Are you or any of your family from around Waycross, Ga? I am trying to find links also. My name is McEvans but I was told it was change from mcevan by my father and his brothers. I know very little, except my Grandmother's name was Ida Elizabeth Newsome Mcevans. I know nothing about my grandfather. I understand he left the family of 4 boys and 1 girl maybe in the 20's or 30's.
