Everett Culver, son of Horace and Maria Culver, was born in the state of New York, Nov. 25, 1852, and died Nov. 21, 1929.
At an early date, the family came west, locating at what is known as the Culver homestead. Here he spent his early life. On Feb. 29, 1880, he was united in marriage to Alice E. Gilbert. In 1882 he moved to the farm where he since lived.
He leaves a wife; four children, Blanche Richards, Floyd, Eva Atwell, and Horace; one brother, Simeon, of Grayslake; one sister, Mrs. Julia Allen of El Paso, Texas; four grandchildren; two great grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn the lost of one they loved dearly.
Mr. Culver was an understanding man of upright and sterling character. He was a great reader, this characteristic broadening his vision and outlook upon the world. He began to fail in health last March, and had been confined to his bed since June, gradually failing until the end, death being due to arteriosclerosis. He had also been suffering from rheumatism for the last 30 years, but was always cheerful and pleasant despite his afflictions.
Funeral services, which were largely attended, were held last Sunday afternoon from the home, Rev. Alspaugh, pastor of the Lake Villa M. E. church, officiating. Frank Sherwood sang, "The Old Rugged Cross", which was Mr. Culver's favorite. He was carried to his last resting place in the Fox Lake cemetery.
