Evert Frost-Watches and Jewelry

In the late 1890s and early 1900s, Everett (Evert) Frost and wife, Edna, lived in Spartansburg where he owned a watch and clock repair and jewelry business. His store was on Main Street.  Mr. Frost advertised in the Spartansburg Sentinel, in some creative ways.

Everett was raised in Little Cooley and had a clock shop in Riceville prior to the one in Spartansburg.  He and Edna had one child, a son Ivan who died at age 11 when the family had moved to Fredonia, NY.  The three are interred at Rose Hill Cemetery.   It seems that he was divorced and re-married (Bessie Sherlock) after leaving Spartansburg. He adopted Bessie’s 2 children: Dorothy (1916) and Lillian (1927).   Records from 1910, 1920 and 1930 show Edna having been a patient, including at Warren State Hospital, during the years following the death of her son.
