    Notes 
    • Thomas was an orphan taken in by his grandfather. His mother married a Catholic and was disowned, but the mother and her husband died. Young Thomas and sister Margaret were taken in by the grandfather and the name changed back to Evans from McNaughton. Apparently Margaret traveled to Canada with Thomas and Mary Anne....but I think she was married.

      Thomas owned 100 acres , 3rd concession, pt.29


      Although census information lists Chris' parents as both born in Canada, Chris' daughter, Eva, states in her manuscript that her Grandfather Evans was from "southern Ireland and always spoke with a heavy brogue and thus her father spoke with an Irish brogue also, although it became fainter with time. When excited or emotional the brogue always became thicker. Tom, Sr. was dark in hair color with blue eyes and shorter in stature. His German wife was tall, slender and blonde."
