JOHN EVANS DIES IN SOUTH COTTONWOOD

John Evans, 87 years old and a farmer of Utah since 1852 (should be 1862), died at 11:30 o'clock yesterday morning at his residence, 6058 South Winchester Street, South Cottonwood (now Murray), after an illness of some duration.

Mr. Evans was born in South Wales, January 1, 1830, and came to American, settling in New York state. He moved to Salt Lake City October 5, 1852 (should be 1862), and lived in this city (Salt Lake City) until 1881, when he settled at South Cottonwood.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Elizabeth H. Evans, and seven sons and daughters: William S. Evans and J. H. Evans of Blackfoot, Idaho; Mrs. Elizabeth H. Dansie, Lehman, Wyo.; T. H. Evans, T. R. Evans, and Mrs. Esther M. Trane, Union, Utah. He leaves forty grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

The funeral will be held at noon Friday at the residence.

COMMENT: The obituary doesn't mention the date of death; he died 25 Dec 1917. I have a copy of the obituary; assume it was published in the Deseret Newspaper, Salt Lake City, Utah on 26 Dec 1917.
