46 attend Everetts’ 100-year celebration
Forty-six out of 184 descendants of Claude and Lillie Everett held a family reunion on Sept. 6 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Everetts proving up on their homestead.
The reunion was held on part of Claude Everett’s property about 4½ miles north of Mancos in Montezuma County. The land has been continuously occupied by Everett family members since Claude and Lillie moved there from Beulah, Colo., in 1907. Descendants came from as far away as Thailand, feasted on a chuckwagon dinner prepared by Larry Everett, visited and learned about the history of the family.
Claude Everett served as Montezuma County Commission in the late 1940s and was well known and respected in the community.
