Below is a copy of a Bible record copied from a compilation of LA bible records made by the DAR.I believe other organizations have copied the same record.Most states have a DAR library, and also the Main DAR Library is in Washington, DC.I don't have the vol. # (the compilations are numbered by vol.), but I can get it for you if you can't find it.The bible entries in the DAR collections are suppossedly written as entered in the bible.
Is there any archival information to suggest that Sarah was Evan's grandmother?I think the "rumor" that Sarah was Evan's grandmother came from an attempt to merge the two Evan Pendarvises of the time.The other Evan was a son of Joseph and Rachel Pendarvis of old Colleton District, SC and later Wayne Co., GA.
