There is no mention of a James Everage.
Margaret Elizabeth Capps Everage had brothers Alfred Jobe(AJ) and Daniel Clancy. Daniel reared a large family in Butler (later Crenshaw) county AL. A J was in Pike (later Crenshaw co) After the War between the States, AJ brought his family to TX. I descend from that group. They came first to Grimes co in 1869 - then moved to Limestone co before the 1880 census.
According to THE CLANCY FAMILY by Margie Nelson "Margaret Elizabeth Clancy was born c 1833. She first married William John Wesley Capps on 21 Apr 1858. According to US Census Records and Thomas Compton, they had three children - Stewart Capps born about 1859, Jane Capps born about 1860, and Mary Capps born about 1861. Margaret Elizabeth's husband died, and she married a man by the name of Everage. She had at least two more children by Mr. Everage: Sumpter Everage born about 1870 and Daniel Everage born about 1873. I am pretty sure this the the William D. Everage (b. 1873, d. 1932) a writer of gospel music, such as the music for "Beyond the Land of Parting" and "O Happy Day, to name a few. It was an accepted fact that "Dan Everage" of gospel music fame, was a close relative. He would have been Grandpa Wren's first cousin [Lorenzo "Wren" was the son of A.J. Clancy -Jane]...certainly making him a close relative. In 1880 Margaret Elizabeth was living in Monroe co AL. According to Capps family information supplied by Thomas Compton, this family moved to TX after 1880."
I hope this helps tie your family together.
