The Shinton and Evans families belonged to our church, the English Congregational Church on Ridge St. I remember the man who owned the gas station by our football stadium and swimming pool well. To the best of my knowledge there are no Shintons or Evans of our generation left in town. I believe the gas station site is now a bank. It sits on 309 at the end of town as you are heading toward Coaldale. The street name is Patterson St.Both the Congregational Church on Ridge Street and the original church on Abbott St are closed so records that might have existed would be hard to find. Maybe a stop by the Mine Museum in Coaldale would find you someone with knowledge of where to look for some of the early records. I hope I am right and GR is still an easy walking area and you have a fruitful trip
