I am also researching the Evelands.I have found a Ferguson Eveland on the 1850 Census for Fishingcreek Twp, Columbia County, PA. He is listed one of eight children of John and Susan Eveland.I have also found where he enlisted in the army for service in the Civil War, on June 19, 1863. That is all the information that I have.Hope it helps. I am looking for a Peter Eveland who married a Jane Golder also in Col. Co. PA. If you have any info on him it would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.
