Sally (Everest) Case appears on p. 101 of DESCENDANTS OF ANDREW EVEREST OF YORK, MAINE (1955) by Winifred Lovering Holman. She was the eldest daughter of Capt. Zadock Everest (Saybrook, Conn. 5 March 1743/4-Addison, Vt. 30 April 1825) and his first wife Sarah Moss (New Milford, Conn. 5 July 1751-poss. Addison or Pawlet, Vt. [or vicinity] by 1778). I've been to Addison numerous times and recommend the Lake View Cemetery (on "Lake Street," the road in West Addison that winds along Lake Champlain. Whole rows of this fine cemetery are occupied by Everests. Among them is Zadock's tombstone of white marble (with urn & willow), which (a rare occurrence) lists the names and birthdates of all twelve of his children: "Here rests the remains of ZADOK EVEREST, Esq. who was born at Seabrook, Con. March 5th AD 1744. In the 4th year of his age, he moved with his Father Benjn. Everest to Salisbury, Con., where he lived until he was 21 years of age: In the fall of the same year; being AD 1765 he moved to Addison, Vt. where he lived until Arnold's defeat on Lake Champlain in AD 1776: at which time he Was driven from his home by the enemy In May AD 1785 after the close of the revolutionary war he moved back to Addison where he lived until his decease, much beloved and respected. He died April 30th AD 1825 in the 82nd year of his age, leaveing a widow and 12 children to mourn his death. He was a beloved husband and affectionate Farther: and an ornament to the Church. Children of the deceased: Louisa, Lorain, Anna, deceased; Sally, born Addison March 20, 1770; Wm., [born Addison] Sept. 24, 1771; Louisa, [born] Manchester [Vt.] Dec. 10, 1778; Zadok, [born] Pawlet Oct. 28, 1780; Dudley, [born Pawlet] Dec. 16, 1782; Udney H., [born] Addison Jan. 18, 1783 (should be 1785); Hiram, [born Addison] Oct. 27, 1786; Lorain, [born Addison] Nov. 20, 1790; Solomon, [born Addison] Oct. 18, 1788; Rhoda, [born Addison] June 10, 1793; Charles C., [born Addison] Aug. 15, 179- (should be 1795); Esther, [born Addison] Jan'y 15, 1798." [Miss Holman suspects that the "deceased" Louisa, Lorain and Anna were children by the first wife, since by his 2nd w. Sarah (Cook) Meacham, Zadock had daus. Lois/Louisa (Everest) Swift (1778-1860, later of Galesburg, Illinois) and Loraine (Everest) (Gilbert) Clark (1790-1865, later of Georgia, Vt.).]
Here is what Miss Holman has on Sally, Zadock's daughter: "SALLY [EVEREST], b. [Addison] 20 March 1770, d. unknown; m. about 1792, LOUDON CASE, perhaps son of Jonah and Ruth (Phelps) Case of Goshen, Conn., and Addison, and brother of Bissell Case, b. 30 May 1764, Goshen, who also settled in Addison, and had deeds with Zadock Everest. Loudon was a freeman, in Addison, 1790, and head of a family there in 1800: one male and one female, 26-45, two males and one female under 16. As Jonah Case had two males over 16 in 1790, Loudon may have been one of them; especially since "Bessel" is listed separately. Jonah [Case] built the first brick house there, in 1780, and also had a son, Loyal, and a dau. who m. Horatio Seymour of Middlebury, Vt. However, in 1797, another "Lowden" Case was moderator in Stowe, Vt. Possibly our Loudon d. in Salisbury, Vt.? Sally (Everest) Case lived many years in Rock Island, Illinois, states The New England Historical and Genealogical Register 49 : 205-206. Children (CASE), said to have had sons: (1) Asahel, b. 1793; Loudon, b. 1795; Charles, b. 1801; perhaps a daughter. Further research needed."
Here follows an ancestor table for Sally:

References: W.L. Holman, DESCENDANTS OF ANDREW EVEREST OF YORK, MAINE (1955), pp. 101, 90-100 (a detailed treatment of Zadock's life, land deeds, military service, etc. etc.), 43-52 esp. This is a splendid book, available in some large libraries. The ancestries of Sarah Moss, Hannah Jones, etc., practically leap from the pages of FAMILIES OF ANCIENT NEW HAVEN by Donald Lines Jacobus (Sarah herself is on p. 1229, see also pp. 236 (Bowers), 624 (French), 1219-20 (Moss), 1511-12 (Roberts). For Hannah Jones: same work, pp. 60 (Atwater), 1658 (Jones). FAMILIES OF EARLY GUILFORD, CONNECTICUT (1984) also contains material on some of these families (but beware the error on p. 331 where William Dudley Jr.'s wife Mary Roe is called Mary "Stow"). You may well wish to check these and other works for any silly errors of transcription on my part...
One of the best-known makers of wheelchairs is the Everest & Jennings Corp., co-founded in 1933 by Herbert Austin Everest (1885-post 1954), a great-great-grandson of Mrs. Case's brother William Everest.
Hope this is of use. You may very well have much more information on Sally (Everest) Case, who was a first cousin of my great-great-grandfather, David D. Everest (1799-1863). Best of luck!
