I'm attempting to organize a "Descendants of George Evans" Family Reunion in or around Nashville NC in the summer of 2012. As of the date of this post, "Summer 2012" is only 18 months away. It would be a wonderful experience to meet the living descendants of George Evans and for us to honour him along with his two wives Letha Ann Mitchell and Emma Wiggins Allen and their descendants at this reunion.

Me: I am the great grandson of Jesse White Evans. Jesse was one of the sons of George and Emma Wiggins Allen.

According to the information that I have gathered, George Evans was born 1836 in Franklin, NC. He married Letha Ann Mitchell on May 6, 1860 in Nash County, NC. The children born from this union were: Lousanna Evans , Mary Evans , Rebecca Evans , Geo T. Evans , Leathy Ann Evans , Clora Ann Evans , John Henry Evans , and Persa Evans . It appears that George may have become a widower in the late 1870's and subsequently married Emma Wiggins Allen . As a result of their union, the following children were born: Jessee White Evans, Letha Evans, George S. Evans , Joseph Evans , David Evans , and Willie R. Evans . The families lived in or around Nashville NC.

I have gathered information from and met many of the descendents of David Evans from a family reunion that was held in Spring Hope in the year 2000. I'm hoping that all of the descendents of George Evans who are still alive today can be gathered at a reunion in the summer of 2012.

If you are a descendant of George Evans or have information regarding him, please reply to this post. I would be delighted to correspond with you.
