"The Welsh within the bounds were...JENKIN DAVIS, EVAN DAVIS, my father's family, JAMES DAVIS, JOHN DAVIS, (another) JOHN DAVIS (New York), JOHN LOT DAVIS, DAVID DAVIS..." -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sarah Davis pg. 15 THE EVANS FAMILY by Robert Alton Evans (Lewis' son) January 1963 Patriot, Ohio "I have been asked by a relative and friend to write some facts on the life of my Grandpa, J.L.W. EVANS. These notes are things I have been told and what I knew about him while he lived during my boyhood days. As I remember the story, he came to this country with his parents from Wales in the year 1840; and they settled near Wales (Centerpoint), Ohio. He was six years of age then. He later got enough formal education to teach district school as a start in life. A short time later he managed to buy a saw mill and went into the lumber business and we can say was quite successful when the rebellion was fought about the year 1862. He was married to a beautiful Welsh girl, SARRAH DAVIS, who came from Wales with her parents a short time after he did. When Morgan made his raid and came close to Wales or Centerpoint (as it is now called), Grandma was taking care of $5,000 of their money. When old Morgan took my great-grandpa's good horses out of his barn and put plugs in their place, Grandma saw that something had to be done with this money----so she put it in the cook stove to hide it.Well, she forgot about it,and baked a pan of bread in the oven. Later, she thought about the money!!! As it turned out, the money wasn't burned and they spent it for the home in which they later raised their family. Grandma said it was certainly a scare for her!" After Grandma SARRAH, his wife passed away he started to fail in health. Until his death he attended church and clung to the faith and kept belief in his all wise Creator." If this is your Sarah, let me know, and I will scan and send you the full story. It is 5 pages long, and extremely interesting. He mentions his Grandpa was mason, he describes the kinds of crops his Grandpa had, how he harvested them, and his Grandpa's love for livestock animals. ----April.
