoffensive man, and was always devoted to his home. He would never do a fellow creature an injury, and if he could not say anything good about a man or woman, he would say nothing. He was a very interesting man to talk to, and could tell many remarkable stories of the old days. He dearly loved a long yarn with old friends, and everyone enjoyed his society. The burial took place in the Methodist cemetery at Sackville on Friday last, the remains being laid alongside of those of his wife. Rev. J. Scharkie conducted the service, and Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
