Rebecca and her two younger sisters were three of 17 surviving children of the Mountain Meadows Massacre in UT, 9/11/1857. They were the children of Jesse and Mary Wharton Dunlap, who were slain in the massacre along with 118 other brave souls on the Fancher-Baker wagon train on their way from AR to CA. She was raised by her uncle after her return to Carroll Co., AR in 1859. She married John Wesley Evins and they raised their family in Calhoun Co., AR, where her youngest sister (Sarah E. Dunlap Lynch) also lived.
