Claude Everett and Lillie Sellers Everett were both born in 1884 and married in Beulah, Colorado in 1905. They came to the Mancos valley and homesteaded their ranch in 1915. They had nine children, expanded their ranch and were known for helping their neighbors and community.
Currently, the fifth generation lives on the ranch. The original two-story house burned in 1942, however, a portion of this house is built into the current house. The ranch continues to use the original barns and outbuildings, flood irrigates using the original ditches, farms hay and raises cattle as it did over 100 years ago.
