    Where's your family from?  Obviously I'm from the Pittsburgh area - you?  

    And oh, if you're somehow related to an 18th century Revolutionary War veteran named "Evan Evans," we are most definitely related :)

      Any participation in the Revolution though there is a "hero" (seems he shot a redcoat General in the Battle of King's Mountain) of sorts in the Jones' line. I haven't had a chance to integrate my cousin's work on the Jones' line into my tree but I plan to soon and that may show our lines crossing. Right now I only know where the Evans line direct to me came from which was Maryland to Missouri to Texas to Oklahoma to California (finally! haha). Like I said in my other reply to you down thread, there were some large families in those first few generations and I don't know where the non-direct individuals wandered off to. Since PA is right next to Maryland, the chances of some of my relatives going there in the first half of the 18th c. are good I'd imagine.

      If you'd like to communicate off Kos so to speak, send me a message via Kosmail and I'll give you my personal email. That way we can compare notes somewhat  more easily. :)
