Thank you, Jane Debenport, for your careful reply to my question about the children of James H. and Margaret Elizabeth (Clancy/Capps) Everage. Following your comments about Daniel or William D. Everage (1873-1932), writer of gospel music, I have searched again for him in the various censuses posted at Ancestry.com, but I cannot find him in any of them, unless he is the W. D. Everidge, age 36, listed as a resident of Granger, Williamson County, Texas, in 1910, married to a woman named Lilla J., age. 45. The handwriting in this part of the census is simply awful! It's quite possible that the surname is spelled differently in different censuses; I've seen everything from my Everage all the way to Eurage, and it's hard to check them all.
I found at http://www.defenderoftruth.com/page14.html a reference to William D. Everidge in the context of a hymn. If you're interested, it's at the very bottom of the page. Other than this, I've found nothing online about him.
Meanwhile, I'll keep searching the various censuses.
By the way, in case you're interested, Margaret Clancy's first husband, William John Wesley Capps, died of disease at Cumberland Gap, Virginia, on 29 November 1862, in the Confederate Army (from Compton's Pioneer Families of Crenshaw County, Alabama, p. 15).
