John Evans was born in SW Pennsylvania when the area was in dispute between Pennsylvania and Virginia.

He moved to Venango County, PA early in life and started the first regular newspaper there. He also served as Postmaster, County Treasurer,County Sheriff and Colonel of the Militia.

He died in 1871. His burial site is unknown. Best guess is Pioneer Cemetery in Franklin, Venango, Pennsylvania but this is unverified because there is no complete record for that cemetery. However, it was the only known cemetery in Franklin, PA at the time of his death.
