Notes

Note
Thomas Evans, fourth son of Owen Evans by his wife Mary Davis, was born May 21, 1737, and died March 13, 1810. He received a liberal estate under the will of his father, and was a man of prominence in this community. On November 25, 1754, he married Hannah Rees, the marriage presumably taking place at Christ Church, Philadelphia, where it is recorded. She was a daughter of Thomas and Mary Rees, and was born October 23, 1727, and died April 25, 1813, surviving her husband by a few years. Both were buried in Limerick Church grounds.

Children of Thomas and Hannah ‎(Rees)‎ Evans:

i. Owen Evans, born July 1, 1758; died June 23, 1812; married Eleanor Lane.

ii. Benjamin Evans, born October 12, 1760; died July 10, 1830; married about 1790, in North Carolina, Hannah, daughter of David and Hannah Smith; born July 3, 1767; died September 19, 1853, and both are buried in Friends Ground at Waynesville, Ohio, to which point he had removed from South Carolina. He was a man of wealth, and Judge O'Neall's "Annals of Newberry District, S.C.," published in 1839, accredits to Benjamin Evans the invention of the screw auger. His grandson, Dr. John Evans ‎(son of David and Rachel-Burnet Evans)‎, was born March 9, 1814; studied medicine; became professor in Rush Medical College, Chicago, Illinois; and was a founder of the Illinois General Hospital of the Lakes, and one of the projectors of the Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad, and for many years its managing director at Chicago. In 1853 he advocated the founding of the Northwestern University, and selected for its site a suburb of Chcago, which was afterwards named Evanston in his honor. He endowed the institution with $100,000. In 1862 he was appointed, by President Lincoln, Governor of Colorado, and took up his residence at Denver, becoming one of the most prominent men of Colorado. A lengthy sketch of his life is printed in "Nation Cyclopedia of American Biography," volume vi, page 445, and his portrait forms the frontispiece of that work.
