THE DESCENDANTS 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 Fryeburg, Maine.

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 edition.

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.
