The ELISHA J. EVANS Family Home Page

Updated September 5, 2000

Welcome to the " ELISHA J. EVANS Family Home Page." I'm dedicating this family page to the research of my grandfather Elisha J. Evans, his parents, (names unknown) his two wives, his sibilings (names unknown) and his descendants. Elisha was born in Nashville Tennessee on January 18, 1848 and died February 9, 1945 in Amarillo Texas. He married his first wife, Laura Mills about 1878 in northern Texas. Laura may have died giving birth to their only child, a daughter, named ... Alice Laura Evans, born: 9/24/1879 and died 10/15/1966 in Amarillo Texas. Alice had no known children and was married to Benjamin Merchant when she died. Elisha re-married on/or about October 8, 1887 to Amanda Isabel Sams (my grandmother) in the Fort Worth Texas area. Amanda was born: December 25, 1865 in Roanoke, Denton Co. Texas and is thought to have died December 3, 1923 in Wichita Falls Texas. Their children were: John Lee, born: 9/15/1888 ... Joseph, born: 2/17/1890 ... Stella, born: 3/22/1893 ... Henry Clay, born: 6/19/1894 ... Sonora Gladys, born: 12/22/1896, and my father: ... Robert Jackson Evans, (my father) born: 10/22/1899. "John Lee" married Annie Ellison in Gainesvill Texas and had a daughter, Orpha Ray, born: 10/23/1919. Orpha Ray currently lives in Gainesville Texas. I've come to a dead-end in my family's history and have been unable to find any other information. I desperatly need, and would appreciate, any help from anyone out there that has any information of any kind about the persons I've named. Please write, call or e-mail me any time. I need to find a clue or piece of information that will set me in the right direction. Thank you for any help you may be able to give. Please review the reports below and visit us often ...
