THIS NEW BLOG is for the descendants of Abel Evans (1812-1866) and Mary Jones Evans (1827-1895). It's purpose to to explore their ancestors, their siblings, and their cousins.
Many Evans' and Jones' family members are discovering new sources. The sources often support the assertions on family trees. For this we give thanks to the diligent genealogists who preceded us. But sometimes, often enough, family researchers find evidence that leads us in other directions.
I created this blog with the expectation and hope that those of us doing this work can share our research, explore possibilities, tender our conclusions for critique and discussion, and mutually support each other as we strive to understand and document this family.
We are all intelligent; we will sort this out. But no one person is smarter than a roomful of people. This blog is that room. I hope that many of the Evans and Jones descendants will want to join us. Doing it together; that's what will make the work easier and more pleasant.
