      7. Phillip3 Evans (Thomas2, Nicholas1) was born June 17, 1759 in Rowan Co, NC, and died June 19, 1849 in Golden Grove, Anderson Co, SC. He married (1) Mary Charles 1782 in Surry Co, NC, daughter of James Charles and Sarah Halbert. She was born Abt. 1762, and died 1803 in Greenville Co, SC. He married (2) Nancy Hudson Abt. 1804 in SC. She was born April 13, 1782 in Greenville Co, SC, and died November 17, 1835 in SC. He married (3) Levica Unknown Abt. 1837. She was born 1782, and died July 15, 1838 in Golden Grove, Anderson Co, SC. He married (4) Grace King Holland November 11, 1838 in Anderson District SC. She was born August 1787 in MD, and died Aft. September 1850 in Anderson Co, SC.

Notes for Phillip Evans:
Phillip Evans was on the Surry Co, NC Census of 1786 and from his Revolutionary Pension Papers, he moved to Greenville District SC in 1789. He is listed on the SC 1790 Census.

Phillip Evans enlisted in 1780 in McDowell's Regiment, Burke Co, NC. He was in the King's Mountain Campaign and was injured in a fall from his horse. He did not directly engage in the battle itself. Later he assisted in escorting prisoners taken during the battle. He fought in the Battle of Cowpens (January 17, 1781).

I know from a 1794 deed involving the estate of James Charles (father of Mary Charles) that Phillip Evans was married to Mary Charles at that time. Phillip and Mary Charles had nine children. Phillip and Nancy Hudson had six children. No children were born to Phillip and Levica Evans and no children were born to Phillip and Grace King Holland. Phillip Evans was known to be the father of fifteen children.

The will of Phillip Evans was probated the 13th day of July, 1849, Will Book C p.295-298, Greenville Co, SC.

When Philip Evans died two of his daughters and their husbands, Caroline Matilda Evans m. Henry Sherman and Rebecca Crutcher Evans m. Nelson Dickerson, joined in a lawsuit attempting to prove that their father was not competent mentally when he made his will. However, the probate court of Greenville upheld the will. Philip's will very much favored his son, William Hudson Evans, and the other children were left very little. He did remember the widow of my Thomas (very little). I do have the transcriptions of the documents in regard to this matter. One thing that Henry Sherman stated was that he saw Philip very little "during the short time that he was married to his third wife". Philip's 2nd wife, Nancy Hudson, died 17 November 1835 and Levica was dead in 1838 after a short marriage "less than a year". Both wives obituaries sounded as if they had both endured great suffering and Nancy's stated that "the deceased had suffered great mental and bodily affliction for sixteen years". Philip married Grace Holland in 1839 and remained married until his death in 1849. He is buried on his plantation and sad to say a broken headstone leans against a tree to mark the plot. On the 1830 census he was listed with 44 slaves and by 1840 his slaves are reduced to 21. He probably had been giving some to his children as he was getting up in years.
