W.F. EVERHART, farmer, P.O. Gettysburg, was born in Highland Township, Adams Co., Penn., December 15, 1849, a son of Jacob and Elizabeth (Miller) Everhart, natives of York County, Penn., and of German descent. Jacob Everhart, who had been a shoe-maker through life, was the father of eight children, of whom W.F. is the fifth.
