Re:More photos posted to the genpcncfir site - Forbes Cemetery at
- Doni - It appears we are related along our Evans lines, which run
together at John Snowood Evans's grandfather Amos Evans (1763-1837,
gr-grandfather of your gg-grandfather Amos Evans, 1823-1888). The
earlier Amos Evans had a daughter Martha b.1805 who married my gg
grandfather Alfred Forbes (1806-1847). I have several other
connections with your Evans line: Artemissa's brother William J.
Evans (1824-1872) married my great-grand aunt Susan Caroline Forbes
(1835-1908) and they are both buried in the Evans-Forbes cemetery on
Falkland Hwy near my old homeplace. Another brother of Artimissa
Evans, Richard Evans (1816-1861), had a son, Gus Forbes Evans (1843-
1917), who raised my grandfather Gus Evans Forbes (1878-1951). They
are also both buried in the same Evans-Forbes cemetery. Offline, I
have sent you a photo of that cemetery and a genealogy report on John
Evans, said to be the common ancestor of most of the Pitt County
Thanks for responding!

- Cheryl - my research shows that, yes, it is the same Evans line you
refer to below, which I have confirmed back to John and those 3 sons
via several different sources. I'll send you the list of
descendants I have on this John Evans when I get back to my home
computer this evening. In return, I'd like to find out whatever
info you have on the same line, esp. if it includes names and
locations of residence in VA and/or dates, locations, names, etc of
that line's migration to NC.
The Evans, Forbes, and Tyson (Tison) families were so closely
intertwined in Pitt County in the late 1700's thru 1800's, that I
suspect they may have known each other in generations prior, and may
have migrated down from VA together in the late 1600's, stopping for
awhile in the Albemarle area before venturing to Bath & Beaufort
County where most of them show up in the mid-1700's, prior to Pitt
County's charter in 1761. I'd be very interested in whatever info
you may have on any of these families from mid-1700's and before.
