  • Notes 
    • Served in the siege of Plattsburg, NY during the War of 1812 and was awarded a medal by the US Congress for conspicuous gallantry in action. He was one "of about 30 boys, all between the ages of 16 and 21, who offered their services to the government, were accepted and they were enlisted for the full term of the war of 1812. During the seige of Plattsburgh, on the 11th of Sept, 1814, Ethan Everest was wounded in the leg by a British musket ball, which was never extracted, and the patriot carried it to his grave. The patriotism of these boys (Aiken's Volunteers), and their excellent service to their country, was so highly appreciated that Congress passed a vote of thanks to them, and ordered that each survivor be given a gun, into the stock of which was inlaid a silver plate handsomely engraved and which, in this case, bore the following legend: "By resolve of Congress, presented to Ethan Everest, for his gallantry at the siege of Plattsburgh." On a smaller plated, shield shaped, about the size of a silver half dollar, right behind the hammer of the lock, near where the hand grasps the stock, is engraved the date of the wound mentioned above as follows: "September 11, 1814". Military History and Reminiscences of the 13th Regiment of Illinois, page 572.

      After the death of Viney in 1862, Ethan moved from Minnesota to Atchison, Kansas to live with his son, Robert Ransom Everest.
