I am looking for anyone who knows any information on the Everson family who lived in Kandiyohi County from the later 1800's. My grandfather was William Arthur Everson born 1890 in Kandiyohi County. His wife was Amy Lund. My greatgrandfather was John (Johannes) Everson/Iverson (changed to Everson when they emigrated from Norway) He was born 1852. His wife was Christine Lunn born 1866. I know I probably have cousins still living in Minnesota. I found John and Christines graves at the Norweigian Evangelical Lutheran Church in Atwater. I have no other information to go on as to their dates of birth and when they emigrated from Norway. If anyone knows anything about these Eversons, or perhaps is related to me please contact me.

Kind regards and many thanks!

Each of this entries is for an article in the paper here. Is there any one of them you might like to have me look up for you, in particular?

I didn't include which were the issues but can do so if you want that.

There is a genealogy group here that does research also. They charge $5 for a brief check of available indexes (what I did would be part of this, I suppose). In depth research is $10 per hour. Extensive photocopies and Certified Document Fees are additional.

If you are interested in them, I can get contact information for you.

Were there any phone numbers of your relatives so you could contact them in person?

Here's what I found regarding Amy:

Willmar Weekly Tribune, No. 51, Vol. 41., Wed., 12-18-1935, p. 3:

"Gennessee woman has passed on

Mrs. William A. Everson of Gennessee Township passed away at the General Hospital at Willmar last Saturday afternoon, Dec. 14, after a lingering illness. The funeral services will be held at the Ebeneezer Lutheran Church at Kandiyohi on Wed., Dec. 18, at one-thirty o'clock."

Willmar Weekly Tribune, No. 51, Vol. 41, 12-25-1935, p. 7:

"Friends here were grieved to hear of the death of Mrs. William Everson, who passed away at the Willmar Hospital on Saturday afternoon."

Willmar Weekly Tribune, 12-25-1935, p. 5:

"Mrs. Wm. Everson

Funeral services for Mrs. William Everson of Gennessee township were held at 1:30 at the Ebenezer Lutheran Church with Rev. G. W. Sanstead officiating. Mrs. Albin Hawkinson and Mrs. Oscar Erickson sang a favorite hymn of the departed. There were many beautiful floral offerings. Burial was in the family lot in the Ebenezer cemetery. The pallbearers were Earl Peterson, Wm. Peterson, Albert Okeson, Arnold Paulson, Victor Carlson and Charley Berg.

Those from a distance attending the funeral were Alfred and Annie Lunn of Dassel, Bessie Offerdahl of Aberdeen, S. D., and Mrs. C. R. Dean of Röckham, S. D.

Amy Gard Everson was born February 7, 1894, at Dassel. Her death occurred December 14.

She was confirmed in the Mission church at Dassel May 15, 1910. On November 28, 1916, she was married to William Everson of Atwater. Mrs. Everson resided in the township of
Gennesse from her marriage until her death.

Mourning her death are her husband and eight children. The children are Myrvold, Winifred, Gertrude, Joan, James, Oliver, Jerome and an infant daughter. The following brothers and sisters survive: Mrs Hilda Nelson, residing in California, Annie Lunn of Dassel, Mrs. Bessie Offerdahl of Aberdeen, S. D., Mrs. Esther Dean of Rockham, S. D. and Alfred Lunn of Dassel."

Willmar Tribune, No. 41, Vol. 22, Wed., 12-13-1916, p. 7:


Miss Amy Lunn of Dassel and William Everson, resident northwest of Atwater where he has a farm, were united in marriage Wednesday of this week by Rev. J. E. Linner at the parsonage. The wedding was a simple affair. Mr. and Mrs. Everson left at once for a wedding trip to Isles in the northern part of the state. They will make their home near Atwater on their return.--Litchfield Review"
