Everts Township

Everts Township, organized July 22, 1879 was named in honor of Rezin Everts and his son, Edmund A. Everts, pioneers of this township. A biographic sketch of the latter, contributed by E. E. Corliss in the History of Otter Tail county, notes that he was born in Carroll county Illinois, November 12, 1840; came to Minnesota in 1855 with his parents, who settled in Winona county; served in the Second Minnesota regiment during the civil war; settled as a homestead farmer in section 27 of this township in the spring of 1871; removed to Battle Lake village in 1881, and was a merchant there until his death, March 9, 1915.
