George I. Evans, general merchant, Seymour, Wayne County, established his present business here in September, 1884, and by his close attention to the wants of his customers and his gentlemanly deportment has built up a good trade. He is a native of Walnut Township, Wayne County, born April 25, 1860, his father Aaron Evans, being one of the early settlers of Walnut Township. He was reared on his father's farm, and was subsequently engaged as a clerk for the firm of Conger & Michaels, with whom he remained three years. He was united in marriage to Cora L.
