I noticed you entry. There are a lot of names that are very close to several relatives of mine in both my parents families. I have a Martha Goode as marrying Thaddeus Holt in Halifax County, Virginia. I have that her brother was Mackerness Goode. Martha and Thaddeus Holt moved with the large extended Holt family to Baldwin and Putnam Counties Georgia between 1800 and 1805.

I am the direct descendant of John and Sarah Batte Evans. In 1814, two of John Evans's grandchildren gave despositions in a court case. They were living in Edgefield County, South Carolina. One was Batte Evans and I think the other was Thomas Evans. John Evans had a brother named Stephen. Stephen was born in 1703. Also, Stephen had a son named Stephen. One of John Evans's grandsons named Benjamin Evans lived in Lunenburg County, Virginia. I am a direct descendant from them. An Ann Harris married a Joel Estes. She was the daughter of Christopher Harris Sr. They lived in Henry County, Virginia before moving to Kentucky around 1800. In Kentucky, their daughter, Mary Ann Estes married the son of Benjamin Evans, named Elisha Evans. Elisha Evans and Mary Ann Estes are my ggggrandparents.

With all of these common last names I cannot find a single name in your posting that matches any of my relatives. Your Stephen Evans could have been Stephen Evans Jr. I am just starting to research the Evans family and am not very familiar with various Evans relatives.

I should point out that Lunenburg County, Virginia is an old county. Parts of Lunenburg County were the source of seven other counties in Virginia.
