My name is Lynne Haase Evans. My family lines include Haase, Koenigsfeld, Osier, and Quinn. All of these families ended up in Iowa in the 1800's.
The family lines of my husband, Paul Evans, that I am researching include Evans, Sanders, Halford, Understahl, and Pope. These families were in Illinois in the early 1800's. Most trace back to NC, TN, and KY. His Evans line is from Jackson County, Ohio.

    Martha Stark was the granddaughter of Willie Parham from Granville County, NC. Martha married Seth Thomas Pope of Fayette County, Illinois. Another granddaughter, Rebecca Parham married Jonathan Adkisson Halford in Fayette County. I have done extensive research at the North Carolina State Archives and in Granville County but have been unable to find documentation of Willie's parents or siblings.

    This is a report that was sent to me. It contains excellent documentation and supporting arguments that clear up many mistakes with this family. I have updated my own Halford file to reflect the information contained in this report.
