Owen V. Evans was born about 1821 in Ohio. He married Elizabeth Shelton, born 31 Mar 1820 in Brown County Ohio, on 1 Oct 1843 in Brown County, most likely by her father, Thomas Shelton, the famous Marrying Squire of Aberdeen.
While I know Elizabeth's family history, I haven't been able to find the family of Owen V. Evans. In the 1850 census, Owen and Elizabeth lived in Aberdeen and Owen worked as a carpenter. In that same census, Griffith Owen, son of John Evans, also worked as a carpenter. I suspect that there is a connection to the family of John Evans, but so far haven't found a link.
If you know the history of John Evans b. 1770 in Maryland, or know who might be the parents of Owen Evans, please post here. Thank you!
