Everett and Cora Sampey
The house found on Sampey Road, was originally the tack house for the animals owned by Everett D. and Cora Sampey, who arrived in Taylorville in 1906.
After their large two-story home burned to the ground, the family would move into this structure and call it home.
The Sampeys were charter members of the Methodist Church.
Everett died at age 57, but Cora, a college graduate and piano teacher, lived well into her 80s, still delivering milk from her dairy cows to local residents.
