Gustavus A. Everts

At Fort Worth, Texas, on the 25th ult., died Judge G. A. Everts, younger brother of our late Old Dr. Everts, of this city. Judge Gustavus Everts lived a long time at Laporte and practiced law throughout the circuit, which then was about as large as a congressional district and was traveled by the judge and lawyers horseback. Porter county was a part of this northwestern circuit of the state, and Everts is remembered as about the most inclined to humor in the crowd of witty lawyers then attending court. In 1844 he moved to Texas, where he was a delegate to the convention in the cause of annexation of that independent state to the United States. He has since then been judge, and was a man of prominence and influence.
