It was not from any desire, to make a display of literary talent, or be classed as an Author, that we were induced to collect the facts contained in this little volume.
But it was a labor of love, in order that the history of our forefathers might not be forever lost- that the story of their lives might be perpetuated and read by future generations.The idea of writing this historical sketch was first suggested, at a reunion of the family of Geo.
Everhart, (the great grand-son of Paul Everhart) when he was 75 years old, and all his sons and daughters, with their wives and husbands, had assembled at the homestead. It was with feelings of intense delight, that we sat and listened to the aged father, as he related his recollections of the long, long past.
It was then, and there, we resolved to put into a permanent form a history of the Everhart and Shower Families.How well we have succeeded in the resolution, we submit to the judgment of those who are also interested in the matter.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
