In 1755 Evan married Margaret Nivin. She was the daughter of William & Jennet Nivin.

Evan & Margaret had 10 children:

George, MD, d. 1822

During the Revolution he commanded the 2d Battalion of Chester Co, PA. Evan and his battalion fought in the battles of Trenton and Brandywine.

After the war Evan served in the Pennsylvania Assembly.

The Evans family was prominent in the early membership of this church. His parents and many other family Evans are buried in this cemetery.

Previously his marker could not be found but the photo that is supposed to be Evan's has recently been posted. (A flood in 1800 carried away many tombstones and fires destroyed church records, including grave location specifics.)
