Josiah Everingham (1840–1911)

On Sunday morning last Mr. Josiah Everingham died at his residence, North Arm, Coraki, after a somewhat lengthy illness. The deceased, who was 70 years and 11 months old, was born on the Hawkesbury, but when quite a young man he removed to the Clarence, where he followed farming pursuits. Eleven years ago he came to the Richmond and lived at Swan Bay for some years, some time ago moving to Coraki. The late Mr. Everingham was a man who mixed very little in public affairs. He was a prominent adherent of the Methodist Church, and for about 30 years was a local preacher, his father being one of the first appointed local preachers in Australia. A widow, six daughters and one son survive him— two of the former being Mrs. A. N. Percy, Coraki, and Mrs A. Lunney, Riley's Hill. A sister resides in Sydney, one brother on the Clarence; and Mr. G. E. Everingham, of Coraki, is also a brother. The cause of death was Bright's disease. The funeral yesterday, conducted by Mr. J. McMullen, was very largely attended, and the burial service was impressively read by the Rev. Mr. Sommerville, Methodist Minister at Lismore. The bereaved have the sympathy of a large circle of friends and relatives in their sad bereavement. Ensilage.—
