Birth of a brotherWilliam EVELETH
between 1810 and 1820 (Age 6 years)

Death of a fatherAmariah EVELETH
before 1826 (Age 22 years)

Note: Based on fact that Amariah was not named, but his wife was, in the probate of his son Amariah and the fact that Amariah Srs sister stated that he was deceased in her 1830 will, Amariah was dead by 1830. In the 1826 Owen Society records in New Harmony IN it is clear that Amelia is the Head of Household; so Amariah must have died previously.

Death of a brotherAmeriah EVELETH
1830 (Age 26 years)
Note: Amariah Eveleth died in White County shortly after the family moved onto the land his mother Amelia bought from Seth Hull. Evidently Amariah did not own land but must have worked with his mother on her farm. He left an estate consisting of personal items and farm tools. The record of his probate is feint and difficult to read. It was found in the miscellaneous records of White Co and shows that the Eveleth, Withrow, Dagley, and Willis families were close.
Death of a motherAmelia GROSE?
1835 (Age 31 years)
Note: Amelia deeded the land she bought from Seth Hull to her son John shortly before her death. The records from the White Co deed book show that Amelia died in the home of John Eveleth and Sylvester Eveleth verified that John had fulfilled his obligation to care for Amelia until she died, about Oct 1, 1835.
Death of a brotherWilliam EVELETH
1840 (Age 36 years)
Note: William (Willis) Eveleth left a small probate record. It confirms his relation to siblings and his wife Patsy GUILLAND.

Note: Drucilla BAYLEY Eveleth, in her will probated in 1855, stated her husband Sylvester was deceased.
