    Notes 
    • John, Mabel, and baby Elaine were living with Andrew and Annie at the time of the 1930 census. According to Jack Davis, John Everson purchased the Deerwood property in 1928.

      One of the first meetings of John Everson and Maurice Carlson is recorded in the December 5, 1938, edition of the Brainerd newspaper: “Mr. Carlson of Minneapolis was looking over property here which he purchased recently. He spent the night at the John Everson home.”

      The 1937-38 and 1939-40 Brainerd city directories, which include other communities in Crow Wing County, John E is shown as owning land in section 14 of Deerwood Twp and his address is Deerwood 1. John’s land is specifically shown as owned, although his father’s entries do not show ownership. This may mean that John’s is owned free and clear. Same in the 1942-43 directory. Same in the 1949 directory.

      In the 1940 census, John and Mabel and their three children lived in Deewood Twp. Mabel was a high school graduate, John had an eighth-grade education. John was a farmer. Living with the Eversons, as a lodger, was Alaine Smith, age 22, a public school teacher.

      Hospitalized with a “major operation” at the Community Hospital in February of 1949. Joanne believes that it may have been his appendix.



      John says on the back of a postcard of Sonora, Arizona and Sonora, Mexico, that “was here in 1929.” John was in Tucson in that year, as well as Nogales. He was in Calderwood, Tennessee, in 1930-31. There is a picture notated with “Rudy and I” taken on the Potomac River in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He was in Amberg, Wisconsin, in 1925. He was in Orville, Ohio, on 3-6-1926 and Payter or Paytes, Virginia, in July of 1927.

      John and Albin worked in Alaska on the Alaska Highway in the early 1940s.

      In their letters to Harold in January of 1945, both Ron Everson and George mention that John is out of work but expects to get a job soon.

      John enjoyed traveling but Mabel didn’t. John went to Florida to Bill’s and to Arizona with Jerry Redfield.

      The informant for his death certificate was his wife Mabel. John was a driller of water wells. He died “instantly” from ventricular arhythmia brought on by valvular heart disease with congestive heart failure.

      John’s funeral was at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Iron Hub. Casket bearers were Jack Davis, John Davis, Jeff Davis, Jerry Redfield, Gerald Everson, and David Everson.
