His death certificate records William Evertt Jones, age 54 years 4 months 2 days, born 1 Feb 1892 in Rowan Co., died 3 June 1946 in Morehead, Rowan Co., Ky, occupation carpenter, married, husband of Minnie Jones age 50, father Frank Jones, mother’s maiden name Riddle, both born in Rowan Co., cause of death lobar pneumonia, informant Minnie Jones, burial in Bradley Cemetery.
I was surprised to find this reference to Minnie, since I thought that he was married to Mote McClain, who survived him. Either Mote and Everett were divorced some time after 1930 and he remarried, or else she also went by Minnie.
