OF DAVID EVANS of Charlestown,
Massachusetts is a genealogy including the Adams, Eastman, Hill,
Osgood, Stickney, Swan and Walker families among others. Originally
published in 1893 and written by S. A. Evans, this book traces
his branch of the Evans family starting with David Evans in 1763.
This genealogy also traces families who intermarried with the
Evans family as far back as the 1600s. Genealogical information
contains birth, marriage, baptism and death dates and the places
these events took place as often as possible. Military service
records from the French and Indian Wars through the Civil War
are given for many family members. This genealogy traces branches
of the Evans family and related families living in Massachusetts,
New Hampshire and Maine from the 1600s through 1893. Some branches
of the families which relocated in states other than those of
New England are also mentioned. Biographical sketches are included
for both members of the Evans family and related families. Some
of these sketches include excerpts from letters and journals.
A brief historical background is given for some of the towns
the Evans family help settle. Prominent among these towns is
This CD contains two versions
of the Evans book. The original edition
contains only the original text in the book written by S.A. Evans.
The original edition was first published in 1893. Each page is
exactly as it appeared in that edition.
The revised edition has been greatly expanded. Gravures, steel engravings,
tintypes and lithographs are included of some of the people and
places mentioned. Some of the biographies given have been expanded.
Excerpts have been included from some books mentioned in the
original text such as Belknap's New Hampshire. Handwritten
footnotes by S.A. Evans are included. They were not in the original
edition. These were actually written by him in the margins of
the edition I used. Photographs of some of the Evans family and
some of the places mentioned are included. Some graphics of original
documents - letters, etc. - are included from the Revolutionary
War through the Civil War. There is a section with information
on some of the Evans burial plots. Links are given to the societies
for the Revolutionary War and the Civil War which members of
the Evans Family are qualified to join. These include the DAR
and the SAR. Biographies are given for some members of more recent
generations of the Evans Family that were not given in the original
Evans gave quite a bit of Civil
War background in his book and included in our edition are over
25 Civil War photos from the book The Civil War Through The Camera by Professor Henry W. Elson, which
was published in 1912. Two of the photographs are of Generals
named Hill. Because much of the original Evans book centered
around the Civil War one section contains background information
on the war to better understand the places, people, battles,
and events Evans is referring to.
