History of Floyd County 1882 Page 909 - 910

A. H. Evans
Was born in Steuben County, N. Y., Dec. 22, 1832. He was married Jan. 18, 1855, to Elizabeth Conrad, who was born in Hinsdale, Cattaraugus County, N. Y., Jan 7, 1830. There are two adopted children - F. D., born Feb. 23, 1855 and Hattie, born Feb 22, 1877. Mr. Evans came to Floyd County, Iowa, in 1867, and now has a fine farm of 100 acres on section 34, Rockford Township. He is a Republican in his political views and has held the office of School Director and Road Supervisor several terms. In religious belief he is a Methodist. He enlisted Feb. 2, 1864, in the First New York Independent Battery, and was discharged June 23, 1865, in Syracuse, N. Y. He was in several hard fought battles, among them the battle of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court House, and Cold Harbor, Va. In 1856, while living in New York, some fallen timber near his house took fire, and as it was a very dry time, and a strong wind blowing, they were unable to save the house or contents. His family were obliged to take refuge in a well nearby, in which there was not much water. They threw their bed clothes and carpets into the well, but were obliged to dip water and pour on them, as the fire brands were blown in on them. In this way they spent three hours, twelve feet below the earth's surface. The fire-fiend seems to have a special spite against him, for in 1866, while living in Cattaraugus County, N. Y., he had his storehouse and all his goods destroyed by fire.
