L. F. EVERLEY, whose fine farm of 114 acres, situated in Washington township, may be reached by traveling ten miles southwest of Sidney, O., belongs to one of the old families of Shelby county, which was established by his grandfather. He was born in Loramie township, Shelby county, O., July 3, 1866, and is a son of Jacob and Sarah J. (Feint) Everley.
Jacob Everley was a well known resident of Washington township where he was concerned in agricultural affairs and for many years followed the carpenter trade. He was a highly respected man; having been honest and upright in all his dealings, and left many friends behind when he passed out of life, April 25, 1912, in his
seventy-third year. He was a veteran of the Civil war and served afterward in township offices. His widow survives and is a member of the household of her son, L. F., who is one of the four survivors of a family of eight children.
L. F. Everley attended school at Lockington and afterward learned, the carpenter trade, which he followed for fifteen years. When prepared to embark in fanning as his main business, Mr. Everley purchased his present property, on which he erected new and substantial buildings and otherwise improved the place until it is one of the most attractive properties in the township. Mr. Everley and wife, who was formerly Miss Laura Booher, with Mr. Everley's mother, enjoy the comforts of this beautiful home alone, as they have no children. They are very hospitable, however, and have a wide circle of friends. They attend the United Brethren church at Lockington. Mr. Everley is a republican in his political views.
