I am one of the tenth generation of the Burwell Patrick Evans family. Burwell was born 1794 in NC. My file contains over 22,100 names of family members in some way connected to me. I have been gathering information and history of my family for about eighteen years. Starting a couple years before my mother died.
This is an on going project, a few years ago Ray Evans, Jr. and I had our DNA tested and as a result found out that we are in fact related. His line is from Burrell Patrick Evans born 1819 and mine from Burwell Patrick Evans born 1794. I now believe we are decendants of Thomas Evans born about 1740 and his death was about 1804 in Caswell Co., NC. I have a copy of his will in my files.

I know there must be some errors included in the file. If you notice an error in your family infomation please let me know. If you need any information please let me know, most of my documents are scanned and are electronic and easy to send via e-mail.
If you are researching this family I hope you find some information that helps you!
Other Family names I am researching are Donathan, Bandy, Beam, Keaster, Ritter, Casteel, and Blevens, but there are many more in my data base!! As of 05-12-2007, There are 3612 different surnames, 22,116 individuals in the file and adding more almost everyday.
I have just recently added several hundred family members. Many in the Beam family line!
I am willing to share any information I have and would love to see and be able to share information you may have. If you need information on other family members, e-mail me and I will send you what information I have by file attached to e-mail.
Please feel to call or E-Mail me at any time. I will try to post any new and updated information as soon as I receive it.
