Absalom Evans
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 3, 1816
North Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 27, 1908

Husband of Catharine Ader.

He is the son of Joseph and Mary L.A. Sauers Evans.
Absalom bought a plot in Brown's Wonder Cemetery but his obituary says he is in Union Cemetery (Old Union). There is no record of him at either cemetery and no stone at either. Because the trustee has a plot for him at Brown's Wonder, I can assume he is next to his wife.
