"William Evans (1770/80) and Alcy (---) of Wilkes, Ashe and Alleghany County, North Carolina

"The author (Marty Grant) is not related to William Evans as far as can be proven. It is possible (but not too likely) that he is related to my ancestor William Evans (c1813).

"William Evans was born ca 1770/80 (per census analysis) presumably in North Carolina. I don't know what county he was born in, but he lived in Wilkes and Ashe County, NC from the 1790's on. He may have been born in that same region.

"I have not identified his parents, but there was a Theophilus Evans who may be his father or at least his brother. William did witness one of his deeds in Wilkes County.

"William would have been between 10 and 20 by the time of the 1790 census, but I did not find him listed as a head of household in Western North Carolina. Theophilus Evans was the only one of their surname listed in Wilkes County at that time and he did have 3 males over 16 (born before 1774) in his household, and two under 16 (born ca 1774/90). One of these five is probably William Evans.

"On 29 Jan 1796 William Evans and Theophilus Evans Jr witnessed a deed from Theophilus Evans (their father?) to Jesse Reves for land on Little Elk Creek. (Wilkes Co, NC Deed Book D page 100 from Wilkes County, North Carolina Deed Books D, F-1 & G-H 1795-1815 by Mrs. W. O. Absher.) (Note: This book can be purchased from Amazon.com)

"William Evans apparently married someone in the 1790's, presumably in Wilkes County (now Ashe County), North Carolina. I have found a widow in later records named Alcy ---, whom I believe to have been William's wife. She was born ca 1776/77 (per 1850 census) in North Carolina, perhaps Wilkes County. I don't know what her maiden name was. There is some belief that Alcy was Cherokee, but so far I've seen no proof of that. There may be some evidence though, but I don't know what it is.

"On 20 Jul 1799 Nathaniel Judd Sr sold 200 acres to William Evans Powell for 25 pounds, being on the waters of Reddis River and Lewis Fork. Witnesses were John Calloway, Rowland Judd and John Judd. At first I thought this was "William Evans", but it does say "William Evans Powell" in the published version. I have not seen the original. This is clearly not the same person as William Evans. (Wilkes Co, NC Deed Book C-1 page 116 from Wilkes County, North Carolina Deed Books A-1, B-1, C-1 1778-1803 by Mrs. W. O. Absher.) (Note: This book can be purchased from Amazon.com)

"In 1799 Ashe County was formed from Wilkes County, including the section where the William's probable brother Barnabas Evans family lived, but it does not appear that William lived in that area just yet.

"I was unable to find William Evans on the 1800 census. His supposed brother Barnabas was listed in Ashe County, but I was unable to find William, Theophilus Sr or Theophilus Jr, though all were around in the late 1790's according to Wilkes County deeds. One of William's children (John-c1807) listed his birth place as Virginia on the 1860 census. This could mean that William and family were in Virginia in 1800 and, unfortunately that census is lost.

"By 1810, William had joined his probable brother Barnabas Evans in Ashe County. They were not listed near each other in 1810 but they were near each other later on (by 1830 anyway). William was listed between A. Williams and B. Ward.

"William Evans was listed on the 1815 tax list for Ashe County in Captain Maxwell's Company near his brother Barnabas. He was taxed for 200 acres valued at $200, and for 1 poll (himself, presumably).

"I was unable to find William Evans in 1820 in Ashe County (or elsewhere). His brother Barnabas Evans was not found either. I don't think they moved away for I also have other "missing" relatives in 1820 Ashe County. I think the census taker just did a poor job that year and left out quite a few people.

"By 1830 William and the others were "back" in Ashe County. He was listed next to his presumed brother Barnabas Evans.

"William Evans apparently died in the 1830's in Ashe County, North Carolina.

"His widow Alcy was not listed on the 1840 census, but someone her age was living with Abraham Evans (1800/10) that year and I think that was probably Alcy but can't be totally sure.

"Alcy Evans was still in Ashe County for the 1850 census. She was head of household, but two Evans and a Hill were living with her. The two Evans were probably her children and the Hill possibly a grandchild.

"I did not find Alcy Evans in 1860 so I assume she died in the 1850's or possibly moved away.

"In 1859 Alleghany County was formed from the section of Ashe County where this family resided.
Children of William and Alcy (---) Evans. William and Alcy had quite a few children per the various census records but only John and Peggy are proven (more or less, by being with her in 1850). Other researchers (mostly Charles B. Respass and Elizabeth Caulder) have shared a listing of children for William and Alcy which includes the two I already identified. Elizabeth says these children are proven, but I don't yet know the source for it. They do fit based on circumstantial evidence so the list does seem accurate to me.

"Unknown Son (1810/15)

"Unknown Son (1815/20) Barnabas Evans (c1818)

"Unknown Son (1820/25) Abram Evans (c1821)

"Unknown Son (1794/1800). William Evans had an apparent son this age. William was not found in 1800. He was home in 1810, aged 10-15 (born ca 1794/1800). William was not found in 1820. By 1830 this child was not home with William, so probably married or dead by then.

"This could be James Evans (c1797) who was listed on the 1830 census in Ashe County, though it is equally possible that James is a son of Barnabas Evans (c1769) instead. He is the only suspect I have though that fits here, but since he fits both William and Barnabas, I can't say which he belongs to. James did name a daughter "Alcy" so that me be a clue that he is William and Alcy's child.

"Other researchers show James to be a son of William and Alcy.

"Unknown Son (1800/10). William Evans had an apparent son this age. He was home in 1810, aged "under 10 (born ca 1800/10). William was not found in 1820. By 1830 this child was not home with William, so probably married or dead by then.

"This could be William Evans Jr (c1809) who was next to William Sr in 1830, in fact, I think this must be the one, but have no solid evidence, but the circumstantial evidence is strong enough.

"Other researchers do show this William (1809) to be a son of William and Alcy. I don't know the proof, but it does fit.

"John Evans was born ca 1806/07 (per 1850 census) presumably in Ashe County, NC. He was apparently with his parents in 1810 (aged "under 10", born ca 1800/10). William was not found in 1820. In 1830, John seems to be home with his parents, aged 20-29 (born ca 1800/10). I did not find him in 1840. In 1850 he was with his mother in Ashe County ("John", age 47, born NC).

"John Evans married Nancy Dickson on 1 Mar 1855 in Ashe County. She was born ca 1812/13 in North Carolina, presumably Ashe County. I don't know who her parents were. I'm not sure if Dickson was her maiden name or if she was widowed from a Mr. Dickson because in 1860 there was a young Dickson child with them, perhaps hers from a previous marriage.

"They were in Ashe County for the 1860 census. They were the only Evans left in Ashe County. All the others had moved away, though several were in Alleghany County which was formed from Ashe in 1859. This census listed John's birth place as Virginia. If true, that could explain where William Evans family was hiding in 1800.

"They were not in Ashe County for the 1870 census, but in neighboring Alleghany County with the other Evans families. In fact, they were only a few houses from the widow of Abraham Evans (c1820), a possible brother of John's.

"I was unable to locate John and Nancy in 1880. I did find a Nancy Evans, aged 58 in Ashe County in Chestnut Hill. She was by herself, but listed as married. This could be John's wife though the age is wrong. ** I don't have this entry typed up yet.

"Unknown Daughter (1800/10). William Evans had an apparent daughter this age. She was home in 1810, aged "under 10 (born ca 1800/10). William was not found in 1820. By 1830 this child was not home with William, so probably married or dead by then.

"This is probably Elizabeth Evans, born ca 1800/01 (per 1850 census) who married John Hill. I don't have any proof that she is a child of William and Alcy, but she fits, and she did name a daughter "Alcy" and Evans researchers include her here.

"This is probably Nancy Evans, born ca 1802/03 (per 1850 census) who married James Pugh. I don't have any proof that she is a child of William and Alcy, but she fits, and Evans researchers include her here.

"Unknown Daughter (1800/10). William Evans had an apparent daughter this age. She was home in 1810, aged "under 10 (born ca 1800/10). William was not found in 1820. By 1830 this child was not home with William, so probably married or dead by then.

"This is probably Mary "Polly" Evans, who married Joseph Roop. I don't have any proof that she is a child of William and Alcy, but Evans researchers include her here. I wasn't able to find Joseph and Mary on the 1850 census.

"Margaret "Peggy" Evans was born ca 1811/12 (per 1850 census) presumably in Ashe County, NC. She was apparently with her parents in 1830, aged 15-19 (born ca 1810/15). I did not find her in 1840. In 1850 she was with her mother in Ashe County ("Peggy", age 38, born NC).

"She was not found in 1860. There is a marriage record in Ashe County dated 3 Dec 1853 for Margaret Evans and John Adams. I'm pretty sure it must be this same Margaret, but I have not yet found them on the 1860 census in order to confirm it.

"Unknown Son (1810/15). William Evans had an apparent son this age. William was not found in 1820. This child was apparently home in 1830, aged 15-19 (born ca 1810/15).

"I don't know who this might have been. None of the Evans listed in 1850 Ashe County fit this age group.

"Unknown Son (1815/20). William Evans had an apparent son this age. William was not found in 1820. This child was apparently home in 1830, aged 10-14 (born ca 1815/20).

"This could be David Evans (c1819) who was in Ashe in 1850 and Alleghany in 1860. He did name his oldest son "William." Another possible match is Barnabas Evans (c1818). Other researchers show Barnabas as this son. He does fit, but I don't know what the proof is that he does belong here.

"Unknown Son (1820/25). William Evans had an apparent son this age. This child was apparently home in 1830, aged 5-9 (born ca 1820/25).

"This could be Abram Evans (c1821) who was in Ashe in 1850 and Alleghany in 1860. Other researchers confirm that Abram does belong in this family, though I haven't seen the proof yet...."

4. E-mail; 5 Aug 2013; Daniel Bingamon, Kings Mill, OH.
"...Allie (Ollie) or spelled Aley in the census, the 'e' was mistaken as a 'c', It's possible that Aley's name is handed down from her Cherokee Grandmother Nionne Ollie. It's entirely possible that she was a daughter of John "Young Tassel" Watts of the Chickamauga Lower Cherokee. Should this be verified properly, the finding of this are enclosed in a PDF file. Cherokee's focus more on maternal lineage and so this would put her in the Paint clan. If anyone has something to document this, I would surely appreciate it. BTW (By the way) -- This also brings another thing: John "Young Tassel" Watts had a nickname, "Captain John". It is entirely possible that he was involved in the Jenny Wiley captivity. There is a person in the story with such a name. John became Chief of the Cherokee a year later just after the death of Dragging Canoe.."

Richard was born in England and married Annie Belcher. The former fact has
not been proven and the latter appears erronrous. All deeds and other records
in which the wife of Richard is mentioned, her name is given as Elizabeth,
(Maybe her name was Elizabeth Ann Belcher) including a sale of property in
Cherterfield County in 1763. Her last name was probably Belcher, as given,
since other references also point to the relationship through the Belcher
line; however, no marriage record has been located. The children of Richard
and Elizabeth were: John (married Nancy Davidson); James (married Margaret
Stinson); Richard, Jr (Married Isabel Ferguson); Chloe (married first David
McComas and probably second, David Lusk); Micajah (married Naomi_____);
