Re: Intro, Links, FPOC & Surnames NC
In Response To: Intro, Links, FPOC & Surnames NC ()
I just found your site today. I am so glad you to have found you. I live in Philadelphia. However, I am a decendent of Anthony and Martha Evans who lived in Meckenburg Va. His son, Cornelius Evans married Sara Jane Gallop in 1887 in Va. Sara was from NC. According to their marriage licence, he was 25, she was 21. I was able to trace her back to the slave schedule. I was unable to locate any information on him or his parents.
Sara and Cornelius had three children. He died and she remarried. No one knows how he died. I was able to locate a Cornelius Evans in Halifax NC. born in 1862. The age appears to be right. I obtained the info from the 1880 census.
perhaps you can help me since you are interested in the Evans surname. I realize alot of records were destroyed in Va. Perhaps they were from NC.
