Children of Sydnor Everett and
6. Rubin O. Everett
was born December 1849 in Arkansas and died before 1920. He married Martha
Jane Rafferty on 7 July 1878 in Boone County, Arkansas, daughter of
Christopher and Mira Rafferty and widow of
Nathalgon Goforth whom she married in Harrison, Boone
A son of this first marriage, "Nate" (and possibly two other children),
died young. A daughter, Lou Alice Goforth, was born July 1875 in Arkansas and
married Monroe J. Kelley on 18 August 1889 in Faulkner County Arkansas. Martha was born 16 April 1855 in Arkansas, and died 23 August 1922 in Naylor, Faulkner
After the disappearance of her parents she, and her younger siblings, lived with
the William Head family who moved from Missouri to Carroll County, Arkansas by
1870 along with her married brother Thomas.
It appears that Rubin and Martha migrated to Searcy
County after 1880 and finally to Faulkner County by 1890. Family lore states that Martha was
15/16th Indian. Stories conflict as to whether she was Cherokee or Choctaw. One
story states that she was born on the Cherokee reservation in Oklahoma and was
raised in northwest Arkansas by a Mrs. Church. Though it appears that Martha's
parents did die when she was young (between 1860-1870) she is found living with
here oldest brother Thomas in Carroll County, Arkansas in 1870. Family lore also states
that Reuben was disowned by his family because he married an Indian woman.
Photos of Martha and her children show distinct Indian facial features though no
records have been found claiming Indian descent. In fact, Martha's death
certificate idicates that she was 'white'. Reuben was a farmer and Martha was a housekeeper. Neither could read or write.
In 1900 they owned a farm in Faulkner County, free of mortgage. Martha is
buried in Naylor
Cemetery, Naylor, Faulkner County, Arkansas. Her grave marker was destroyed
by a tornado.
