There is probably no connection, but I thought I would send this regardless.
My name is Paul Dennis Evers, and I live in Toronto , Ontario Canada.
My father is William Titus Evers , b June 15, 1908 in London England. My father's parents were: William Henry Eversb Sept. 11, 1882dFeb 21, 1944 Eva Elizabeth Harvey b Feb 9, 1882d Feb 9, 1966
I have never been able to trace beyond my grandparents, and I have always wondered where their background lies. Apparently, William Henry grew up in an orphanage in England, but I have no supporting evidence of this. Him and Eva were devout Salvation Army members.
They came to Canada about 1912 with my father, and his sister. They went to Fort Francis Ontario ( now called Thunder Bay).
A number of years later they moved the family to Toronto.
I have been told a stry by my Aunt, that the reason William Henry grew up in an orphanage was because his parents died shortly after having moved to England from Germany.
This could be true, but it is not substantiated by any evidence.
Let me know if you receive this and if their is any possible connection
