We have to start with the father in order to know the sons. Jonathan-5 Everett came from a long and well-traced line that I have included in the genealogy below. Jonathan moved from Attleboro, Massachusetts to New London NH before 1789 (according to the New London NH town’s history). He lived in a log cabin, and later in a frame house. He was an influential citizen. He married Mary Messinger/Messenger and produced eight children.

In a previous  story I wrote about this same Jonathan & Mary (Messinger) Everett’s daughter Mary, who married the Honorable Anthony Colby, a governor of New Hampshire. In this story I will show photographs of Mary’s brothers, David and Daniel Everett, along with their wives, and their family trees.
