I am researching the family of William H. Evans b. 1825 in Tennessee. He mar. Elizabeth Jane Ruggles on Sept. 11, 1851 in Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa. The only bit of info. I have on William H. Evans is that he was registered on the GREAT REGISTER OF SISKIYOU COUNTY, CA. He signed the register on 1888 and was listed on the census of Siskiyou County, CA on 1890. He was also listed on the obit. of his father, Samuel Franklin Evans who died in 1888 and is bur. at Ft. Jones, Siskiyou County, Ca. He was not listed on his mother's obit. Nancy Jane Locke Evans who died in 1893. William H. Evans was my Great Grandfather. I was told he went out west on a Gold Mining expedition and apparently died somewhere out west, possibly in a gold search in Alaska or maybe Canada. I was curious if he was involved in the Klondike Gold mining search. I have for years been trying to locate this person, as to when he died, and where he was buried. He apparently had 7 children: Nancy who died in infancy, Sarah Adaline Evans Collett; Mary Jane "America" Evans Collett; Laura Evans; Ellen (Ella Evans) Vulgamott; William Oliver Evans (my grandfather); Olivia (Olive) Evans who died in 1909 and is bur. in the Bluepoint
cemetery, Jefferson County, Iowa. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
