Re: Tabitha (Evans) Sawyer
In Response To: Re: Tabitha (Evans) Sawyer ()
I am also a descendant Solomon and Tabitha Sawyer. I have evidence that identifies Tabitha Evans parents as FPOCs Benjamin Evans (1790-1843) and Lucinda (Lucy) Mitchell (1788-1886) They were married in Granville NC then migrated to the Stokes/Surry/Forsyth County area of NC. I'm also a descendant of Ben and Lucy Evans through their another daughter Anna Evans.
Benjamin Evans first appears in the 1810 Census in Stokes County. They were married in Granville County on August 1, 1811.
In 1917, several of the Sawyer and Evans children and grandchildren gave sworn affidavits regarding their ancestry in an attempt to document Indian ancestry for the Guion-Miller Cherokee rolls. All we're denied because they couldn't prove their ancestors were listed on previous Cherokee rolls. Transcripts are available on Fold3.com.
Most of records for them are in Stokes and Forsyth counties. Other than the marriage record, I've been unable determine the relationship between Ben and Lucy Evans to other Evans and Mitchell persons in Granville County. I also haven't found any other record of them in Granville County NC.
