I am looking for family members of Lyndon Rees Williams or Elizabeth Everson who emmigrated from Machen (spelling?) during the early 1910's. Some of my family is still there, Harry and Hilda Southan also left and went to Detroit. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Wendy

I am descended from one of the Everson families of Machen, my grandparents being Rachel Everson, daughter of Edwin Everson & Emma Roberts, and Rigo Everson, son of Sudney Everson & Mary Mattock. Edwin & Sidney were brothers, being the sons of William Everson & Mary Green. Does any of this sound familiar? In any case, would love to hear from you with any information on the Eversons of Machen.

My grandfather (Gwendolyn's great-grandfather) was Garnet Everson. Rigo was his brother.
Garnet left Machen for Pennsylvania, where he continued to work in a coal mine, in the 1920s. When he was able, he sent for his wife, Emily Jones Everson, and their children, Ivy, Elizabeth (Bessie), Sydney, Mary, Dorothy, and Harry. Bessie was my mother (Gwendolyn's grandmother); she married Lyndon Rees Williams of Newport in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, in 1928, and they returned to Newport, where my sister Margaret Everson Williams, was born in 1929. The Everson family moved to Detroit, Michigan, in the 1930s. In 1947 my family came from Newport to Detroit so my mother could be reunited with her family. Garnet Everson died in 1949. Emily died in 1976.
Bessie died in Connecticut, aged 100, in 2009. The last of her siblings, Harry, died in Ohio in about 2008.

Elinor,
Hello cousin! And great to hear from you. Will reply properly when I've had a chance to look back at my "tree" as it's been rather dormant for a while. My email.address is friendlyfire61@gmail.com if that's an easier contact method for you.

Elinor,
Thanks for all that family information. I was in contact with your cousin Joseph Garnet Everson a few years ago but haven't heard from him recently. My father David Rufus, son of Rigo & Rachel was born in 1923 in Machen and died in 1997. His sister Rachel Ruth Edwina was born in 1926 and died in 2003. I'm David's only child (b 1961), and Rachel had one child - my cousin Peter (b 1958). Neither of us have children, so that will be the end of Rigo & Rachel's branch of the Everson family tree! I live in Dudley, West Midlands (where my father came to work in the 1950s and met my mother); Peter lives near Bath in Somerset. Whereabouts are you located? Look forward to hearing from you again soon.
John
