"Gurdon Evans, aged 71 years and 4 days died Aug. 12, 1891.
Prof. Evans was one of the most distinguished of the early students of Alfred University, having made very high attainments in some of the sciences. He was for several years one of the head teachers in DeRuyter Institute. The later years of his life were spent with his family in Alfred Centre, where he had a very pleasant home. He was a member of the First Alfred Church and maintained a uniform and upright life. He left a son and two daughters to mourn his loss, their mother having passed from this life a few years before him. His funeral services were conducted by his pastor, assisted by Pres. J. Allen, and were attended by a large congregation of friends. T. R. W."
