Everts was orphaned and raised by his uncle, who started a watch repair business in Dallas and taught Arthur the jewelry trade.

E J Fry was a prominent businessman from Marshall, Texas (1845 – 1927), a sixth generation member of a notable Virginia family founded by Joshua Fry, and founder/owner of several businesses, including but not limited to, the Marshall Compress Co., Marshall Cartwheel and Foundry, Co., Southland Life Ins., Arthur A. Everts, etc.

They ran with fellow merchants like Herbert Marcus (Neiman Marcus), Eli Sanger (Sanger Dept. Store), and Edward Titche (Titche’s Dept. Store).

Arthur Everts Jewelers frequently provided the Texas State Fair with souvenir silver spoons depicting that year’s fair, in addition to other silver memento items for groups making honors to an individual, etc.
