Joshua Chaseling Everingham (1847–1934)

After an illness of about a fortnight's duration, Mr. Joshua Everingham, a highly respected and well-known identity, passed away in a private hospital at Haberfield on Wednesday, 21st instant, at the age of 88 years. He was the youngest son of William Everingham, and grandson of Matthew James Everingham, the founder of the line so much heard of in recent years in connection with the inquiry concerning the "Everingham Millions." His mother's maiden name was Jane Chaseling, and upon the deaths of both parents he was cared for by the late Thomas Chaseling, of Pitt Town. He leaves several children and grandchildren.

On Friday morning, after a brief service conducted by Rev. Mr. Jeffs, Baptist Minister, at George Andrews' Funeral Chapel, Liverpool-road, Ashfield, his remains were laid to rest in the same grave as that of his wife, Frances Wilbow, who died in 1922.

Mr. Everingham's youth was spent in Pitt Town and Windsor. Later he was in business in Sydney, Brooklyn (while the railway bridge was being built), and Gundagai. For many years he had lived in retirement at Haberfield under the care of his son, Clarrie.

His family includes J. Clarence, Colin, Garnsey (all dentists), Nellie, Pearl and Florence. A son, Thomas, and daughter, Ruby, predeceased him. Amongst the many grandchildren present at the funeral were Ivor and Kenneth Chisholm, Ivor and Kenneth Everingham (dentists). His late sister Charlotte (Mrs. J. Smith), was represented by Mr. H. T. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. A. Uren and Mr. and Mrs. F. McBride.
