It took some doing, but I finally found the rest of my Bevans family back to the 3 brothers who came to America. I had recently been in contact with Yvonne Larsen about the Bevans/ Nix family and some of the data she had gave me an idea to search for a possible link to Bevans New Jersey. In doing so I was looking at the following web site and saw some names that jumped out. After looking closer found my line. I felt like a kid in a candy store LOL. The web site is The Elmwood Connection (there is a 2nd version of this site not sure what has changed) there are a few errors in this line sometimes using Her for his and his for her. Also they made the common mistake that our William is burried in Stevenson. He is buried in Bevans, Sussex, New Jersey. he does however have a headstone on the family site that stated he is buried in NJ. |
My line starts with #704 William F. Bevans (working backwards) who was the father of John Wade Bevans who was Married to my Grandmother Ruby Margaret Foster (who later married my grandfather Leo Roy Moore, Sr.)
next is # 228 William F. Bevans, Jr.
then # 38 James Frost Bevans
Then # 4 James Brown Bevans, Jr.
Then #1 James Brown Bevans Sr.
This site confirmed some things I had suspected that Cyrus Bevans and William were brothers. Also that Laburtis Bevans was our families Lee Bert (Bert) Bevans.
