I am a descendent of:
George Evetts (EST. 1723-1752 to EST.1777-1837)

Samuel Givens Evetts 1774,N.C. - May1850, Austin county, Texas
married abt 1800 Smith County, TN
Susannah Haynie

James Harrison Evetts (1806, Smith Co., TN - March 8, 1856, Booneville, Brazos, TX)

I know James was married at least three times. Once in TN. to an unknown person & I believed had at least two children by her.
He and three brothers & dad came to TX to fight for independence from Mexico. He had a blacksmith shop at Washigton-on-the Brazos.
The Texas Declaration of Independence was signed in a blacksmith shop in that town. Being more than one blacksmith shop in town, we do not know if it was his or not. In Texas, he married Julian Price. And then an Arsenia Williams (Millican). He & his last wife ran a ferry across the Brazos River at some point near Washington-on-the-Brazos. He had children by all the wives.

William, Thomas & Samuel are his brothers.

I would like to communicate with other descendents.

Susan Haney Evetts who married William Moorhead is James Harrison's daughter and my grgrgrandmother. She was one of the very first school teachers in Texas.
