"Lemmy" (Brinkley) Everhart is likely buried in a now unmarked grave at Midway Methodist Church, Midway, Davidson County, NC.  William Everhart is buried there along with his second wife, Eliza Jane Berrier Hill (b. 1844 to 1918). This second marriage took place in 1873.  William's parents are both buried at the Midway Church.

There was a Nicholas Brinkle (appears to be of German descent with last name being pronounced as Brinkley in English) in Rowan County in 1790.  Two other "Brinkles" appear in the 1800 census (Caspar and Christian).  Nicholas disappears in 1800 census.  Casper appears to have died in the 1830's but is not listed in 1810 census.  Christian is listed in the 1810 census.  This does appear to be a different line from the above.

Frances Brinkley appears in the 1790 census in Gates County, NC.  She is likely to have been widowed before that date.  Also living in Gates County in 1790 were Josiah, Joseph and Elisha Brinkley.
